Editorial Reviews

“Renick’s book is a clear, concise, witty introduction to Aquinas, designed to help students and general readers appreciate St. Thomas’ historical impact. Aquinas for Armchair Theologians will help readers who are completely unfamiliar with Aquinas’ thought begin the process of coming to terms with it.” Jeffrey Stout, professor of religion, Princeton University
