Aquinas’ approach to theology was guided by the desire to grow spiritually through theologizing. Desiring to underscore the Trinitarian character of the Christian life, Aquinas pays careful attention to the human being as created in the image of God, with Christ as the model to imitate.

The Trinity: An Introduction to Catholic Doctrine on the Triune God
Author: Gilles Emery
Publisher: The Catholic University of America Press
In this introduction to Catholic doctrine on the Trinity, Gilles Emery presents extensive research on the foundations of Trinitarian reflection. At its heart is a synthetic exposition of the persons of the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit in their divine being and mutual relations, and in their action for us.
Even though it is an introduction, it is not simply the retelling of an oft-told tale, rather it is imaginative, insightful, and nuanced. . . . Emery’s treatment of the doctrine of the Trinity enhances the reader’s understanding of the Trinity and so strengthens and deepens his or her faith.
