About the Author

Ben Myers is director of the Millis Institute at Christian Heritage College and a research fellow of the Centre for Public and Contextual Theology at Charles Sturt University in Australia. He is the author of Salvation in My Pocket: Fragments of Faith and Theology and Christ the Stranger: The Theology of Rowan Williams.


"Ben Myers has given readers a precious gift in this short series of meditations on the Apostles' Creed. Like the Church Fathers whose work permeates this book, he treats us to a series of pithy, pertinent reflections that demonstrate theological depth--yet with a surprisingly light touch. Tackling hard matters like gender and God's fatherhood, the virginal conception, the descent into hell, and the persons of the divine Trinity, Myers is alive to both the richness of Christian tradition and the needs of the hour. This is popular theology in the best sense of that term, making accessible the great truths of the Christian faith."

--Oliver D. Crisp, Professor of Systematic Theology, School of Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Like the Creed, this gem of a book answers the question, 'What do Christians believe?' But because it is sensitive to the unique doubts and fears and cynicism of the 21st century, it winsomely answers the question behind that question: 'How could Christians possibly believe that?' Myers shows as much as he tells, introducing us to the audacious wisdom of ancient voices whose insights prove timely and perennial. This is the catechesis we need for a secular age, overcoming the forgetting we parade as enlightenment."

--James K. A. Smith, Calvin College, author of You Are What You Love and Awaiting the King

"I am very thankful to Ben Myers for his concise, readable commentary on the Apostles' Creed! He joins the refreshing movement that is retrieving the church's long and well-established theological consensus and urging the contemporary church to embrace this wisdom from the past. His book helps today's church confess the Apostles' Creed as essential truth about the triune God and the salvation he offers."

--Gregg R. Allison, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, author of Historical Theology: An Introduction to Christian Doctrine
