Gender And The Nicene Creed By Elizabeth R Geitz

753 words - 3 pages

Initially, I would like to define certain terms before I come to the major points discussed in the book. The title “Gender and the Nicene Creed” – Dictionary defines Nicene Creed as “a later creed of closely similar form (Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed or Constantinopolitan Creed) referred, perhaps erroneously, to the Council of Constantinople (A.D. 381), received universally in the Eastern Church and, with an addition introduced in the 6th century A.D., accepted generally throughout western Christendom.”The book discusses a clear-cut and a infiltrating, plus a famous issue and at the same time erudite based topic.

There are people from different schools of thought and no doubt that there are people who don’t fully believe what the book says. But the writer has so beautifully makes us all think in our own perspective.Geitz writes: "My desire is to help us move from an initial emotional response to feminine traditions of the church to one that is based on sound biblical, historical and theological principles."As already mentioned, Geitz has not only studied this matter herself before writing but she wants us also to think about it and not to follow whatever is been taught to us verbally.Writers of sacred writ have loads of pictures in their mind when they wrote on God, Jesus and Holy Spirit. But only the benevolent approach seemed to be valid and is being followed. When we read Geitz’s book after going through different scholar’s views and abstruse, we can see clearly that she has...
