Item description for The Christian Faith: An Essay on the Structure of the Apostles' Creed by Henri de Lubac & Richard Arnandez...

This book does not pretend to impart any information to the learned historians of the creeds, save that, for better or worse, the author has often made use of their works. Nor does it deal in depth with any of the current theological problems, although it does not avoid alluding to them in passing. Nor should one seek in this book a systematic study or trinitarian doctrine or Christology. Its purpose is not even, at least not directly, pastoral. Rather, we have tried to make it sort of an introduction to catechesis, addressed to all those who, either in preparing candidates fro baptism or in teaching children or in a day to day preaching to Christian people, are entrusted with this most beautiful of all the roles: handing on the faith received from the apostles, always and infinitely fruitful even as it was when they themselves received it from Jesus Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Faith: An Essay on the Structure of the Apostles' Creed?

Some beautiful moments  Jul 25, 2008

Having read Catholicism and The Drama of Atheistic Humanism (De Lubac on top form), this book gives the impression that De Lubac's intellectual light had begun to fail.

Nonetheless, there are some brilliant gems in here and let me just quote one: "God is not a spectacle, He freely manifests himself by his Word and his Word "is never something closed which could be taken in at a glance like a circumscribed landscape; it is something that is always happening anew' like water from a spring or rays from a light. Hence it is not enough, as St Augustine said, to have been initiated once unless one is unceasingly inebriated at the fountain of eternal Light. To anyone who loves, this truth is immediately obvious; the fact and the voice of the Beloved are at each instance as new for him as yet he had never yet beheld them. Such a one cannot fear that the day might come when he will have exhausted God; he drinks at the source of a knowledge and of a love, which, he understand better and better, will eternally surpass him. A perfect answer to those who may say that eternity sounds dull!
