Today's best-known Catholic theologian here gives a clear and unencumbered explanation of the Genesis creation narratives. Cardinal Ratzinger discusses God as creator, the meaning of the biblical creation accounts, the creation of human beings, sin and salvation, and the consequences of faith in creation. Translated from German, this work is an excellent creation catechesis for adults."The readable but challenging meditations attempt a balance between extremes of fundamentalism and rationalism and emphasize a unity between the Old and New Testaments."--Library Journal"These homilies on Genesis. will be a source of light to many priests and religious educators who are seeking the deeper meaning of the biblical truths of dependence or of the Sabbath rest or who are looking for an answer to the claim that God's mandate 'Fill the earth and subdue it' is responsible for the shameless exploitation of the earth that we have witnessed."--Liguorian"With penetrating insight, Cardinal Ratzinger here treats the profoundly important and far-reaching doctrine of Genesis. ...
