Reviews

"This is a superb introduction to the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. It is so lucidly and wittily written that even a Thomistic novice like this reviewer quickly lost most of his apprehension and became absorbed in the broad and fascinating survey offered by the author." --"Homiletic and Pastoral Review"
"McInerny has succeeded in making the thought of the Common Doctor accessible to the common man . . . the book is both clear and helpful. Thanks to Professor McInerny for having written this introduction to Saint Thomas's thought. It is the best available." "--The Canadian Catholic Review"
." . . Intended to be a 'first, informal look into the vast world of St. Thomas Aquinas.' Extensive bibliographical notes with additional suggested readings for each chapter are found at the end of the book. There is also a discussion of the various English translations available of Thomas's writings. If a church library needs an introduction to the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas, this is a good one to buy." --"Church and Synagogue Libraries"
