Intelligent, wealthy, and well-connected, Thomas left it all behind to become a missionary of Gods truth, joining the newly formed Dominicans. This 35th volume in the Encounter the Saints series will introduce children ages 912 to the struggles and victories in the life of the brilliant Saint Thomas Aquinas.
With great humility, he taught university scholars and preached in town squares to anyone who would listen. Saint Thomas greatly influenced Church thinking. His writings, including his famous Summa Theologica, are still used today in theology and philosophy classes throughout the world. Following Saint Thomas Aquinas example, children will be inspired to share their own gifts with others in simplicity of heart and mind.
