The Nicene Creed: Ancient Words in the Light of Modern Faith

The Nicene Creed was both a religious and a political tool, a humanly constructed statement of belief that gave order and meaning to the world of its time. The question this book raises is whether it still gives order and meaning to our world–or rather, what kind of order and meaning does it give to our world.


“Exciting, perceptive, insightful vignettes designed to open the Christian story to new meaning, Martha Porter’s words fill the Creed with contemporary understanding and will free countless people to be able to say it with integrity.” –John Shelby Spong, author: Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World
