The wisdom of Aquinas

aquinasIn his new book, Practical Theology: Spiritual Direction from Saint Thomas Aquinas (Ignatius Press, 2014), Boston College Professor of Philosophy Peter Kreeft brings together more than 350 useful, everyday insights from Aquinas’ masterpiece the Summa Theologiae and pairs them with his own commentary in order to answer the kinds of questions real people ask their spiritual directors. His practical, personal and livable advice is the fruit of his labors to apply the insights of Aquinas to his own quest for sanctity, happiness and union with God. Last month, Kreeft spoke with National Review about his book.  A reviewer for Catholic Lane called the book “spiritual reading of the highest order and a magnificent instance of inspired teaching, both on the part of St. Thomas and on the part of Peter Kreeft for making St. Thomas so accessible.” Kreeft is a renowned author of more than 70 books, including Back to Virtue, Because God Is Real, Jacob’s Ladder, You Can Understand the Bible, Angels and Demons, Heaven: The Heart’s Deepest Longing, and Summa of the Summa.
