Description


Carl Trueman Analyzes How Ancient Creeds and Confessions Protect and Promote Biblical Christianity in a Culture of Expressive Individualism

Historic statements of faith--such as the Heidelberg Catechism, the Apostles' Creed, and the Westminster Confession of Faith--have helped the Christian church articulate and adhere to God's truth for centuries. However, many modern evangelicals reject these historic documents and the practices of catechesis, proclaiming their commitment to "no creed but the Bible." And yet, in today's rapidly changing culture, ancient liturgical tradition is not only biblical--it's essential.

In Crisis of Confidence, Carl Trueman analyzes how creeds and confessions can help the Christian church navigate modern concerns, particularly around the fraught issue of identity. He contends that statements of faith promote humility, moral structure, and a godly view of personhood, helping believers maintain a strong foundation amid a culture in crisis. This is a revised edition of Trueman's The Creedal Imperative, now with a new section on the rise of expressive individualism.

  • Updated Edition of The Creedal Imperative: Includes fresh cultural insights on modern individualism
  • Written by Carl Trueman: Author of The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self (100,000+ copies sold)
  • Theological and Historical: Explains why creeds and confessions are necessary, how they have developed over time, and how they can function in the church of today and tomorrow
  • Ideal for Pastors, Professors, and Those Interested in Liturgical Tradition
