Title: VISION BOOKS: SAINT THOMAS AQUINAS AND THE PREACHING BEGGARS
The Vision Books for youth nine to fifteen years old are one of the most popular and well-written series of saints' lives ever produced for young people. The story of St. Thomas Aquinas is full of moving and dramatic scenes: the flaming destruction of Monte Cassino Abbey, the reception into the Dominican order of the quiet, determined young Thomas, the breath-taking escape from the dungeon tower, and the striking instances of the saint's eloquence and brilliance. Brendan Larnen, O.P. and Milton Lomask provide the exciting story of the man who wrote the masterful Summa Theologica, and who was the adviser to popes yet refused ecclesiastical honor. Thomas Aquinas, was a simple friar who shook the medieval world with his intellect. Illustrated. 159 pages.
