Ignatius Press A Summa of the Summa: Essential Passages of Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas is universally recognized as one of the greatest philosophers who ever lived. His writings combine the two fundamental ideals of philosophical writing: clarity and profundity. He is a master of metaphysics and technical terminology, yet so full of both theoretical and practical wisdom. He is the master of common sense. His major work, the Summa Theologica, is timeless, but particularly important today because of his synthesis of faith and reason, revelation and philosophy, and the Biblical and the classical Greco-Roman heritages.

This book combines selected essential philosophical passages from Thomas' Summa with footnotes and and explanations by Kreeft, a popular Thomist teacher and writer. Kreeft selected those passages from Thomas that are intrinsically important, non-techinical enough to be intelligible to modern readers, and most likely to be used in a class or by independent readers who want to study the Summa on their own. This book gives ready access to St. Thomas. Includes a glossary and an index.
