Excerpt from Creeds and Churches: Studies in Symbolics
As a.guide to the historical study of Creeds and their vital significance Principal Stewart's volume will be welcomed. Theology possessed in Principal Stewart a distinguished philosophical student, trained to observe with unbiassed detachment, and yet also a man deeply interested in the actual life and work of the Churches.
Discussion of such subjects as Heresy, Venial Error and permissible Divergence, the rival claims of the theological inquirer and the guardians of our doctrinal heritage, Papal Infallibility, Ecclesiastical Unity, the necessity, philosophical and practical, for doctrinal definition, Creeds and the Bible, and Creed Revision, appropriately finds a place in the volume, which should be all the more welcome inasmuch as its constant aim ls brevity so far as is consistent with lucidity.
The text of the volume is practically as Principal Stewart finally passed it for publication. The editor is responsible for the notes, appendices.
