Inhaltsangabe: Let St. Thomas Aquinas teach you how to heal the anguish of our broken world. The Aquinas Prescription opens the door for you to a richer and more fully integrated spiritual and intellectual life than you’ve ever experienced — through the much-misunderstood thought and example of St. Thomas Aquinas. According to author Gerald Vann, only the wisdom of St. Thomas can heal the spiritual agony and barrenness of our broken modern age. Vann, the wise Dominican priest who wrote The Devil and How to Resist Him, maintains that even the most faithful Christians today can’t help but be tainted by the materialism, self-obsession, and plain rottenness of the surrounding culture. But The Aquinas Prescription offers you a way out. In chapters that include a brief, loving biography of Aquinas and explanations of how his thinking relates to the currents of his day and ours, Vann shows that if you want to know the answer to the riddle of life, if you want to achieve wisdom, if you want to be fully alive, you must learn from Aquinas how to unite the broken shards of modern life: rationalism and spirituality, action and mysticism. You need to follow the real teaching and personal example of St. Thomas in its balanced and integrated fullness. With the guidance of The Aquinas Prescription, you’ll be able more richly than ever to give glory to the Light that he so ably and lovingly illuminated. Among the surprising and useful insights of The Aquinas Prescription: contemplation and action: the little-known way St. Thomas united them — and you can, too; St. Thomas’s thought: is it dated? How he made sure that it never would be; law and grace: how St. Thomas unites them but the modern world divides them — to its peril; St. Thomas’s dynamic view of knowledge: not as a disconnected intellectual exercise, but as a form of life and of becoming more alive; the failure of Thomism: how St. Thomas’s great syntheses were lost among his followers; why the great medieval cities were revered for their citadels of study — while today’s cities are admired for the skyscrapers of hard commerce; the sure way (not the easy way) to happiness and joy: how St. Thomas blazed the trail; what the Roman Church can learn from the Eastern Churches (something St. Thomas knew!); how St. Thomas, with all-embracing faith, used reason to elucidate revelation; mysticism: how St. Thomas beautifully reveals that its true roots lie in a rational investigation of the things of faith; how St. Thomas’s lack of personal vanity impressed even his bitterest opponents; scholastic philosophy: how St. Thomas streamlined, simplified, and rejuvenated it, making it a more useful tool to find the truth; plus much more that will give you Aquinas’s key to healing the anguish of modern society!
