A delight to read. . . . One of the best introductions to Aquinas available. --Rik Van Nieuwenhove, Horizons Concise yet sweeping. --Katherine Wrisley Shelby, Religious Studies Review Deeply impressive. --Donald Wood, Religion and Theology Excellent and beautifully written. --Brian Davies, New Blackfriars McGinn's gift is his effort to bring some of the original warmth back into the Summa, first by making it the subject of a biography, reminding us that this great work has had a life of its own. --Alden Lee Bass, Englewood Review of Books Introductions to Aquinas abound, but few manage so succinctly to introduce the reader not only to the person and his work, but also to the enduring influence of Aquinas. --Alban McCoy, The Tablet Honorable Mention, 2015 Catholic Press Association Book Award, History Category
