I Believe: The Nicene Creed
Eerdmans Young Readers, 2003 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages
The Nicene Creed, first drafted in A.D. 325 under the auspices of the Roman emperor Constantine, is the most widely accepted statement of Christian beliefs, used by Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, Calvinist, and other churches all over the world. Pauline Baynes, the much-loved illustrator of C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, here transforms this creed into a joyous hymn to God. Her breathtaking images of the sun, moon, and stars, creatures great and small, mythical beasts, death and resurrection, judgment and everlasting life are based on a lifetime's passion for Anglo-Saxon and Persian manuscripts. She brings these images together here in a spirited affirmation of faith that will delight and inspire readers everywhere.
