The revival of interest in Aquinas has corresponded with a rise of interest in Aristotle, on whose philosophy Aquinas based his own. On Aquinas is a masterly work of clear and concise exposition. By the use of simple modern analogy, McCabe brings Aquinas’ thought to life and underlines the crucial influence of Aquinas on our own contemporary thought. Even those who are unfamiliar with Aquinas will find this book gripping. Published posthumously, this study is thoroughly rewarding and will increase McCabe’s reputation as one of Britain’s finest theologians of recent years.
