I found the very short chapters difficult to cope with. I had hoped the book would concentrate more on Aquinas's philosophy. I was disspointed because I respect the author and really the book was not what I hoped for. This doesn't mean it won't suit other readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction 11 Aug. 2009
By J. I. Fowler - Published on
Format: Paperback
Despite the number of introductions to Aquinas already available, Davies justifies the decision to produce one more by explicitly and repeatedly situating this book vis-a-vis some of the latest and best Aquinas scholarship at the time of the book's writing. Because of this, the book feels fresh and relevant--it is clearly Aquinas read in the light of early 21st-century academic and theological concerns.

'Aquinas' also benefits from Davies' incredibly lucid prose. Complex problems are presented as simply as possible, in an inviting, almost casual tone that brings to mind the intimate feel of a seminar, rather than a boring, impersonal lecture hall. The author's presentation of the subject matter should reassure and encourage those who might otherwise be intimidated by the writings of Aquinas and his explicators.

All-in-all, a compact, well-written, and thorough introduction to Aquinas.
