He does not so much paraphrase Aquinas's carefully logical statements about the Christian faith as to annotate them extensively. Many readers will benefit.

There comes a time in the life of every Christian when he or she desires to go deeper in his or her walk with God. For many, this task can seem daunting.
Enter St. Thomas Aquinas. He wrote his great Summa theologiae, or summary of theology, to fill the need for a thorough survey of Christian teaching. Unfortunately, the Summa theologiae is thousands of pages and can be intimidating to the beginner.
Now Frederick Bauerschmidt has come to the rescue. Holy Teaching presents key parts of the Summa theologiae, which are explained by Bauerschmidt. These selections will encourage students, pastors, and interested laypeople to spend quality time in the company of a great Christian teacher.
Frederick Christian Bauerschmidt (Ph.D., Duke University) is associate professor of theology at Loyola College in Baltimore, Maryland. He is the author of Why the Mystics Matter and Julian of Norwich and the Mystical Body Politic of Christ.
