King’s College is offering a 4-lesson class on ‘Summa Theologica.’

Always wished you had a better grasp of Summa Theologica, the great philosopher and Christian apologist Thomas Aquinas’s influential work on the existence of God? At about 3,500 pages long, taking the plunge into the Summa is perhaps a bit daunting, to say the least.

Now, thanks to King’s College’s new free, self-paced online course, you don’t have to go it alone (and you need not read all 3,500 pages!). In four lessons, renowned Boston College philosophy professor Dr. Peter Kreeft leads you through Aquinas in his course “A Sample of the Key Concepts from Thomas Aquinas.”

In his signature engaging style, Kreeft uses the primary text to guide students to an understanding of Aquinas’ writing on the existence of God, the relationship of reason and faith, and the connection between God’s will and human will.

Added bonus: you can flex your newly acquired apologist’s muscles and engage with other would-be Thomists taking the course on an online discussion board.
