Peter Kreeft is an excellent lecturer and writer. His works on Christian Apologetics are well-known and respected. I had the pleasure of taking a class with him at Boston College.
His "A Shorter Summa" is a very good read for serious Christians. It delivers key passages of St. Thomas Aquinas' "Summa Theologiae" in a more manageable format for modern readers. Still hard reading, this book can yield precious insights when struggled over and read diligently.
A good introduction for Christians who don't have the time or the discipline to read the real thing.
