No one who has read the current archbishop of Canter-bury's magisterial work, Arius: Heresy and Tradition, can be in any doubt about his ability to operate with ease at the highest levels of scholarship and to write prose as sophisticated and dense as its subject matter. It is thus something of a delight to discover that he is also capable of writing books that also speak the language of the laity with grace, clarity, and charm. Of such is this small volume in which Williams follows in the hallowed footsteps of many theologians throughout the ages by offering a series of reflections on the various topical heads of the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds. The book consists of five chapters, dealing with faith, creation, Christology, reconciliation, ecclesiology, and the resurrection. The attractive presentation of the book is enhanced with the inclusion of numerous paintings and photographs.
Carl R. Trueman is professor of church history and vice president for academic affairs at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia).
