This book gathers a series of articles published between 1974 and 1995, which have in common to face the issues from a dogmatic-speculative perspective. In the prologue, Cardinal Ratzinger points out that the core of Christian anthropology is the idea of participation in the divine life. This participation - which will only reach its culmination at the end of time - has been realized in an eminent way in Jesus Christ by taking on human nature, and it is also realized, in a different way, in each of the members of the Church. It is this path that this book analyzes in its various chapters, dedicated precisely to the creation of the world, divine filiation, the person of Jesus Christ, the Church and eschatology.
