Format: Paperback
Thomas Aquinas has written a masterwork. Using the method of looking at the objections to a subject, then looking at the arguments for it, he comes up with the answer to many difficult theological and philosophical questions. He discusses who God is, the nature of man and his place in the universe, the signs of the hebrews concerning the end of days, the nature of the soul, what happens to the universe after Christs second coming, and a wealth of fascinating and intresting insights in the christian religion. The book is dense with information just waiting to be mined. I wish I could give it more than a thousand stars. It is brilliant. Thomas is a true scholar and a great mind. The set is somewhat expensive, but more than worth it!

Format: Paperback
I am not Roman Catholic, but a memebr of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Despite any denominational differences I may have, I am awed by this book. Considering Aquinas had no computers, no electricity, and no spell-check, he managed to write a lengthy bok that would embarress most Ph.D's with an army of research assistants, expense accounts, and unlimited acess to LEXIS-NEXUS. Indeed, I belive much criticism of Aquinas comes from ignorance, or a deep-seated admiration and jealousy.
This is a standard work of Roman Catholic dogman and philosophical brainwork. It is a sumation of Catholic theology, systematized and organized. Aquinas covers several thousand questions relating to Catholic theology and philosophy, provides sharp questions and sound answers to objections. One of the questions gives a thumb-print of his mind: "Could [God] made the past not to have been?" (ST I-I.25.4) And Gov. Jesse Ventura said that religious people are weak-minded! By the way, Aquinas says no, since that would imply a contradiction, which is outsie of God's power.
This book and translation also has the "nihil obstant" and "imprimature," whic is latin for "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval." This translation has passed the Catholic censoring board and can be considered authoriative.
The only drawback is it's bulk--and therefore it is a rather awkward book to use. The internal organization helps to overcome this deficit, but a six volume with a thorough index would help. Peter Kreeft has a streamiled version of this book called "A Summa of the Summa," and an even slimmer volume called "A Shorter Summa," which is a summa of "A Summa of the Summa." These smaller books should hep you navigat the large book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The buyer needs to be aware of two things that are not clear in the description. First, this is version covers only Questions 75-102 of volume 1 of the Summa. There are five volumes total, so this is but a fraction, not the whole thing. Second, this is a digitized copy (a scanned copy that is bound) and so has many flaws, such as pencil marks and few side notations. The font and type is not to modern expectations. One advantage of the copy is that it is blown up some in comparison to the original, and so is much easier to read.

This being said, the translation is generally considered of a high quality. The binding is not as high quality as I would like, but then the price is good.

St.Thomas Aquinas has always been a very solid and firm foundation for the Church. I have always loved this Saint from the very first days of becoming a Roman Catholic. I am amazed at the excellence of this work and constantly refer to this work for any of my own personal questions I may have about God. This is an awesome set to own ! I highly recommend to purchase your own set of the Summa. Thanks to God for giving us this wonderful Saint ...........the Great St. Thomas Aquinas.
