The masterpiece of St. Thomas - the Summa Theologica - is the sum total of all theological knowledge of God and man. It is divided into three parts which deal with God, Man, and the God-Man. The original version consists of 38 tracts, 631 questions, about 3,000 articles, 10,000 objections and their answers.. This simplified pocket edition, The Way of Life, attempts to put the teachings of St. Thomas into the hands of the everyday lay person.
Part I is the work of the noted Thomist, Walter Farrell, O.P., who died shortly after its completion. Parts II and III were written by Martin J. Healy, Professor of Dogmatic Theology, at the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception, Huntington, N,Y. At the back of this edition is an Outline of teachings and an Index.

Saint Thomas Aquinass Summa Theologica is one of the most influential and significant works in the history of the world, but because of its breadth and scope it is generally considered to be almost inaccessible to most readers. Until now.
In My Way of Life Fathers Walter Farrell and Martin J. Healy champion a brilliant summation of the Thomistic doctrines that offers the reader an encounter with wisdom and the use of that wisdom in understanding and knowing our Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ.
My Way of Life presents small, concise portions of the Summa in a manageable format. This work will allow the reader to consider some of the highest thoughts of one of historys greatest minds and apply them to the modern world, including:
• The Oneness of God
• The nature of Angels (p. 63)
• The hierarchy of angels, demons, and humans (p. 121)
• Mans disposition to pursue happiness
• The Divine Life in man
• The Incarnation Jesus and its ramifications (p. 443)
• The Last Things (Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell)
With My Way of Life the timelessness of the Summa is now accessible to all. In a world that seems to simultaneously advance in some areas and regress in others, the Summa Theologica powerfully reminds the reader that by definition, the true, and the good, and the beautiful never change.
