Thomas Aquinas was one of the most influential thinkers in the history of Christianity and in Western Civilization. Yet his theological views can seem complex and presume acquaintance with technical philosophical language. Now Renick has produced an attractive and accessible account of Aquinas's thought and life that will make his views clear to non-specialists.

The topics dealt with include God, angels, evil, metaphysics, morality, sex, war, abortion and politics. This is an engaging and illuminating introduction to an all-important theologian. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russell | 11/11/2012

    " The book is a surface read. It only delves into philosophy very lightly. The story of Aquinas resisting temptation as his canonizing miracle was funny. I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TJ | 5/20/2012

    " Very good intro into aquinas. Though a tad flip at times. Didn't need to smartass commets or references to current culture. But still a good introduction and insight into Aquinas. "

    " Good introduction! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pastor Jamie Strickler | 8/17/2011

    " Good introduction to the thought of St. Thomas. Most of Aquinas' writings are written like legal arguments and are not very fun to read. This book will give one an wntertaining overview of this great Christian mind. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim | 7/19/2011

    " The book provides a general introduction to Aquinas, focusing more on his political and legal influence than on his theological insights. The book is greatly marred by the author's jokiness and entire absence of wit as he attempts to wink at the reader. Aquinas deserves better than such stupidity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Austin | 11/28/2010

    " I'm actually a fan of the Armchair Theologians book series and I never read such an excellent explanation of metaphysics than from this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russell | 7/30/2007

    " The book is a surface read. It only delves into philosophy very lightly. The story of Aquinas resisting temptation as his canonizing miracle was funny. I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would. "
