We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up. But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life? The Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs, contains some powerful answers.
This is what Adam has to say about Creed: In some ways it is my attempt to do what C.S. Lewis did in 1943 with Mere Christianity – to help Christians understand what they believe, but even more importantly, to make the case for Christian faith for those who have doubts or questions.
I use the Apostles’ Creed as a way of looking at the essential tenants of Christianity and then look at how we make sense of these things in our modern world, and why these beliefs still matter. As I wrote it I was thinking of the many young adults who grew up in church but no longer attend.
• Jesus Christ

For small groups there is a leaders guide available along with a small group DVD which was filmed at Resurrection Downtown. There are also resources for children and youth for congregations looking to do a church wide study.
