In his foreword to Fr. Victor Warkulwiz's work, The Doctrines of Genesis 1-11, Bishop Robert A. Vasa wrote:
Today the Catholic Church has well-developed theologies of redemption and sanctification but no well-developed theology of creation. That is because so many of her influential thinkers have abandoned the sound creation theology of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church and have embraced instead the false principles of evolutionism.
Bishop Vasa went on to commend Fr. Warkulwiz for his "accurate, thorough, and readable answers . . . to many questions about origins that perplex the modern Catholic."
In this Compendium of the Doctrines of Genesis 1-11, Brother Charles Madden, OFM, Conv., makes these "accurate, thorough, and readable answers" even more accessible to Catholic readers by presenting short, succinct summaries of each of the sixteen doctrines Fr. Victor has drawn from the first eleven chapters of the book of Genesis. The Compendium is an invaluable resource for Catholic universities, schools, CCD programs, and home libraries.
