An excellent book for introducing basic theology

An excellent book based upon the Apostle's Creed and explaining how Christians understood their beliefs. It is a book that explains how faith is built on understanding.

Unfortunate choice of reader for a good book

The reader does not have any tangible sense of reverence in her reading. She would, perhaps, do a great job in other genres, but it was very distracting when speaking of holy things.

Four stars for the book. For the audiobook -- two or three.
