There is an urgent need with in the life of the church to get back to the core of our faith. In response to the spread and acclaim of Dr. Timothy Tennent’s recent book, This We Believe: Meditations on the Apostles’ Creed, Seedbed is pleased to present J. D. Walt’s CREED: A Seven-week Reflection Guide on the Apostles’ Creed, a vital resource for individuals, small groups, and whole congregations.
Creeds matter. They make us who we are. From retail outlets to political candidates to national governments, everyone vies to sow their creed into the seedbed of our hearts and minds these days. They all want us to believe what they believe, carefully crafting their creeds with the hope of gaining our affirmation.
This little book is an effort to bring particular focus to the Apostles’ Creed. In these pages you will be invited into a daily practice of reading Scripture, meditating or dwelling on the text, and reflecting on the teachings of some of the Church’s earliest leaders. Over seven weeks you'll be offered ample opportunity to delve deep into the biblical world of this great creed seeking instruction, correction, understanding, healing, revelation, and transformation.
