Dr. Carl R. Trueman comes from Birmingham in England. He studied at Cambridge and Aberdeen , Scotland. For over ten years now, the church historian teaches at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, USA . He also pastors a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church in nearby Ambler (PA). From 1998 to 2007 Trueman was editor of the journal Themelios. The reformed theologian has written some books, among these a biography of John Owen, arguably the most important British theologian of all time. On Reformation21 he blogs regularly.


Last week, December 9–13, Trueman taught ancient church history at the Baltic Reformed Theological Seminary (BRTS) in the Latvian capital Riga. Our church‘s curate Holger Lahayne some question abou his new book made use oft this opportunity to ask Carl some question about his 2012 book The Creedal Imperative.
In that book the author challenges the slogan “No creed but the Bible" (no authoritative confessional texts besides the Bible) – a position that is prevalent in many denominations and congregations. He now turns the tables: there is firm biblical basis to demand the formulation of creeds (hence the book‘s title: it is an imperative). Carl also describes the cultural challenges to confessions today, as well as the benefits of clearly formulated doctrinal texts, and finally he gives an overview of the most important confessions of church history. Just one quote: "The recitation of a creed in a worship service is one of the most countercultural things did Christians can do. It is an act of defiance , if not actual revolution ."
The interview gives a kind of overview of the basic thesis of the book. It will be followed by an English transcript and a translation into Lithuanian. English audio interview on Youtube:
