Listen to theologian Jaroslav Pelikan on NPR’s Speaking of Faith:

For many modern Americans, the very idea of reciting an unchanging creed, composed centuries ago, is troublesome. But, Jaroslav Pelikan, who died in 2006, was a scholar who devoted his life to exploring the vitality of ancient theology and creeds. He insisted that even modern pluralists need strong statements of belief.

Dr. Pelikan was a great scholar of church history — one of his first major works was the translation of the entire Collected Works of Martin Luther in English. Late in life, he converted to Eastern Orthodoxy.
