25 popes insist you read this saint . . .

25 popes
consider him the Church's
preeminent theologian...

…because he saw truths about
God, our Faith, and the Christian
life which had never been seen before.

"His teachings could have come only from a
miraculous invention by God," said
Pope John XXII

Pope Leo XIII said his
teachings are "so vast they contain

all the wisdom that flows from the ancients."

But do you have time
to read the 3,000 pages
in his Summa Theologica?

I don't.

Can you comprehend the
abstract philosophical terms
he uses in On Being and Essence?

I can't.

Perhaps you, like me,
desire to be taught by such a
great philosopher as Thomas Aquinas,
but feel he is well beyond your reach.

Not anymore.

In these pages, veteran Catholic author Dr. Kevin Vost provides you with simple, readable explanations of St. Thomas's life-giving wisdom.

Karl Keating
says this book offers St. Thomas's arguments
in "bite-sized chunks that anyone can digest."

Peter Kreeft
says it will take you from
"confusion to clarity, from chaos to order."

In this book's lucid pages, you'll read small, digestible portions of St. Thomas's answers to questions such as . . . 

— Why do souls need the sacraments?

— Why didn't Jesus write the Bible himself?

— What are simple proofs of God's existence?

— What is heaven, and what is it not?

— Why did Jesus allow himself to be crucified?

— How can I grow quickly in virtue?

— Who are the angels and what are their powers?

— What is God's power and its limits?

— Why did God become man?

— Why did Jesus allow himself to be tempted?

And you'll learn countless, but quick, refutations to the relativistic and secular ideas that are so destructive in our culture today.

We're not all called to be intellectuals, but we are called to have an ever deeper understanding of the Faith.

As Fr. Dwight Longenecker said:
"For clarity choose Aquinas.  For clarity on Aquinas, choose The One-Minute Aquinas.

Discover, understand, and perfect the ten talents God gave you.
Beginning with the Gospel parable of the talents – which were buried in the ground by some, and multiplied by others – Kevin Vost here unearths a treasure for those who are struggling to live a life of Christian virtue: the ten particular talents that God has given each of us as our own . . . to bury . . . or to multiply for our own good and the good of the Kingdom.

Guided especially by St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the Church’s greatest teachers, as well as by Fathers of the Church and the example of many saints, Vost explains how you can discover, understand, and perfect each of your own ten talents.

In the process, you will develop your noble ability to reason, strengthen your faculties of mind, perfect your physical capacities for beauty of form and grace, nurture your ability to act angelically, and prepare yourself to live that life which is proper to a being made in the image of God.

Do you know what your ten talents are? Do you know what God wants you to do with your life? As He gave ten talents to each of the souls in the parable, so He has given ten particular talents to you.

Don’t ignore them any longer, or leave them buried.  Let Kevin Vost help you unearth them, and show you how to multiply them a hundredfold.
