If you don’t have a year to study the more than 3,000 pages St. Thomas wrote, then turn to The One-Minute Aquinas, the fast-paced book that provides busy readers with simple, readable explanations of the truths that, for 750 years now, have caused the works of St. Thomas to be sought out by kings and popes, scholars and saints, as well as by ordinary souls like you ? hungry to know God and to love him more and more. In this book’s lucid pages, author Kevin Vost gives you small, digestible portions of St. Thomas’s life-giving wisdom that you can enjoy one minute at a time. Tables and graphics will help you grasp and remember St. Thomas’s key ideas with a minimum of time and effort. Best of all, in The One-Minute Aquinas you’ll find quick, sure refutations of the countless relativistic, secular, and pseudoscientific ideas that are so influential in our culture today ? and so shallow, contradictory, and wrong.

|Review:||This book is a marvellous distillation of the complex writings contained in the Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas in understandable layman's language. It explores the age old questions regarding the mysteries of the Catholic Faith and proceeds to address them with the answers give by St. Thomas Aquinas. All we believe in and treasure as Catholics is shown to be logical, reasonable and true. It is an insightful read and served to further deepen my faith. I highly recommend it to all practical Catholics.|
