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 Aquinass 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 Aquinass life, explores the major facets of his thought, establishes Aquinass historical importance, and shows why many today are regarding him as a vital partner in current debates about the future of Christianity.
