Introduction to Aquinas

taught by Thomas McCuddy

Course description

Norman Geisler's works served to reintroduce Thomas Aquinas into evangelical philosophy and theology. Dr. Geisler's book "Should Old Aquinas Be Forgotten?" though a word play title, mixes no words in presenting a straight-forward, comprehensive, well-researched, and lucid account of Aquinas' thought from his major works. Abounding with quotations, this systematic presentation of Aquinas using his own words serves as an excellent introduction.

Participants will read the book, as well as listen to lectures Dr. Geisler gave on various topics related to Aquinas. Weekly group meeting will help unpack and contextualize the material. 

Meetings begin Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 8:30PM EST.
