Is Creation Eternal?

[The author examines the integral relationship between the Trinity and creation based on the theology of St. Bonaventure. Divine action is considered not as episodic intervention but within the context of relationship. Because creation is a finite expression of the infinite Word of God, it is intrinsically related to the primacy of Christ. An eternal creation rests on God’s eternal resolve to love a finite order, and Christ is first in God’s intention to love. It is argued that the eternal act of creation lies in the eternal nature of God’s love.]
