Overview

This classic text, a brief yet powerful exposition of the Apostles' Creed, introduces in a fully ecumenical way the basic beliefs that have animated and informed the historical faith of Christians. Renowned theologian Hans Schwarz not only corrects common misunderstandings of core credal convictions. He also guides Christians into the exciting quest for understanding the faith they profess.

"What Christians Believe deals with the Christian faith in relation to contemporary challenges such as secularism and science, the holocaust, and nuclear war.in a readable way, without opaque theological jargon. It is an excellent teaching resource for adult discussion groups and for individuals who desire to grow in knowledge and faith."
-John Tietjen Bishop of the Metropolitan Chicago Synod of the ELCA

"Schwarz's well-written book would be helpful for both congregational groups and individual readers. His answers are not simplistic, nor does he convey the notion that all questions can be satisfactorily resolved. He does, however, draw the reader into the heart of the issues so that one can wrestle with them. I heartily recommend this book."
-Herbert Chilstrom Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

Hans Schwarz is Professor of Systematic Theology and Contemporary Issues and Director of the Institute of Protestant Theology at the University of Regensburg, Germany.
