Foreword by Geoffrey Wainwright

Doctrinal preaching has fallen on hard times in recent years. Exploring and Proclaiming the Apostles' Creed seeks to stimulate renewed interest in -- and provide useful models of -- Christian proclamation that is truly rooted in the central tenets of the faith. Using the Apostles' Creed as a template for doctrinal, confessional preaching, this book draws together an ecumenical cast of respected biblical scholars and preachers who explain the creed and demonstrate its preaching possibilities. Each of the book's fifteen chapters consists of an essay that explores and illuminates one of the creed's articles of faith, followed by a scintillating sermon that models how that article can be preached as good news today.

"It is hard to imagine the gospel more clearly, intelligently, and pointedly articulated than in these learned essays and sermons. Exploring and Proclaiming the Apostles' Creed offers a timely challenge to speak, hear, and obey the Word of God attested in Holy Scripture through appropriation and confession of the faith of the church catholic. This book is a 'blessed disturbance' if ever there was one and a boon to catechesis and doctrinal preaching."
Henry H. Mitchell
"These comprehensive commentaries by great preachers on the Apostles' Creed offer a rich breadth of theological insight for sermons."
William H. Willimon
"Who says that doctrine won't preach? Here is grand, exalted Christian theology explored with creed and preached with vitality and conviction. A quite wonderful series of reflections on the great claims of our faith."
David Bartlett
"These essays and sermons enrich and play off each other in a splendid way. The book reminds us that the best doctrinal preaching is also always biblical preaching, and that sermons can be didactic without being pedantic."
