About-

In eight chapters, David Harned explores the theology of the Apostles’ Creed, taking the position that the creed, in fact, provides us with a master image for self-understanding, and that controlling image is “child of God.” The creed is seen as being important for personality formation and the development of “character,” rather than as either a statement of beliefs or a loyalty oath.

Harned’s ninth and final chapter is intended for those who wish to pursue further the question of master imagery for the formation of a Christian Sense of Identity.
