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 Two covers:
. Scripture Confessions
. the Anti-Nicene and Nicene Rules of Faith and Baptismal Creeds
. Symbola ecumenica
. Romans Creeds
. Greek and Russian Creeds
. Orthodox Confessions of the Eastern Church
. the Confession of Dositheus, or the Eighteen Decrees of the Synod of Jerusalem
. the Longer Catechism of the Orthodox, Catholic, Eastern Church
. and the Old Catholic Union Creeds.
Swiss theologian PHILIP SCHAFF (1819-1893) was educated in Germany and eventually came to the United States to teach at the German Reformed Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania. He wrote a number of books and hymnals for children, including History of the Christian Church and The Creeds of the Evangelical Protestant Churches.
