Aquinas 101: A Basic Introduction to the Thought of Thomas Aquinas

By Francis Selman, 219 pages, USD 15.95.

This solid introduction to one of the Doctors of the Church is accessible to anyone interested in a wide-ranging philosophy-oriented analysis of St. Thomas Aquinas, whose thought has been so important to nineteenth- and twentieth-century Catholicism.

It examines Aquinas on the sacraments, good and evil, creation, and the know ability of God. It also includes some biographical material and short introductions to Plato, Aristotle, and Saint Augustine, perhaps the three most important influences on Thomas.
