Philip Schaff's The Creeds of Christendom is a massive set, originally published in three volumes and here reproduced across five volumes, cataloging and explaining the many different creeds from the myriad Christian denominations. The differences in belief between Calvinists, Lutherans, and Presbyterians, for example, can often be subtle, so a thorough examination of the particulars as well as an explanation for how those different beliefs result in a different worldview is necessary. Volume Three: Part I covers: . the creeds of the Evangelical Lutheran Church . the creeds of the Evangelical Reformed Churches, including the Heidelberg Catechisms, the Ten Theses of Berne, and the Saxon Visitation Articles . the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion of the Church of England. This volume contains the Table of Contents for all of Volume Three. Swiss theologian PHILIP SCHAFF (1819-1893) was educated in Germany and eventually came to the United States to teach at the German Reformed Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania. He wrote a number of books and hymnals for children, including History of the Christian Church and The Creeds of the Evangelical Protestant Churches.
