This series offers a range of authoritative studies on people who have made an outstanding contribution to Christian thought and understanding. The series will range across the full spectrum of Christian thought to include Catholic and Protestant thinkers and to cover East and West, historical and contemporary figures. By and large, each volume will focus on a single "thinker", but occasionally the subject may be a movement or a school of thought.

Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) is widely recognized as one of the greatest of all Christian thinkers, referred to by Pope Pius V as "the most brilliant light of the Church". This book is a clear and engaging introduction to Aquinas.

Series editor Brian Davies reviews Aquinas's life from the point at which he joined the Dominicans through his tutelage under Albert the Great in Cologne to his death in the Cistercian Abbey of Fossanova. Through exploration of the key questions posed by Aquinas in his voluminous writings, such as "What is God like?" and "What should people do?", Davies surveys this thinker's major themes.
