Why were the early Christians willing to die to protect a singleiotaof the creed? Why have the Judeans, Romans, and Persians—among others—seen the Christian creed as a threat to the established social order? InThe Creed: Professing the Faith Through theAges, bestselling author Dr. Scott Hahn recovers and conveys the creed’s revolutionary character. Tracing the development of the first formulations of faith in the early Church through later ecumenical councils,The Creedtells the story of how the very profession of our belief in Christ fashions us for heavenly life as we live out our earthly days.
