Good list, Andy. Also:

Hans Küng, Credo: The Apostles' Creed Explained for Today (1992).

Wolfhart Pannenberg, The Apostles' Creed in the Light of Today's Questions (1972).

Higton's book is excellent (I met Mike recently and told him so. He said he'd now do some of it differently. Well, of course, Mike - it's now 6 years old! ;)) In the Introduction, Higton pays tribute to Daniel Migliore's Faith Seeking Understanding: An Introduction to Christian Theology (2004) - and rightly so. Neither book, of course, is a commentary on the Creed as such.

Nor is another outstanding book: Mark A. McIntosh, Divine Teaching: An Introduction to Christian Theology (2008) - very "innovative" and "imaginative" (as is rightly observed on the back cover). If I remember correctly, Ben Myers recommended it to me.

That should keep you going! By the way, just out of Mansfield College, within the first month of ministry, I decided to do a series of sermons on the Apostles' Creed, as much for my own sake - to discover what I really thought about the faith, to get my head straight - as for my poor congregation's! I must revisit them ...

Thanks Kim. The price of the Higton volume only thing holding me back (hoping to find it in an SCM summer sale). I'm three years into ministry, but has likewise been helpful in lots of ways, hopefully for congregation too. "He will come again to judge" tomorrow.
