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 II covers:
. the Catechism of Geneva AD 1546 and 1541
. the Reformed Confessions of France and Netherlands
. the Reformed Confessions of Germany
. the Reformed Confessions of Bohemia, Poland, and Hungary
. the Anglican Articles of Religion
. the Presbyterian Confessions of Scotland
. the Westminster Standards
. the Creeds of Modern Evangelical Denominations.
(See Volume One: Part I for the Table of Contents for this volume.)
