Norman L. Geisler reintroduces evangelicals to the man they "forgot,” clarifying Aquinas' teachings about the nature of God, Scripture, faith, reason, and other key issues of apologetics and ethics. Aquinas, the author argues, "is a more articulate defender of the faith than anyone in our midst.”
Roman Catholic Aquinas scholar Robert N. Campbell observes that Geisler "makes a good case for his message that the writings of Aquinas can be of great value to today's Protestant and Roman Catholic philosophers and theologians.”
"The book gives an understandable presentation of many of Aquinas' major contributions and shows how they are relevant, at times even crucial, to contemporary discussion,” adds Winfried Corduan of Taylor University. "In the process, Geisler strikes a credible blow against the current unfounded prejudice toward St. Thomas in evangelical thought.”
