    One thought on “After Aquinas

    1. Cameron E.

      A very good book by Fr Fergus Kerr OP, especially helping one to understand how Thomas came to be so misunderstood in the form of certain 'Thomistic' traditions. The God of St Thomas Aquinas is far from this static, deistic conception as popularly held - in fact, quite the opposite. If anything, St Thomas veers closer to conceptualising God as an event than an entityough of course he doesn't. Next time I read Thomas, I can read him in the light of the Patristic thought he wrote in consideration [...]

      In exploring the many varieties of Thomism, Fergus Kerr hints at a re-reading of St Thomas' thought. Instead of the stale, two-story view of St Thomas, Kerr offers a vision of Thomas that is rich and grace-oriented. He gives us a vision of ethics that posits man as a movement to God. And he gives us a God that is not the static entity of Aristotle, but the fiery dynamism of Exodus 3:14.A few thoughts:RE Anthropology: Kerr sees regenerate man as a divine spirit desiring face-to-face communion wit [...]

      This book accomplishes a daunting task quite well: it is both an introduction to Aquinas as well as to Thomism and contemporary interpretations of Thomas. The book does a better job in the latter category as Thomas' stances are framed by Kerr in terms of contemporary theological disputes: Kerr tells us not only about Transcendental Thomism versus Existential Thomism, but also how Thomas sheds light on issues raised by Barth, Heidegger, Jenson, and Pannenberg. I highly recommend this work for stu [...]

      This is a very valuable resource. It seeks to explain both the thought of Thomas as well as the history of interpretations of his thought, and it does so in an easy-to-read and brisk manner. Kerr doesn't nearly do justice to classic Protestant theology, nor the older Protestant Thomists, but the rest of the work is so good that I'm willing to largely overlook this flaw. The view of Thomas that Kerr finally presents is a balanced one that answers modern critics while remaining traditional.
