The Need for Creeds Today

Confessional Faith in a Faithless Age

Baker Academic 2020

The Need for Creeds Today: Confessional Faith in a Faithless Age (Baker Academic, 2020) offers an invitation to the historic creeds and confessions makes a biblical and historical case for their necessity and shows why they are essential for Christian faith and practice today. J. V. Fesko, a leading Reformed theologian with a broad readership in the academy and the church, demonstrates that creeds are not just any human documents but biblically commended resources for the well-being of the church, as long as they remain subordinate to biblical authority. He also explains how the current skepticism and even hostility toward creeds and confessions came about.
