"In 1876, this three volume collection of cross-denominational creeds was deemed by its publisher a "symbolical library" well worth visiting. In Volume I, Schaff introduces the creeds by providing general information regarding their origin, value, authority, and classification. First, Schaff presents the Ecumenical Creeds, which contain the most basic doctrines of the Trinity and the Incarnation. These fundamental creeds are the Apostle's Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Creed of Chalcedon, and the Athanasian Creed. Next, Schaff considers the Greek and Roman Creeds, which differ significantly from Protestantism and from each other. Schaff then explores the Evangelical Protestant Creeds, which emerged around the time of the Reformation and are divided into two camps, Reformed and Lutheran. Schaff concludes by giving some attention to the Creeds of Modern Evangelical Denominations. In Volume II of Creeds of Christendom, Schaff reproduces the Scripture Confessions as well as the Ante-Nicene and Nicene Rules of Faith and Baptismal Creeds. He also presents the Orthodox Confession of the Eastern Church alongside the longer catechism of the Orthodox Eastern Church. Finally, Schaff concludes with the Old Catholic Union Creeds, which include several encyclical letters from the 19th and 20th century papacies. Schaff spends several sections comparing different forms of the Apostle's Creed, which range from the Old Roman African form to the Old Italian form. Schaff even provides an extensive table displaying the gradual formation of the Creed from 200AD to 750AD. This book is an excellent resource for comparative analysis, as Schaff provides the documents in their original languages alongside their English translations. Volume III is dedicated to the Lutheran, Anglican, Calvinistic, and later Protestant Confessions of Faith. Schaff's third volume is the first publication to compile the Modern Protestant Creeds, a rare group of documents containing the Congregational, Baptist, and Presbyterian Confessions. It also includes the Quaker Confession, the Easter Litany of the Moravians, and the Methodist Articles of Religion. This book is an excellent resource for comparative analysis, as Schaff provides the documents in their original languages alongside their English translations. Through Creeds of Christendom, Schaff aims to bring understanding to those who adhere to different creeds. He wisely reminds us that despite varying Christian denominations, Christ always remains at the center of the creeds" -- Amazon.com
