From the description, I believed I would easily be able to look up the different creeds and understand the basic philosophies. This is simply not possible. The book is laid out in a time line approach and not indexable by creed. It's also a massive book with a lot of dry, arcane information so a cover to cover read won't appeal to the casual reader.
I recommend this book very highly because it cleary maps out the ways in which Christianity has matured throughout the centuries. Christians throughout time have had differing opinions about what the inherent Word of God says. Often times some believers have been completely wrong and tragically formulated heresies with their ideas. Leaders of the church have been present to confront the innacurate thesis. The Creeds of The Churches lays out the what the church of those times truly believed in order that there would be no argument as to what the church stood for.
Purchasing this book is truly a great investment, one that will indeed bring you to a closer understanding of the beliefs which men before us believed. Beliefs which soldify what we believe today.
