Justice and Charity: An Introduction to Aquinas’s Moral, Economic, and Political Thought

Michael P. Krom

Baker Academic

This book introduces Thomas Aquinas’s moral, economic, and political thought, differentiating between philosophy (justice) and theology (charity) within each of the three branches of Aquinas’s theory of human living. It shows how Aquinas’s thought offers an integrated vision for Christian participation in the world, equipping readers to apply their faith to the complex moral, economic, and political problems of contemporary society. Written in an accessible style by an experienced educator, the book is well-suited for use in a variety of undergraduate courses and provides a foundation for understanding Catholic social teaching.

Virtue and Grace in the Theology of Thomas Aquinas 

Justin M. Anderson

Cambridge University Press

Throughout his writings, Thomas Aquinas exhibited a remarkable stability of thought. However, in some areas such as his theology of grace, his thought underwent titanic developments. In this book, Justin M. Anderson traces both those developments in grace and their causes. After introducing the various meanings of virtue Aquinas utilized, including ‘virtue in its fullest sense’ and various forms of ‘qualified virtue’, he explores the historical context that conditioned that account. Through a close analysis of his writings, Anderson unearths Aquinas’s own discoveries and analyses that would propel his understanding of human experience, divine action, and supernatural grace in new directions. In the end, we discover an account of virtue that is inextricably linked to his developed understanding of sin, grace and divine action in human life. As such, Anderson challenges the received understanding of Aquinas’s account of virtue, as well as his relationship to contemporary virtue ethics.

  1. I think it would be good to have a section that deals with publications beyond North America, like a global Christianity. Theologising done in other parts of the world can enrich the West, for example Africa and Asia.
    Thank you.
