No theologian has had such a decisive impact on Catholic thought as Aquinas. The Summa Theologica, his brilliant 13th century synthesis of Christian thought, has become substantially the official teaching of the Catholic Church. This complete English edition was translated by the Fathers of the English Dominican Province. 3104 pages total, five softcovers from Christian Classics.
Creating a summary of all human knowledge may not be the sort of undertaking we begin in the twenty-first century, but there is still room on our bookshelves for a classic--Summa Theologica, one of the world's oldest and greatest masterpieces. St. Thomas Aquinas has much to teach us--most especially how to confront the classic questions that are still with us after centuries of thought.
