5.0 out of 5 stars "Fides quaerens intellectum", December 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Thomas Aquinas (Paperback)
This Book is for all, but especially and specifically for the student. Acquinas is seeking TRUTH. Human Reason is one of his tools. He starts from "ground level" i.e. fundamental principles of thinking. These are absolutely essential. If you haven't grasped these principles, Acquinas is not for you. Then the second tool: Faith. This really is a gift. But it is the dispenser of TRUTH as is Human REASON. Faith and Reason cannot contradict each other. Once you have tasted the sweetness of TRUTH, your life will be changed. Read this Book by A.G. Sertillanges and you will be encouraged and I hope inflamed with an insatiable thirst. The more you drink at the 'pool of TRUTH, the more you want to drink. Quenching the thirst only aggravates the thirst. Knowledge and Understanding are things of the Spirit. Read Acquinas and find out about the Human spirit, the Soul of Man. Sertillanges will lead you along the path. He knows what he is doing- he has tasted it all himself!! A word of warning. To search for Truth is one thing: to find and taste it quite another. Plough the rock- ...plough, ...plough...until it produces the crop.
Acquinas is the man to study and read!!! He will take you to the "fertile fields". Vale!
Ignotus.
