I’m excited to see my friend Winfield Bevin’s new book Creed: Connect to the Basic Essentials of Historic Christian Faith (NavPress) releases today. Winfield is a gifted writer and theologian who rebels against what C.S. Lewis called “chronological snobbery” with a true historical consciousness.
One of the growing trends I’m seeing today among the younger generational of evangelicals is a recognition of the importance of being confessional. That is not to say that a document or confession is given a place of authority or primary source in Christian faith; rather, confessions are theological consensus statements by which we can agree with saints across generations the faith once for all delivered to the saints.
Winfield’s book Creed addresses three core components of Christian orthodoxy, namely the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Apostle’s Creed. This resource will be a great discipleship tool to anchor believers new and old in the doctrinal, ethical, and spiritual foundations in the Christian faith.
