The organization of The Apostles' Creed is based on the concept of the Trinity. Thus, the creed has three main sections: the Father (in Deum Patrem), the Son (in Jesum Christum), the Holy Spirit (in Spiritum Sanctum). The bulk of the creed is taken up in the middle section, dealing with the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The bulk of the lessons are questions with answers given. Most questions have Scripture references and some make direct reference to the Heidelberg Catechism. For discussion in a group setting, the intent is to read the question and examine the references. Then the group can begin to answer the question, with the leader using the "Answer" material to spur or facilitate discussion as necessary. In this way the material can be worked through much like a catechism would be.
I am very grateful for this treatment by Rick Brannan. He is faithful to the concise and memorable content of the Apostles' Creed while expositing its meaning. He addresses the depth of the creed through an easily-digestible question-and-answer format. He gives us further riches in showing the interaction of the Heidelberg Catechism, itself a treasure of historical teaching of the faith, with the Apostles' Creed.
Denmark became a nation amidst the turbulence of the nineteenth century, an era plagued by war, bankruptcy, and territorial loss. Building the Nation is an insightful study of this formation, emphasizing the crucial role of N.F.S. Grundtvig, the father of modern Denmark. Persevering through years of humiliation, internal conflict, and occupation, Denmark now boasts one of the world's most stable and democratic political systems, as well as one of its richest economies. From disaster to success, Building the Nation emphasizes the role of national icons and social movements in the formation of Denmark. The poet, political philosopher, clergyman, and founding father N.F.S. Grundtvig is compared to Rousseau and Durkheim in France, to Herder and Fichte in Germany, and to other great thinkers in the United States and Ireland. During his lifetime, the kingdom of Denmark transformed from monarchy to democracy and moved from agrarianism to a modern economy - evolutions to which Grundtvig himself contributed. He has become a fundamental and inescapable reference-point for discussions about nation, democracy, freedom, religion, and education in Denmark and abroad. Situating Grundtvig in both the history of Denmark and the intellectual history of nineteenth-century Europe, Building the Nation argues for the centrality of his influence in the making of modern Denmark, as well as the continuing influence of his work.

With that being told, throughout my years in various ministries such as jail ministry as well as my personal witness of countless souls around me bound by addiction; I have come to the realization after many years of observation and personal interaction, that there are certain traits that are found in almost every case of adverse, self-destructive behavior regardless of race, sex, or age. It is my goal and hope that this written work would help many of those hurting in the bonds of addiction and depression as I once was. This book is for all who are bound by the "pain of past" and struggle to cope with their daily lives. This is a book of answers, not of endless questions, as is normal Psychology today. A work dedicated for all who are bound in addiction, and have become "mental slaves" to their horrible past hurts, found tortured by inner shame. "Hidden shame always breeds mental totalitarianism." It is written in a direct, head-on style to address your deeply engrained problems directly and thoroughly. This book is truly unlike anything that you have ever read before. The answer to your "pain of past" is here!
