By Paul Gondreau
The Passions of Christ’s Soul in the Theology of St. Thomas Aquinas is an invaluable resource for theology students and scholars. In this pioneering and unparalleled study, Paul Gondreau breaks Thomistic scholarship’s silence on this particular aspect of the Angelic Doctor’s thought. Illuminating the sources of Aquinas’s doctrine on Christ’s passions and the place and implications of that doctrine within his overall Christology, Gondreau articulates how Aquinas shows the way to understand Christ’s experiences of suffering and sorrow, fear and anger, wonder and joy. Respecting the Thomistic course in Christology, Gondreau does not hesitate to point out Aquinas’s limits even as he offers an informed reading of Aquinas that emphatically establishes the originality and depth of analysis of the thought of the Master from Aquino.
“Nothing more wonderful can be considered than the divine achievement of true God, the Son of God, becoming true man.” ~ St. Thomas Aquinas
