Let me be clear, this is a great book, but if you approached it knowing nothing about Thomas Aquinas and you don't really understand basic philosophical terms you probably won't enjoy this book. I would recommend perhaps listening to some on-line lectures about Aquinas first and once he has your interest then I would have a go at reading this as some parts can be quite challenging. It is very well written, well argued and good value for money and anyone who wants to advance their understanding of his philosophy won't be disappointed.

This book provides a great introduction to the philosophy and underlying metaphysics of Aquinas; demonstrating the continuing relevance of such thought today.
It contains one of the most lucid explanations of the famous Quinque Viae that I have ever read; refuting, also, commonly raised objections. Furthermore, there is an extensive list of further reading material for anyone looking to explore the philosophy of Aquinas in greater detail.
A perfect start for the complete novice.

This review is for: Aquinas: A Beginner's Guide (Beginners Guide (Oneworld)) (Paperback). This is the first review on UK amazon, but there are already 16 reviews on USA amazon, which I invite the reader to consult. All of these USA reviews of this Aquinas book, by their ratings (14 at 5-star and 2 at 4-star) and the text of their reviews, clearly share my own high opinion of the book.

This is a powerfully satisfying book (as is Feser's The Last Superstition - A Refutation of the New Atheism - see my review of the latter). The present book on the thirteenth-century Roman Catholic philosopher/theologian St Thomas Aquinas (known generally in the literature just as Thomas, or just as Aquinas) reinforces and amplifies the foundation for the arguments in the anti-New-Atheism book. Aquinas, in turn, builds heavily on the philosophy of Aristotle, the fourth-century-BC Greek philosopher (who by the way was the tutor of Alexander the Great). Aristotle's Four Causes (material, formal, efficient and final - Feser, pp. 16-23, but passim) are fundamental to Aquinas's own thinking.

The aim of Feser's Aquinas is the rehabilitation of the value of the Aristotelian/Thomistic philosophy. This rehabilitation is now a real growth industry, from what I can see of the books referred to in, for example, the bibliographies in Feser's own book (excellently up-to-date, mostly post-1990, even mostly post-2000, but including also older traditional classics like Garrigou-Lagrange).

From what I have been reading generally in the religion/science debate, books like those of Feser, Peter S Williams (A Sceptic's Guide to Atheism), John Lennox (God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?

Though I have no background in philosophy, I have gained much from reading this book. Mr Feser does his best to make Aquinas accessible to readers such as me. I recommend this book.

I found this a very good introduction to Thomistic philosophy and came to it having read The Face of God: The Gifford Lectures earlier this year.
