I Believe: The Creed and You
Publication date: 2012-09-01
Number of pages: 128
An essential guide to the Creed as a statement of faith and personal conviction.
As part of a series exploring the prayers of our faith, I Believe enriches our understanding of the core teachings of the Creed in a way that assists us in forming our own personal convictions. Like other reflections on the Creed, this book conveys the heart of Catholic belief, but unique in that it connects the tenets of faith to our everyday life and experience. It is not only about what the Creed says to us, but what the Creed says about us and how we can bring its meaning to life in our own lives.
A superb resource for exploring the New Evangelization, the book challenges and helps us in the process of internalizing the teachings of the Church and making them our own personal convictions. It is more than a reflection of faith, it is also a reflection of who we are and what we are meant to be.
