In practically the only recent book in English to give a global picture of the theology of creation, Paul Haffner explores God's masterpiece, the spiritual and material cosmos, from the angels to man and woman centred in Christ. Paul Haffner provides an authoritative, detailed and systematic introduction to this fundamental subject in Christian theology. This is the first volume in a series that has now seen publication of The Sacramental Mystery, the Mystery of Reason and the Mystery of Mary. All these titles have become essential texts in Catholic seminary teaching, and the series is now being published in Italian translation by Vatican Press. Paul Haffner lectures in systematic and dogmatic theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University, the Pontifical Lateran University and the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome.
