Thomas Aquinas

Thomas Aquinas is one of the most important theologians in the history of Christian theology. He was especially known for his intellectual synthesis of biblical faith and Aristotelian reason. In our text, Robert Barron shows how Thomas was also a master of the spiritual life, so that the goal of his theology was not just to understand sacred doctrine more clearly but also to lead his reader to a deeper love and understanding of God.In a few sentences, explain how Robert Barron understands ONE of Thomas’ five ways as the work of a spiritual master who uses Aristotelian reason to explain biblical faith and lead his reader to a deeper understanding of God. In other words, show how they enliven faith and are not just cold, philosophical proofs for God’s existence.
