Just this weekend at Ave Maria University, I caught my first printed glimpse of a book project I’m involved in called Thomas Aquinas, Biblical Theologian. Hot off the press from Emmaus Academic, it contains an essay of mine entitled “Unless You Believe, You Will Not Understand: Biblical Faith according to Thomas Aquinas and Benedict XVI.” A variation upon this essay is also contained in my book The Experiment of Faith.
The rationale behind this volume is that, while many people are familiar with his Summa Theologiae, fewer are aware that St. Thomas’s primary work was that of biblical theologian. My essay, like the others in the book, thus explores some of Aquinas’s most important contributions within his often-overlooked biblical commentaries and their importance for the ongoing work of Scripture study today. You can pick up a copy of Thomas Aquinas, Biblical Theologian on Amazon here.
