Thomas Aquinas was one of the most influential thinkers in the history of Christianity and in western civilization. Yet his theological views are complex and presume acquaintance with technical philosophical language. Now Timothy 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. Timothy M. Renick is Associate Professor and Director of Religious Studies at Georgia State University. He was awarded the University System of Georgia Board of Regents' Teaching Excellence Award in October 2002.
