Primal Credo is a fresh, modern reading of the Apostles’ Creed. Some followers of Christ have never heard of the creed and others recite the creed Sunday after Sunday without giving it much thought. I wrote this book to help new Christians and seasoned saints enter into the creed and discover our DNA as believers in Jesus Christ.
Primal Credo brings to light an ancient creed for these modern times.The Apostles’ Creed is an entry point into God’s story. From “I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth” to “I believe in…the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting” the Apostles’ Creed provides a helpful synopsis of God’s story recorded in Scripture. Both the creed and the Scriptures are gifts from the historic church to the contemporary church. The creed works to keep us focused on the big ideas of the Bible, namely God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Primal Credo allows everyday Christians to understand and live out the essentials of the Christian faith.
Shape Shifters is a bold spiritual adventure in pursuit of the elusive change Christians are looking for. During a time when moral failures in Christian leadership seem to be too common, followers of Jesus are looking for authentic, real heart change that is grounded in Scripture, God-centered, and verified by the historical Church. Above all, we want a model of spiritual transformation that works.
Willpower has failed. Trendy, self-help techniques leave us unfulfilled. Simplistic answers no longer satisfy. We all want to experience change and we know it is God’s desire to conform us into the image of Jesus, but where do we begin? Shape Shifters is a deeply personal book for me. I draw from the Scripture, church history, and contemporary discussions of spiritual transformation and integrates them into my own experience to open up the door to real life change. This book grew out of my rediscover of the Trinity and my desire to see myself and others experience spiritual transformation.
