St Thomas Aquinas
AUTHOR: G K Chesterton
This book makes no pretence to be anything but a sketch of a great historical character who ought to be more popular. It is an introduction to both Thomas the man and the significance of his work for his own time and ours.
Eight hundred or so years ago, two great saints pointed to two great ways to the heart of the Church's mission. St Francis of Assisi showed a new way of living the faith, which St Thomas Aquinas showed a new way of knowing the faith. Each man met many obstacles in his own time and meets even more in ours.
