A Shorter Summa
A shortened version of Kreeft's much larger Summa of the Summa, which in turn was a shortened version of the Summa Theologica.

The Summa is certainly the greatest, most ambitious, most rational book of theology ever written. In it, there is also much philosophy, wh

Aquinas's Shorter Summa
Two years before he died, St. Thomas Aquinas probably the greatest teacher the Church has ever known was asked by his assistant, Brother Reginald, to write a simple summary of the Faith of the Catholic Church for those who lacked the time or the stamina to tackle his massive Summa Theologica.
