12 Life Lessons from St. Thomas Aquinas
Sophia Institute Press, 293 pages
What can 21st-century Catholics learn from the Angelic Doctor? Quite a lot, as Kevin Vost explains in his insightful new book. Readers won’t have to wade through the Summa Theologica, as Vost breaks down a dozen timeless lessons from Thomas’ writings on topics including how to practice justice in an unjust society, how to hate sin but love the sinner, how to grow in virtue so as to become a saint, and the all-important question of the meaning of life. Overcoming some of the key deadly sins is also covered here. There’s a lot more Thomas offers in his many writings, but this volume provides a good practical start.
