The Quest for the Creed

The Quest for the Creed


“People have fallen into a foolish habit of speaking of orthodoxy as something heavy, humdrum and safe. There never was anything so perilous or so exciting as orthodoxy.” G.K. Chesterton

Described as “a Chestertonian romp through the Apostle’s Creed”–The Quest for the Creed consists of twenty short chapters exploring the Apostle’s Creed.

Quest for the Creed is the newly published and updated version of Adventures in Orthodoxy. With newly written chapters, this edition takes the reader one step further into the intriguing and mysterious Apostle’s Creed.



“In this exciting book, Longenecker follows in the imaginative footsteps of Chesterton and Lewis. He sees and seizes the thrill of truth with insights of pyrotechnic brilliance.” —Joseph Pearce, author, Through Shakespeare’s Eyes

“Here is orthodoxy as heavy as the universe, made to dance like the universe. Reading this is like coming upon old Augustine dressed up like St Francis.” —Thomas Howard, author, Evangelical is Not Enough

“An engaging and energetic book that explains the Apostle’s Creed to the curious, the skeptical, and the puzzled. It uses a popular, but learned, mixture of references to philosophy, theology, biology, history, pop culture, and great literature, drawing on everyone from atheist Richard Dawkins and novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky to saint Thomas Aquinas and our Lord Jesus Christ.” —Carl E. Olson, editor, Ignatius Insight
