This concise introduction to the essential wisdom of St. Thomas makes his philosophy and his theology equally concrete and accessible, illuminating the relationship between them in the light of an embracing vision of Christianity.

Francis Selman provides a fresh and lucid account of St. Thomas’ writings on the main topics of the Christian faith: the Trinity, Christ, grace, the sacraments, and the moral life. At the same time, he explains the philosophy of St. Thomas in clear language, bringing out the intertwined themes of existence and truth in a way that shows it to be of continuing interest for modern philosophy and natural science. St. Thomas’ theology is shown to lead to prayer, culminating in contemplation or the beholding of truth, and ultimately to the blessed life of happiness, based on the virtues of faith, hope and charity.

In a period which lacks a coherent world-view, Selman demonstrates how Aquinas can help us to regain a sense of the world as a unity.
