The Origins of the Creed of the Christian Community

By Peter Selg, Matthew Barton

Price: $17.95



About the Book

Unlike other Christian creeds, the creed of The Christian Community is not a statement of belief, but rather a series of assertions that act as a path to a deeper understanding of Christianity.

Peter Selg offers an insightful and informative overview of how, in the time leading up to the founding of The Christian Community nearly one hundred years ago, Rudolf Steiner formulated both the creed itself and its founding principles.

He also examines the history of Christian creeds – including the Apostles� Creed and the Nicene Creed – and compares them to each other. Finally, he explores the ongoing significance of the creed for The Christian Community today.
