Editorial Reviews

"Domenican scholar Kerr (Oxford and Edinburgh) has written one ofthe most engrossing and informative books on Thomas published insome time."

"This country's outstanding philosopher-theologian."
Reviews in Religion and Theology of Fergus Kerr

"Fergus Kerr presents us with some few decades of reflection onAquinas, canvassing much of contemporary commentary in the process.The choice of topics represents a sounding that will offer at oncethe flavor and a sense of the rigorous dedication to inquiry whichAquinas represents. A thoroughly contemporary presentation of thenuances of this masterful thinker by an apprentice now masterhimself."
Professor David Burrell, University of Notre Dame

"Fergus Kerr OP demonstrates in this book how St. Thomas Aquinasis still at the heart of things, synthesising and refiningphilosophical and theological speech, and even where we do not seehis influence, we still feel it. There is no-one better tointroduce and explain the breadth and diversity of the study ofAquinas. After Aquinas: Versions of Thomism speaks with astrong and fluent voice: it is in short a tour de force. Itought to be on every theologian's bookshelf, and on everyundergraduate reading list in Systematic Theology in Britain andAmerica."
Laurence Paul Hemming, Heythrop College, University ofLondon

"Kerr's analysis presents fresh insight into Aquinas' thoughtand the scholarship that has grown up around it, from Cajetan andSuarez to John Milbank and Eugene Rogers. It will be a valuableresource for all those new to Thomas as well as for thoseinterested in exploring his thought in greater depth."
First Things

"[Kerr's] book is fun, and a rewarding one to read."
Church Times

"...provides a very useful service to those interested in thereception, in modern theology, of one of the greatest and mostinfluential of all Christian theologians."
Times Literary Supplement

"This represents a crucial step in moving contemporary Thomismforward; for it is only once we stop teaching, naively, nothing butour own limited interpretations of Thomas's thought, insteadattempting to present a more synthetic account, that we will enableour students to appreciate the complexity not only of Thomism, butindeed of Thomas himself."
Tijdschrift voor Filosofie

"There is often an illuminating sense of the anachronism of amodern view, the failure of an author to understand what Aquinaswas concerned about or the reasons for his putting a point in aparticular way."
Theology

"(I)t reviews competing interpretations of Aquinas's theology inan undogmatic, fair-minded, and perspicuous manner; not onlybeginning theology students but also specialists will learn muchfrom such an approach." The Thomist

"Fergus Kerr...has presented his readers with anothertheological tour de force, and again written with crystal clarityand accessibility."
Regent's Reviews

"Kerr is astonishingly well read, and, if you want to learnsomething about how differently Aquinas has been understood on awide range of issues, After Aquinas is an excellent place tostart. Indeed, there is nothing in print to compare with it."
Theology Today

"Aquinas is a boom subject and Fr Kerr uses decades of stuy toput him in perspective; but he has not lost the refreshingenthusiasm that he felt in his youth for the ontology of thebrilliant old thinker."
Spectator

".by focusing on the relationship between Thomas's thoughtand aome of the distinctive issues of modern theology, he is ableto both correct widespread misreadings of Thomas, and to show theongoing power and ecumenical relevance of his theology."
Churchman

"The beginner will imbide not just real knowledge of Aquinasfrom this book, but a vibrant Catholic and Dominican culture. Themore advanced reader will find dazzling insight upon which toponder, as well as intriguing pointers to a richer futuresynthesis.
Catherine Pickstock, Emmanuel College Cambridge

"After Aquinas is an invaluable resource for evaluatingthe rival ways that Aquinas has been used in recentscholarship."
Scottish Journal of Theology
