Summa Theologica Part I (Prima Pars)

By: Thomas Aquinas Narrated by: Martyn Swain Length: 52 hrs and 57 mins Unabridged

The Summa Theologica, by Thomas Aquinas, is a fundamental text in Catholic doctrine, a compendium of theology that has been studied and debated since its first publication in the 13th century. Furthermore, it has been widely regarded as one of the classics of Western philosophy, not least because, perhaps for the first time in such a systematic manner, it set out to consider the views of non-Christian figures such as Aristotle, Boethius, Muslim writers including Averroes (Ibn Rushd) and Avicenna (Ibn Sina) and the Sephardic Jewish scholar Maimonides.

4.5 out of 5 stars 48

Throughout much of the 19th century, both secular and Catholic leaders assumed that the Church and the modern world were locked in a battle to the death. The triumph of modernity would not only finish the Church as a consequential player in world history; it would also lead to the death of religious conviction. But today, the Catholic Church is far more vital and consequential than it was 150 years ago.

The City of God is one of the most important works of Christian history and philosophy ever written. The writings of St. Augustine are as intriguing to the casual reader as it is to Christian researchers. St. Augustine"s work provides insight into Western thought and the development of Western civilizations. The City of God provides the reader with an artful contrast between earthy cities and those in heaven as a representation of the eternal struggle between good and evil. The City of God was originally penned in the early 5th century as a response to the prevalent belief that Christianity was to blame for the fall of Rome. St. Augustine is known as one of the most influential Fathers of the Catholic Church. Born November 13, 354, Augustine would eventually be recognized as a Saint by the Catholic Church, the Eastern Christian Church, and the Anglican Communion.

In The Bible Is a Catholic Book, Jimmy Akin shows how the Bible cannot exist apart from the church. In its origins and its formulation, in the truths it contains, in its careful preservation over the centuries, and in the prayerful study and elucidation of its mysteries, Scripture is inseparable from Catholicism. This is fitting, since both come from God for our salvation. If you"re a Catholic who sometimes gets intimidated by the Bible, The Bible Is a Catholic Book will help you better understand and take pride in this gift that God gave the world through the church.

In this precious short work, Uniformity with God"s Will, St. Alphonsus Liguori explains the importance of conforming one’s will to God’s and how to do so; how God is glorified by our resignation to his will even more than by our acts; how to gain peace of mind and serenity by trusting in God, accepting what he wills for our lives, and following his commands.

Marcellino D"Ambrosio dusts off what might have been just dry theology to bring you the exciting stories of great heroes such as Ambrose, Augustine, Basil, Athanasius, John Chrysostom, and Jerome. These brilliant, embattled, and sometimes eccentric men defined the biblical canon, hammered out the Creed, and gave us our understanding of sacraments and salvation. It is they who preserved the rich legacy of the early Church for us.

Summa Theologica consists of three main parts. The second part is divided two, and this recording presents Prima Secundae - Part I of Part II. Taken in its entirety, Summa Theologica forms an essential contribution to the canon of Catholic doctrine and was written in the last decade of his life by Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), an Italian-born Dominican friar. Although he died before completing it, the body of thought it contains is a continuing influence to the education and guidance of students of theology in the main Christian traditions.

Chesterton writes, "I wish to set forth my faith as particularly answering this double spiritual need, the need for that mixture of the familiar and the unfamiliar which Christendom has rightly named romance."

In 2007, Joseph Ratzinger published his first book as Pope Benedict XVI in order “to make known the figure and message of Jesus”. Now, the Pope focuses exclusively on the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life as a child. The root of these stories is the experience of hope found in the birth of Jesus and the affirmations of surrender and service embodied in his parents, Joseph and Mary.

The Modern Scholar: The Philosophy of Thomas Aquinas

By: Prof. Peter Kreeft


Publisher"s Summary


Apologia Pro Vita Sua (A Defence Of His Life) by Cardinal Newman offers a marvellous insight into the mind of a devout Christian, a colossal figure of the nineteenth century. It is, moreover, one of the greatest spiritual autobiographies ever written in the English language, laying out the development of John Henry Newman"s religious opinions up to the year 1845 when he finally converted to Roman Catholicism.

It was Charles Kingsley"s withering and defamatory attack which prompted its writing, giving Newman "ten weeks of anxious work", as he pieced together the evolution of his beliefs. Newman"s beautiful prose has rightly been described as "regal", the scholarly arguments are crystal clear and the structure reassuringly chronological; his utter demolition of Kingsley"s accusations (especially that of untruthfulness) at the end of the Apologia is meticulous, inexorable and truly awe-inspiring. It is read by Greg Wagland.

newman"s intellectual and spiritual journey

Would you consider the audio edition of Apologia Pro Vita Sua to be better than the print version?

I have read the print version of the Apologia and also listened to the audio book. My conclusion is that the audio is superior because it brings out Newman"s flowing eloquence more clearly and his wit is more evident. These qualities are less noticeable in the printed version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course in this book, the main character is Newman, and his own introspective analysis makes the book intellectually engaging and fascinating as a story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The entire book is moving, but Newman"s final discovery of the principle of catholicity in relation to antiquity is the most fascinating.

Any additional comments?

Newman"s book articulates why he left Protestantism to become Catholic. He answers charges that his motives were dishonest or founded on ignorance, and he does so with brilliance. This is a classic in the English language as well as a top-notch work in apologetics. All Protestants (high or low church) ought to read it.
