I greatly enjoyed and benefited from this series of talks on the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. Professor Stump is a wonderful teacher. In these lectures you will get an expert introduction to the philosophical theology of St. Thomas. The most delightful surprise, for me, was finding the lectures very spiritually helpful. I listened to several of the talks more than once because they were so insightful. I've listened to several sets of lectures on a variety of subjects and this is one of the very best. Having heard the whole thing through once I'm tempted just to listen again from the beginning.
