Modern Christians have often hesitated to embrace the ancient creeds because of our “nothing but the Bible” tradition. In What Christians Ought to Believe Michael Bird opens our eyes to the possibilities of the Apostle’s Creed as a way to explore and understand the basic teachings of the Christian faith.
In this special Olive Tree collection not only can you read the What Christians Ought to Believe text, but you can also listen to author and theologian Michael F. Bird's What Christians Ought to Believe: Audio Lectures as well, supplementing and augmenting the text.
Bringing together theological commentary, tips for application, and memorable illustrations, What Christians Ought to Believe summarizes the basic tenets of the Christian faith using the Apostle’s Creed as its entryway. After first emphasizing the importance of creeds for the formation of the Christian faith, each text chapter, following the Creed’s outline, introduces the Father, the Son, and the Spirit and the Church. The text also features an appendix that includes the Apostles’ Creed in the original Latin and Greek. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, the What Christians Out to Believe: Audio Lectures include high-quality live recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.
Michael F. Bird is Academic Dean and lecturer in theology at Ridley College in Melbourne, Australia. He is the author of Jesus and the Origins of the Gentile Mission, The Saving Righteousness of God, Evangelical Theology, Romans (Story of God Bible Commentary Series), The Gospel of the Lord: How the Early Church Wrote the Story of Jesus, and editor of The Apostle Paul: Four Views.
