It bridges the gap between scriptural and metaphysical approaches to biblical narratives. Levering retrieves Aquinas's understanding of theology as contemplative wisdom and structures his work around Aquinas's treatise on the triune God in his 'Summa Theologiae.' The author argues that intellectual contemplation is part of a broader spiritual journey towards a better understanding of God. Scripture and Metaphysics contributes to the current resurgence of Thomistic theology in both Protestant and Catholic circles.
