Thomas Aquinas: Spiritual Master

by Bishop Robert BarronAugust 06, 1996
Length: 187
Publisher: The Crossroad Publishing Company
Publish Date: August 1996



In this book, a young, contemporary theologian examines the life and work of Catholicism's greatest theologian.   Bishop Robert Barron shares with the reader not only the deep spirituality within Aquinas' theological writings, such as the arguments for God’s existence, but also Aquinas' little known spiritual writings on prayer and other topics.   Throughout the book, he makes Aquinas’ teachings accessible and applicable to our daily lives.

“Father Barron does a beautiful job of making the writings of Aquinas come alive for today.”
--The Catechist’s Connection

“Barron leads the reader beyond the technical, theological language to the spiritual experience underpinning the writing.”
--Review for the Religious 

“St. Thomas transformed Father Barron's life when he was 13.  Father Barron's book on St. Thomas (my first of his books) transformed my life (at 79 years) when I read it on retreat.  I cannot express my gratitude to him for showing me God in a whole new way and helping me fall in love - a lifelong Catholic seeing with new eyes and living new ways.  Thank you St. Thomas and Fr. Barron!”
-- Joan Galbrairth (Pleasant Hill, MO)
