[Hardcover] Dominican Garrigou-Lagrange was one of the most prominent thomistic theologians of the early and mid-twentieth century. This volume is his attempt to summarize a philosophical and... More > theological worldview of thomism: Interpreting the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas and his successors, reality is seen in light of the central doctrines of the Trinity, of Creation, and of the Incarnation of the Son as Jesus Christ, in Whom humankind is drawn into the intimacy of the inner life of the Triune God. Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange argues on behalf of 24 thomistic theses, which he presents as a lens through which to view salvation, the Sacraments, the Mother of the Redeemer, and the spiritual life whereby the divine image is restored in the soul. This work, which has been out of print for decades, is of interest to any who wish to enhance their understanding of the recent Catholic theological tradition through an acquaintance with this major and often controversial figure.< Less

"Morality," writes Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange, "is the science of imitating God." In this exploration of St. Thomas's account of the moral life, he begins from the angelic doctor's... More > teaching on the human person as the image of God, and proceeds from there to describe how, by growth in virtue, one is conformed more and more to God's likeness. One becomes an imitator of God -- and in this, one finds one's "happiness" (beatitudo). Happiness, for the Christian tradition as expounded by St. Thomas, can be found here on earth by imitating God and so living now the life of heaven -- even amidst great pain and suffering. This is no easy happiness; but it is a happiness for which the human person was created, a happiness ultimately to be consummated in the beatific vision of the Lord, for which one shall have been prepared by imitating God in earthly life.< Less

[Hardcover] Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange turns to God the Trinity, who created the heavens and the earth, and who is the object of that contemplative vision of God to which all human beings are called and... More > which is their ultimate sanctification. In his characteristically-ordered style, Garrigou-Lagrange offers his interpretation of St. Thomas by expounding, explaining, and comparing the teaching of the angelic doctor to that of preceding and subsequent theologians. In particular, Garrigou-Lagrange depicts St. Thomas as fulfilling the foundation laid by St. Augustine: the persons must be treated in distinction but not in separation, for it is in their mutual relations that they are known as persons. He lays special emphasis also on the call of all humans to contemplative holiness. The exposition of the Trinity is a beginning of the journey of contemplation by which a man or woman enters the life of God to be reformed according to the likeness of the Trinity in whose image he or she was first created, body and soul.< Less
