Designed for clergy and lay people in congregations, this book makes an excellent resource for exploring the question of why and how the church can, should, and may confess its faith today, in a pluralistic world and in an ecumenical context. Also, it provides a basis for considering certain theological issues that have emerged as significant for a contemporary confession.
