Thomas Aquinas is widely recognized as one of the greatest of all Christian thinkers, referred to by Pope Pius V as "the most brilliant light of the Church." The book is a clear and engaging introduction to Aquinas.Series editor Brian Davies reviews Aquinas' life from the point at which he joined the Dominicans through his tutelage under Albert the Great in Cologne to his death in the Cistercian Abbey of Fossanova. Through exploration of the key questions posed by Aquinas in his voluminous writings, such as "What is God like?" and "What should people do?", Davies surveys the thinker's many themes.
