Description

Here in one volume is a new translation of St. Thomas Aquinas' masterwork in surprisingly non-technical modern English and paragraph format. For the first time the Summa, which synthesizes with immense scholarship and brilliance Aristotelian learning on the nature of the world and the human person with biblical teaching on God's loving purpose in creating them, is available in a concisely distilled translation and in a form that will appeal both to professional students and to interested general readers. The work is available in both hardcover and paperback formats.

Praise

"The real meat of St. Thomas Aquinas has been captured here with remarkable good judgment."

"The teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas is presented in continuously flowing paragraphs with appropriate chapter headings, much more like the style of modern philosophers since Descartes....The real meat of St. Thomas Aquinas has been captured here with remarkable good judgment, and it is in fact a fresh and stimulating experience to read Aquinas' doctrine on a given point gathered all together."
