"The knowledge that man is not just any random product of the earth, but that everyone is a project of God, is ultimately the only supporting reason for the inviolability of human dignity."
Joseph Ratzinger elaborates this thought in a theological interpretation of the biblical texts of creation. So he traces God's project, the Christian world and human image, in his well-known clear and brilliant language and helps the reader to a profound understanding of creation and how it is dealt with.
This book is based on tape recordings of the lectures that Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger gave in 1985 in St. Georgen am Längsee (Austria).
