Summary
  • "In this selection, arranged chronologically, Ralph McInerny brings together sermons, commentary responses to criticism and substantial extracts from one of Christianity's supreme masterpieces, the Summa theologiae.

This volume reveals both the development and sheer scope of his work."--BOOK JACKET.
