Aquinas for Armchair Theologians | [Timothy M. Renick]

Aquinas for Armchair Theologians

Thomas Aquinas was one of the most influential thinkers in the history of Christianity and in Western Civilization. Yet his theological views can seem complex and presume acquaintance with technical philosophical language. Now Renick has produced an attractive and accessible account of Aquinas's thought and life that will make his views clear to non-specialists.

Publisher's Summary

Thomas Aquinas was one of the most influential thinkers in the history of Christianity and in Western Civilization. Yet his theological views can seem complex and presume acquaintance with technical philosophical language. Now Renick has produced an attractive and accessible account of Aquinas's thought and life that will make his views clear to non-specialists.

The topics dealt with include God, angels, evil, metaphysics, morality, sex, war, abortion and politics. This is an engaging and illuminating introduction to an all-important theologian.

    Story
    "I think Timothy is very onesidely biased."
    If you could sum up Aquinas for Armchair Theologians in three words, what would they be?

    opinionated, one-sided, and false


    What could Timothy M. Renick have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He could have not followed the rabbit trail that he liked and stuck to more facts, and not taken the facts to the rabbit trails he wanted.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    There were good facts about what Thomas did, but the conclusions that were brought out from them were off base in their assumptions.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    read it if you are not looking for real Christian insight.
