Christ and Spirituality in St. Thomas Aquinas: A New Book by Fr. Torrell

Thanks to The Catholic University of America Press and translator, Fr. Bernhard Blankenhorn, O.P., a fascinating new collection of essays by noted Aquinas scholar, Fr. Jean-Pierre Torrell, O.P., is now available in English.  This is the second volume in the new Thomistic Ressourcement Series.

The essays in the volume treat diverse aspects of Aquinas’ theology, including: theology and sanctity, friendship, charity, prayer and Aquinas’ spirituality, configuration to Christ, the priesthood, and preaching.  Throughout the text Fr. Torrell carefully underscores the deep and pervasive union of faith, spirituality, and scientific rigor in Aquinas’ approach to theology.
