The Theology of Creation: A Brief Course

The Theology of Creation is an introduction to the study of the proclamation of faith established in the Creed that God has created Heaven and Earth – all things visible and invisible.

This brief course looks at the first three chapters of the book of Genesis and examines the depth and beauty of God’s work of creation, culminating with the creation of the human person. In studying the theology of creation, we are led to a deeper understanding and appreciation for the foundation of God’s saving plans for a fallen world, a foretaste of the work of Christ the Redeemer.

The Theology of Creation is a collection of five lectures – available below – presented by Rev. Peter Armenio, priest of the Prelature of Opus Dei.
