First published thirty years ago and long out of print, "Aquinas: God and Action" appears here for the first time in paperback. This classic volume by eminent philosopher and theologian David Burrell argues that Aquinas' god is not the god of Greek metaphysics, but the God of Christian revelation who is both being and activity. Aquinas' plan in the Summa Theologiae, according to Burrell, is to instruct humans how to find eternal happiness through acts of knowing and loving. Featuring a new preface by the author, this edition will be welcomed by philosophers and theologians alike.
David B. Burrell, C.S.C. is a priest of the Congregation of the Holy Cross. He holds the Hesburgh Chair of Theology and Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame and teaches at the Tantur Ecumenical Institute in Jerusalem.
