I am working my way through this book in a reading group. Very odd, given the general lucidity and clarity of the rest of the work. It isn't bad. For the most part, Stump's exposition of St. Thomas' thought is lucid and insightful. She leads the reader through the dense thickets of St. Thomas' thought, and is able to answer many of the traditional criticisms with grace and insight. Again, it's a decent introduction to Aquinas' thought, although readers might want to consult some other guides to get a better sense of historical context when reading this book.

Few philosophers or theologians exerted as much influence on the shape of medieval thought as Thomas Aquinas. He ranks amongst the most famous of the Western philosophers and was responsible for almost single-handedly bringing the philosophy of Aristotle into harmony with Christianity. He was also one of the first philosophers to argue that philosophy and theology could support each other.

In her volume on Aquinas for Routledge's "Arguments of the Philosophers" series, Eleonore Stumps aims at an interpretation of Aquinas that is historically faithful but also responsive to the concerns of contemporary philosophers.

The volume and depth of Aquinas' work resists easy synopsis. Nevertheless, an abridged description of his work may help us appreciate his philosophical skill in exploring God’s nature and defending Christian teaching.

Eleonore Stump is always a pleasure to listen to. After listening to her YouTube video of this lecture and being very impressed with her content and delivery, I had to have a paper copy. The size of the book is small and thin such that it is more like a hard-back booklet. But the quality of the paper and beauty of the printing process is so high that I found myself not wanting to highlight and mark this book up with notations like usual. It is a nice little treasure to hold in the hand and a pure delight to read. Listening to the lecture first makes the read even more pleasant. It is a delight if you have a philosophical bent and are theologically traditional on matters of divine immutability, eternality, and simplicity. Thomists and Neo-Thomists will enjoy it the most, no doubt. Even though I am not a Roman Catholic like Stump is, I still appreciate all she says here. It often seems like many evangelical Christians are losing their grip on this traditional view of God and drifting away from the classical view that Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, and John Calvin all had. The importance of this topic is easy to underestimate but, in the future, when most Christians may be talking about a God who is always changing, always being surprised by his creatures, and often being thwarted by his creation that is no longer under his control, we will wish we had listened to Stump's attempt to steer us away from that course. As always, I appreciate and respect Stump's ability to weave Bible stories into her philosophizing. Starting with the story of Jonah was very helpful--even brilliant.

Excellent, concise account and defense of the classic medieval understanding of God's nature, by one of today's leading philosophical theologians. Highly recommended.

Professor Stump is clearly a scholar with both depth and breadth of knowledge and understanding. The best short explanation of the nature of the eternity and simplicity of the divine I have ever read.
Felolv
As everything else she writes, this is brilliant.

I've read this surprisingly short excellent book twice because I'm writing an article about Dr. William Lane Craig's theistic personalism. So I know that Dr. Sump writes objections to divine simplicity, divine immutability, divine timelessness, and the idea that a divinely simple God can't respond to his creatures. She answers each objection and criticizes what Professors William Hasker and Alvin Plantinga write about classical theism.

For me, the best part of the book is Dr. Stump's admirably clear prose that I could only hope to write to explain the difficult subjects that she covers in the book. It'll help classical theists a lot, and it's a fine example of who a brilliant Thomistic philosopher thinks.

Though it's an easy read, read it slowly to learn everything you can. I recommend it highly.

This is a rich and rewarding read on philosophical theology. Any Thomist will appreciate Stump's insights and those unfamiliar with Aquinas will come to love him. The attributes of classic theism (immutability, eternity, and simplicity) do not conflict with Christian theism and this lecture keenly captures the important, and often missed, nuances from Aquinas to illustrate. Moreover, implications of Dr. Stump's findings are far-reaching and will serve to promote a robust philosophical theology.

Stump does a great job of presenting Aquinas' arguments clearly and in a way that links them to contemporary analytic philosophy.
I am working my way through this book in a reading group. It isn't bad. For the most part, Stump's exposition of St. Thomas' thought is lucid and insightful. She leads the reader through the dense thickets of St. Thomas' thought, and is able to answer many of the traditional criticisms with grace and insight.

However, there is a great deal of historical background and tradition that she omits, which might help shed light on certain obscure areas. For instance, in the chapter on divine simplicity, no mention is made of Pseudo-Dionysius, or the nearly 1000 years of apophatic theology that provide the foundation of St. Thomas' analysis of the simplicity of God. It seems odd to not mention this, to give some context to the discussion.

In other places, I am not sure from where she's getting her information -- for example, in the chapter on goodness, she makes reference to two questions in the Summa that she claims show that the precepts of fortitude have to do with fear of the Lord. However, when I looked up the questions, they made no such reference. Very odd, given the general lucidity and clarity of the rest of the work.

Again, it's a decent introduction to Aquinas' thought, although readers might want to consult some other guides to get a better sense of historical context when reading this book.
