Childish jokes geared toward teenagers are dated
Wish someone had mentioned the childish humor the author has riddled throughout such a serious subject. I would not have purchased this audiobook had I known. Not the same quality as rest of armchair theologian series.
good overview of moral issues
while the author throws in a few riske jokes that show he has a bit of dirty humor, he also clarifies aquinas' idead pretty well and shows how powerfully aquinas influenced western thought
I think Timothy is very onesidely biased.
If you could sum up Aquinas for Armchair Theologians in three words, what would they be?
opinionated, one-sided, and false
What could Timothy M. Renick have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
He could have not followed the rabbit trail that he liked and stuck to more facts, and not taken the facts to the rabbit trails he wanted.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
There were good facts about what Thomas did, but the conclusions that were brought out from them were off base in their assumptions.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?
read it if you are not looking for real Christian insight.
