Key Truths of the Faith
Creeds and confessions have been used throughout Christian history to summarize the Bible’s teaching, distilling the key truths of Scripture into concise and succinct propositions. The ESV Bible with Creeds and Confessions contains 13 important creeds and confessions from church history placed after the complete ESV text, including the Apostles' Creed, the Belgic Confession, and the Heidelberg Catechism. Introductions written by theologian Chad Van Dixhoorn explain the history and original purpose of each—helping modern Christians see how these historic documents were designed to faithfully teach the truths of Scripture—truths aimed at shaping and motivating the lives of all who follow Christ.
