This text considers Aquinas the theologian, his profession as a teacher and preacher, his influence past and present, and theology as the subject of his thought and most of his writings. It examines the ""Summa theologiae"" in terms of its purpose and multiple structures. The centre piece of this volume is a tour through the themes of Christianity, as presented in the Summa, themes which range from Triune divine being, to the graced person as the image of God, and a member of the body of Christ, to the life beyond death. The perspective shifts between present and past, and O'Meara complements his study with an overview of six centuries of interpretation of Thomas's theology, revealing how through the centuries - various schools and disciples of Thomas have advocated his thought - but few have understood the structure and intent of his theology. It provides a contemporary exposition of Aquinas theology set against a backdrop of insight that reveals how it mirrored the creative directions of his personality and the times in which he lived, as well as the cultural and scientific forms and insights available to him. The author also discusses how some of Thomas's themes can contribute to theology in contemporary times, such as in psychology, art, and a theology of world religions.
