Here in one volume is a new translation of St. Thomas Aquinas' masterwork in surprisingly non-technical modern English and paragraph format. For the first time the Summa, which synthesizes with immense scholarship and brilliance Aristotelian learning on the nature of the world and the human person with biblical teaching on God's loving purpose in creating them, is available in a concisely distilled translation and in a form that will appeal both to professional students and to interested general readers.

Aquinas, while studying at the University of Naples, joined the Dominican monastic order in 1244. Under St. Albert the Great he embarked on a life of teaching, preaching, and writing. He was formally canonized in 1323.Review:
The real meat of St. Thomas has been captured here with remarkable good judgement, and it is in fact a fresh stimulation experience to read Aquinas' doctrine on a given point gathered all together. --W. Norris Clarke, S.J., Fordham University
