Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thomas Aquinas Summa Theologiae is his most important contribution to Christian theology and one of the main sources for his philosophy. This volume offers most of the Summas first 26 questions, including all of those on the existence and nature of God. Based on the 1960 Blackfriars translation, this version has been extensively revised and also includes an introduction which places the questions in their philosophical and historical context. The result is an accessible and up-to-date edition of Aquinas thought on the nature and existence of God.

Book News Annotation:

Davies (Fordham U.) provides the translation and Leftow (U. of Oxford) the introduction and essay of further reading of theologian Thomas Aquinas' (1224-74) treatise on the existence and nature of God, which remains influential even today. They worked together on the editorial footnotes. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
