A companion to St. Thomas Aquinas’ Summa Theologica

St. Thomas Aquinas’ Summa is extraordinarily well suited to explaining the things of God, but it remains rather tough for many modern minds to understand.

This site attempts to explain the Summa in laymen’s terms.

According to the site: The Companion to the Summa is the most remarkable and successful attempt to put into modern English for a lay audience the essential arguments and insights of Aquinas’ greatest work, the Summa theologiae.

Fr. Farrell wrote almost sixty years ago, in the late 30’s and early 40’s, so we cannot fault him for the use of language that was acceptable at that time but might sound inappropriate today.

His colorful and imaginative paraphrase deserves to be taken off the shelf and reviewed by all serious seekers of theological truth.

In an age which looks upon the theology of the Catholic tradition as irrelevant to contemporary problems we leave it to your judgment to read and see if Aquinas, as mediated by the brilliant imagination of Fr. Walter Farrell, has a contribution to make.
