Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The best book ever written on Saint Thomas. Nothing short of genius can account for such an achievement.” Étienne Gilson, philosopher and historian
“Derek Perkins narrates this scholarly examination of Thomas Aquinas in the way many college students wish lectures were delivered. His voice is clear and steady, and he varies his tone to fit the material and keep passages from sounding pedantic…Perkins carries the work nicely with his engaging voice. His English accent adds appropriate atmosphere without interfering with the listening for Americans.” AudioFile
