The revival of interest in Aquinas has run simultaneously with the rise of interest in Aristotle, on whose philosophy Aquinas based his own.On Aquinas is a masterly work of exposition written with breathtaking clarity. By the use of simple modern analogy Mccabe brings Aquinas`s thought to life and underlines the crucial influence of Aquinas on our own contemporary thought. It is rare to find a work of philosophical exposition which is exciting to read. Even those who are unfamiliar with Aquinas will find this book gripping. Published posthumously, this study is thoroughly rewarding and will increase McCabe's reputation as one of Britain's finest theologians of recent years.

A study of the sacraments and what it means to live in the Church and the Church's world. It explores how human beings can reach real unity with one another and the world around them through the Spirit of Christ.
The revival of interest in Aquinas has run simultaneously with the rise of interest in Aristotle, on whose philosophy Aquinas based his own. This work brings Aquinas' thought to life and underlines the influence of Aquinas on our contemporary thought.
As God is the highest good and is the benevolent creator of all, how can he be the cause of evil? How can we say Evil is caused by a defective agent and not by God? An added theological complication is the penalty for God's benevolent creation; namely that there is corruption in all things. This title tackles the problem of Evil.
