Discovering Aquinas by Aidan Nichols

Book Description

Thomas Aquinas is one of the great figures of church history, and his ideas continue to have a powerful effect on theologians and contemporary writers from very different backgrounds and traditions. In Discovering Aquinas Aidan Nichols offers a lively and authoritative introduction to the life, thought, and ongoing influence of this singular churchman. This book could not have come at a better time. After a lengthy period of declining interest in Aquinas, we are starting to see a Thomistic renaissance, including a renewed appreciation for the way Aquinas's work so brilliantly weaves together philosophy, theology, spirituality, revelation, and ethics. As Nichols writes, "It is because of the wonderfully integrated character of the wisdom of Thomas Aquinas -- integrated not only as supernatural with natural but also as thinking with love -- that the church in our day should not leave him as a fresco on a wall but find inspiration from his teaching and example." By means of writing as felicitous as it is insightful, Nichols chronicles the compelling facts of Aquinas's life, explores the major facets of his thought, establishes Aquinas's historical importance, and shows why many today are regarding him as a vital partner in current debates about the future of Christianity.

Books By Author Aidan Nichols

There is No Rose by Aidan Nichols There is No Rose, Paperback (February 2015)

Mary continues to be a source of theological interest and concern for Catholics and Protestants alike. Working through the biblical, patristic, and medieval sources, the author introduces readers to the robust scriptural and theological bases for the Church's celebration of Mary in its doctrine and liturgy.

Chalice of God by Aidan Nichols Chalice of God, Hardback (April 2012)

A Systematic Theology in Outline

Poet as Believer by Aidan Nichols Poet as Believer, Hardback (June 2011)

A comprehensive study of the theological significance of Paul Claudel, a poet frequently cited by literary-minded theologians in Europe and theologically-minded poets (such as von Balthasar, de Lubac and Eliot). It illuminates how Claudel's synthesis of many dimensions remains an important way of practising poetry in the Christian tradition.

G.K.Chesterton, Theologian by Aidan Nichols G.K.Chesterton, Theologian, Paperback (October 2009)

Best known as journalist, playwright, novelist and poet, G. K. Chesterton never thought of himself as a theologian. Nevertheless he could not help thinking theologically - even when he was making jokes - and his writings illuminate the profoundest religious themes.
