For $1.99, you can also get A Shorter Summa: The Most Essential Philosophical Passages of St. Thomas Aquinas’ Summa Theologica.

This little book is designed for beginners, either for classroom use or individually. It contains the most famous and influential passages of St. Thomas’ philosophy with copious aids to understanding them.

Kreeft selected those passages from Aquinas that are intrinsically important, non-technical enough to be intelligible to modern readers, and most likely to be used in a class or by an independent reader.
