The Coming Era of Peace!

A Review of Fr. Joseph Iannuzzi's "The Splendor of Creation"

“The Splendor of Creation: The Triumph of the Divine Will on Earth and the Era of Peace in the Writings of the Church Fathers, Doctors, and Mystics”

Reviewed by Frank M. Rega

   In this must-have groundbreaking book, theologian Fr. Joseph L. Iannuzzi discusses a period of time in the not-to-distant future that many Christians eagerly await – the coming era of peace known as the Millennium. Written from a scholarly, theological perspective, the Splendor of Creation is readable, well documented, and highly informative.  While the text itself is barely two hundred pages, it is accompanied by almost six hundred footnotes.

    The thousand-year era of peace that is the subject of this work is definitively foretold in the twentieth chapter of St. John’s book of Revelation.  Satan, it is prophesied, will be cast into the abyss for a thousand years, and shall no longer deceive the nations until that time is finished.  Those who bore witness to Christ with their blood will come to life and reign with him during this millennium, in the “first resurrection.”  Fr. Iannuzzi’s book deals primarily with the interior, spiritual life and characteristics of the Christians who will live during this time.  It will be an age of universal peace, holiness and justice, when Christ will reign in the souls of men throughout the figurative thousand-year period.

    Catholic writers and mystics during the last century have frequently referred to a future era of peace using a variety of expressions such as:  the Second Pentecost, the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Eucharistic Reign of Jesus, and the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
