Summa of the Summa

by St. Thomas Aquinas, edited and annotated by Peter Kreeft

I think Peter Kreeft is my go-to guy for dumbed down philosophy. I thoroughly enjoyed his condensed version of Blaise Pascal's Pensées and now I relied heavily on his footnotes to make sense of Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologica. (Well, this edited version of the Summa.) It was difficult reading because a) Aquinas is so much smarter than I, and b) the Summa is, in one sense, a reference book. For both of those same reasons, I'm putting this book on my shelf. It provides a myriad of thoughts to ponder.
