9780060629144: Sheer Joy : Conversations with Thomas Aquinas on Creation Spirituality

This re-evaluation of the spirituality of Thomas Aquinas is in the form of the author "interviewing" Aquinas and letting Aquinas answer in his own words. Fox has translated much of Aquinas' heretofore unknown Biblical commentaries, which was as much grounded in the Scripture as in the philosophical traditions of his day. By the author of "Creation Spirituality".

From Library Journal:

Fox, a controversial Dominican priest and author of Creation Spirituality ( LJ 5/1/91), offers this compendium of the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas. Through a series of four "conversations," he translates the context of Aquinas's spiritual theology into popular language. The dialogs center on the four paths within creation spirituality: Via Positiva (awe and wonderment), Via Negativa (silence and darkness), Via Creativa (imagination and creativity), and Via Transformativa (compassion). Fox uses the writings of Aquinas to provide a dialog that brings forth a positive guide to spiritual growth. Instead of the "fire and brimstone" approach to salvation, the reader is exposed to the path of cosmological spirituality. Recommended for large public and academic libraries.
