Among the great services St. Thomas does in his writing is to show us how Christianity is truly a philosophy of Reason.

Aquinas's Shorter Summa: Saint Thomas's Own Concise Version of His Summa Theologica Paperback – December 1, 2001. by St. Thomas Aquinas (Author). Two years before he died, St. Thomas Aquinas probably the greatest teacher the Church has ever known was asked by his assistant, Brother Reginald, to write a simple summary of the Faith of the Catholic Church for those who lacked the time or the stamina to tackle his massive Summa Theologica. Among the great services St.

"The Summa Theologica is the best-known work of Italian philosopher, scholar, and Dominican friar SAINT THOMAS AQUINAS (1225¿1274), widely considered the Catholic Church¿s greatest theologian. Famously consulted (immediately after the Bible) on religious questions at the Council of Trent, Aquinas¿s masterpiece has been considered a summary of official Church philosophy ever since. Aquinas considers approximately 10,000 questions on Church doctrine covering the roles and nature of God, man, and Jesus, then lays out objections to Church teachings and systematically confronts each, using Biblical verses, theologians, and philosophers to bolster his arguments. In Volume I, Aquinas addresses: ¿ the existence and perfection of God ¿ the justice and mercy of God ¿ predestination ¿ the cause of evil ¿ the union of body and soul ¿ free will and fate ¿ and much more. This massive work of scholarship, spanning five volumes, addresses just about every possible query or argument that any believer or atheist could have, and remains essential, more than seven hundred years after it was written, for clergy, religious historians, and serious students of Catholic thought."

This is a review of the HARDCOVER edition of ''SUMMA THEOLOGICA, Volume 1 (Part I)'' printed by Cosimo (ISBN = 9781602065543). This book is a reprint (yes, like a photocopy) in which St. Thomas's text is EXACTLY the same as Volume 1 of the Christian Classics 5-volume set of the SUMMA THEOLOGICA (ISBN = 9780870610646 for Volume 1 of that set). The SUMMA text is IDENTICAL. However, I would say the Cosimo version is better than the current Christian Classics version, which I also have:

[1] It has a CLOTH cover, not paper-over-cardboard like the Christian Classics edition. (Cosimo's cloth cover is dark blue and says SUMMA THEOLOGICA, VOLUME 1 on the spine).
[2] The margin in the center is bigger, allowing you to read more easily text that's towards the center.
[3] It has a dust jacket; the Christian Classics version does not.

The Christian Classics version has two points in its favor:
[A] It has a somewhat larger text (Cosimo obviously did some shrinking); the Cosimo text is about 95% of the size of the Christian Classics text.
[B] The Christian Classics version, unlike the Cosimo reprint, contains the "Encyclical of Leo XIII" titled "ON THE RESTORATION OF CHRISTIAN PHILOSOPHY." However, that Encyclical can easily be found online, for example at "Papal Encyclicals Online."

NEITHER the Cosimo version nor the Christian Classics version has sewn binding. Pages are simply glued in. This is less of a problem in the Cosimo version because of item [2] above.
This is the first volume in a 5 volume series of Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologica, put out by the Fathers of the English Dominican Province. This volume (volume I) is the entire "first part" of Aquinas' Summa. The first part of the Summa is concerned with first and foremost, God, then angels, creation, man, and divine government or providence. This is of course a masterpiece, one of the finest theological works, nay, one of finest works period. The so-called "5 ways," which are the proofs for God's existence often studied in philosophy courses across college campuses, are contained in this volume, but this is just a very small portion of the entire Summa. As is well known to seemingly everyone other than supercilious academics, the Summa is a beginning book on theology for those who already believe (as the first page indicates). Hence, reducing the Summa to the 5 ways misses the purpose of this fine work. After these proofs, Aquinas goes immediately into the attributes of God. He spends a significant amount of time on these, logically deducing them from the proofs for God's existence. Of particular importance in God are his intellect and Will. All of this takes up about 1/5 of the first part. Next Aquinas moves into the trinity. At this point, we have moved from natural religion to divine revelation. We cannot know that God is a trinity apart from him revealing it to us. Because the trinity is such a tricky concept, this section of the Summa is very difficult and challenging. There is much in here that I do not understand. But I am nevertheless convinced that probably the best man can do to understand the trinity is contained in the Summa, so it is worth revisiting these sections time and again.

Another very interesting section of the first part are Aquinas' questions on the angels. They are addressed in questions 50-64 and later revisited expounding upon their relationship to creation around question 100. We don't really think much about angels today. If we do believe in them, we think we can know very little about them and that they don't really do much. They aren't really an integral part of our modern theology. Yet Aquinas shows this to be an extremely faulty view of both theology, creation, and angels. Aquinas says many things about them and has them essential to our understanding of God, man, the order of nature and creation, etc.

This is the first part of the Summa. Other than the bible, there is no other book that is this great. It is absolutely essential.
This is a good sturdy paperback of arguably the greatest theological work of all time, next to the Bible. The print is just right, not too small and not too large. Also, the price is very affordable. An awesome read.
This is not for dummies!
I just received my copy in the mail today. I've been reading St. Thomas's Summa for a while from the library. When I decided to get my own, I was intimidated by either the price or editing questions of the various editions. Well, I am very pleased with the Cosimo edition. I was able to pick up volume 1 at a reasonable price.... and I'm sure to get the rest of the volumes over time. By the way, one of my other issues was that I wanted St. Thomas's original question and answer format (it really highlights his crystal clear thinking), which this edition has faithfully reproduced.
