[Hardcover] Expounding St. Thomas's teaching on God in the first part of the Summa, Father Garrigou-Lagrange not only discusses the attributes of the one God who revealed Himself to Moses, but treats... More > also of the very basis for this discussion in the first place—the nature of sacra doctrina (“holy teaching” or “sacred doctrine”) and the pursuit of theology as a “science” (a body of knowledge) that has God Himself for its object and ultimate goal. To comment, therefore, on the first part of the Summa is to comment not only on God but also on the theological pursuit to which St. Thomas gave himself—a pursuit that has as its goal the beatific vision of God. In discussing the place of St. Thomas amidst patristic, medieval, and modern theologians, Garrigou-Lagrange argues in behalf both of the sanctifying end of theology and the synthetic genius of St. Thomas who, he says, summed up the preceding tradition and left a deposit of reflection on God that can scarcely be surpassed.< Less

[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.
