Dominican Fr. Brendan Larnen and children's author Milton Lomask
present the latest in the Vision Books series of saints' lives for
youth. The story of St. Thomas Aquinas is one full of moving and
dramatic scenes: the flaming destruction of Monte Cassino Abbey, the
reception into the Dominican order of the quiet, determined young
Thomas, the breath-taking escape from the donjon tower, and the
striking instances of the saint's eloquence and brilliance.
In this 26th
volume of the acclaimed Vision Books series of saints lives, children
from ages 9 to 15 will enjoy the exciting story of the man who wrote
the masterful Summa Theologica, the advisor to popes who refused
ecclesiastical honor, the simple friar who shook the medieval world
with his intellect.
