An excellent introductory approach to theology
on July 13, 2000
This book is a one volume compendium of Catholic Theology organized around the Nicene-Constantinople Creed. In addition to a detailed explantion of basic theological principles, the book also traces the history of the creed especially during the first centuries and details the many heresies that contributed to each word being carefully chosen for the final product. The author offers the reader many keen insights into the inner workings of the magisterium as each ecumenical council wrestled with the many agendas presented by the disparate factions who were represented.
