£8.95


St Thomas Aquinas is universally recognized as one of the greatest philosophers and theologians who ever lived. The Summa Theologica is certainly the greatest, most ambitious, most rational book of theology ever written. In it, there is also much philosophy, which is selected, excerpted, arranged, introduced, and explained in footnotes here by popular Thomist teacher and writer, Peter Kreeft. This little book is designed for beginners, either for classroom use or individually. It is a shortened version of Kreeft's much larger Summa of the Summa, which in turn was a shortened version of the Summa Theologica. The reason for the double shortening is pretty obvious: the original runs some 4000 pages! (The Summa of the Summa was just over 500.)
