Considered by many to be the best book ever written about St. Thomas Aquinas, The Dumb Ox is the classic portrait of the Angelic Doctor, the greatest of medieval philosophers, by G.K. Chesterton, one of the greatest of modern religious writers. But besides being merely the best book ever written about St. Thomas, Chesterton's lively tome has the virtue of being the most reader-friendly: "To the question 'Is there anything?' St. Thomas begins by answering 'Yes'; if he began by answering 'No', it would not be the beginning, but the end. That is what some of us call common sense. Chesterton's brilliant sketch of the life and thought of Thomas Aquinas is as relevant today as when it was first published in 1933.
