Overview
In one volume-a new translation of St. Thomas Aquinas's masterwork, in refreshingly non-technical modern English with modern chapter and paragraph format.

Now, for the first time, the whole of Thomas's work is available in a concisely distilled translation, a form that will appeal both to professional students of theology and to interested general readers.

"A remarkable achievement characterized by three qualities: concision (The Summa is here reduced to about one-sixth of its original length), the avoidance as far as possible of technical language, and modern format (chapters and sections in place of the cumbersome and space-consuming quaestio format actually used by Aquinas)....McDermott, fortunately, has the gift of language; his translation, an uncanny combination of innovative felicitousness and of accuracy, will make even Thomistic oldtimers read the Summa in a fresh and creative way.... This is an excellent and outstanding piece of work, greatly and wholeheartedly recommended as the best way in English to begin and maintain an interest in and respect for the mature thought of Thomas Aquinas" (Adris Newsletter, Fordham University).
