The patristic doctrine of creation

“In a profound sense the doctrine of creation undergirds the developed pattern of patristic theology, expressing its grasp of God’s gracious being, nature and activity, as well as its perception of the world’s contingency and need for saving union with the divine, a union effected in the being, nature and atoning activity of the incarnate Word. I would submit that the questions posed by such a standpoint remain the fundamental theological issues which have to be addressed.”

—Frances Young, The Making of the Creeds (London: SCM, 1991), p. 103.
