Acclaimed as the best book ever written on Aquinas, St. Thomas Aquinas outstanding profile introduces one of Christianity’s most important and influential thinkers. G.K. Chesterton chronicles the saint’s life, focusing on the man and the events that shaped him, rather than on theology. In a concise, witty, and eminently readable narrative, he illustrates the relevance of St. Thomas’ achievements to modern readers.Born into an aristocratic family, Thomas rejected a life of privilege to join a new order of preaching and teaching monks, the Dominicans. Chesterton compares Thomas’ views to those of another famous thirteenth-century figure, St. Francis of Assisi. He also explores the influence of Aristotelian philosophy on Thomas’ character, along with the effects of Parisian culture, society, and politics. The final chapter examines the impact of Thomas’ work on later religious thinkers, including Martin Luther.

This brief but vivid profile provides fascinating glimpses into the medieval scholastic movement, and it presents an excellent beginning to further explorations of St. Thomas Aquinas’ works.
