I really enjoyed this book as Rowan Williams really explores the great depths of beliefs in Christianity He weights up the Creed in relation to the challenges and complexities of life in the world today. The book includes really important questions in Christianity which helps the reader understand more about the concept of Jesus as Gods son, and how very little people believe Jesus as God's son where as now a lot of people do.
Another interesting question is how we face evil and suffering today, a lot of people question God because of the evil and suffering in the world.
It's very helpful as so many people don't really understand or don't know how to read the Bible.
There is a characteristic depth of thoughtfulness that will reveal new dimensions each time this book is read this is why I would defiantly read it again!
I would defiantly recommend this book to anyone interested in religion; it really does give some good answers and explanations in Christianity.
Sorry, meant to write: "Rowan Williams' book sounds worth reading." Not sure how "Atkinson" popped into my fevered brain!

While this is only a short review, I found it thought provoking. Atkinson’s book sounds worth reading. The Church of England has thirty nine articles of faith, known as THE ARTICLES OF RELIGION, agreed upon by the Archbishops, Bishops, and the whole clergy of the Provinces of Canterbury and York, in London in 1562 during the reign of Henry VIII. Of the thirty nine articles of faith, Article VIII, “Of the Three Creeds”, states that: “The Three Creeds, Nicene Creed, Athanasius's Creed, and that which is commonly called the Apostles' Creed, ought thoroughly to be received and believed: for they may be proved by most certain warrants of Holy Scripture.” And, the conclusion of the Nicene Creed states that: “And we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. And we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.”

I agree with the constructive comments below. In regards to the book, how would it comare to say Mere Christianity by C.S.Lewis as a good introduction to Christianity.
