Fair. This item is listed as acceptable and has probably been well used. It could have considerable writing or highlighting throughout but is still usable and has been priced accordingly. Please do not buy if you are expecting a perfect copy. It has a couple more reads left before its time to be recycled. We ship within 1 business day and offer no hassle returns.

Very Good. 0898703166 1990 Communio Books / Ignatius Press (San Francisco), 5 1/4 x 8 inches tall trade paperback, 280 pp. Minor edgewear to covers. Remnants of price sticker to rear cover. Otherwise, a very good to near fine copy-clean, bright and unmarked. A revised second edition with an improved translation and an in-depth 20 page preface by then Cardinal Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI. Uses the Apostle's Creed as a basis for a modern interpretation of the foundations of Christianity. ~SP09B~
I have to admit that this is the first book I have read in the religous category. I am amazed at the information and thoughts that this book has to offer. It really has given me a lot to analyze and think over - a lot. I recommend this book to everyone - because all religions are referenced and mentioned - but of course the emphasis is on Christianity. I feel the title is not correct - it really is a book on the history of Christianity and how the church evolved into what it is today. But it is much more than the History of Christianity - it is a book on the history of religion. However, it is not light reading - but it is worth the effort.
