HASH(0x948dcd74) out of 5 stars Captivating Exposition of the Creed (with Reformed Bias) 13 Oct. 2001
By David L Rattigan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book from the ever thought-provoking Michael Horton. He takes the reader through each section of the Apostles' Creed, expounding on the doctrinal significance of each, relating each one to its implications for life and thought. He defends traditional teaching at every point against modern reinterpretations, contemporary philosophies and objections.
Horton is incredibly readable, offering excellent illustrations and drawing on sources from every tradition of philosophy and religion. His apologetic remarks are generally succinct and compelling. The chapter entitled, 'What if God became a man?' gives a grand overview of the whole history of God's redemption, from Genesis to Revelation, which will have every gospel believer on the edge of their seat.
One of his strongest points (and this is a feature of all his books) is his zeal for the outworking of the Christian faith in the world. He does not reduce Christianity to something wholly belonging to the 'sacred' sphere, but applies gospel truth to secular life. His concern is to see gospel doctrine impact believers here and now.
It will not take someone of the ilk of Sherlock Holmes to detect a Reformed bias. I have strong affinities with the Reformed stream of evangelicalism, though my theology would probably be better described as Arminian. However, Horton's own perspective was not enough to put me off. There is enough of the gospel in there, brilliantly expounded, to be of benefit to any truly evangelical reader.

HASH(0x948dcdc8) out of 5 stars Good overview of the tennents of the apostles creed 30 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This wasn't quite what I expected, but I still enjoyed it just the same. Michael Horton has basically written a title in which each section of the book is framed around the outline of the apostles creed, and he theologically examines each section of the creed scripturally and doctrinally, with plenty of references to literature and pop culture mixed in as well. I think I was initially expecting this to be more specifically about the creed's authorship, and a closer examination of each line of the creed and it's scriptural foundation and why the authors chose to include (or exclude) specific tennents of the faith into this creed. All the same, it's an excellent overview and the modern church would do well to re-examine and incorporate this creed back into worship again .

HASH(0x949c454c) out of 5 stars I am currently helping my people understand better the Nicene Creed which we use each Lord's Day 2 July 2014
By Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a pastor, I am currently helping my people understand better the Nicene Creed which we use each Lord's Day. My only disappointment with M. Horton's work is that it deals with the shorter and less inclusive Apostle's Creed. Nonetheless, it is
one of 12 plus volumes I am using, and where the Creeds parallel it is helpful.

HASH(0x9487b81c) out of 5 stars THIS IS AN EYE-OPENING BOOK 26 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
DR. HORTON TRULY SHOWS THE DANGERS OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY IN THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH. THE CHURCH IS SUBTLY MOVING AWAY FROM IT'S ROOTS AND HE SHOWS THAT IF THE CHURCH DOESN'T WAKE UP IT IS GOING TO FIND ITSELF DEEPER IN APOSTASY. WE DON'T NEED NEW FORMATS IN THE CHURCH. THE OLD WAYS SUCH AS THE APOSTLE'S CREED DEFINE OUR ROOTS AND NEED TO BE BROUGHT BACK.
