Philip Schaff's The Creeds of Christendom is a massive set, originally published in three volumes and here reproduced across five volumes, cataloging and explaining the many different creeds from the myriad Christian denominations. The differences in belief between Calvinists, Lutherans, and Presbyterians, for example, can often be subtle, so a thorough examination of the particulars as well as an explanation for how those different beliefs result in a different worldview is necessary.
Volume One: Part I covers:
. creeds in general
. the Ecumenical creeds
. the creeds of the Greek Church
. the creeds of the Roman Church
. the creeds of the Evangelical Churches
. the creeds of the Evangelical Lutheran Churches
. the creeds of the Evangelical Reformed Churches.
This volume contains the table of contents for all of Volume One.
