This exposition and defense of divine truth has two main parts: the consideration of that truth that faith professes and reason investigates, and the consideration of the truth that faith professes and reason is not competent to investigate. The exposition of truths accessible to natural reason occupies Aquinas in the first three books of the Summa. His method is to bring forward demonstrative and probable arguments, some of which are drawn from the philosophers, to convince the skeptic. In the fourth book of the Summa St. Thomas appeals to the authority of the Sacred Scripture for those divine truths that surpass the capacity of reason.
The present volume deals with Godâs freedom in creation, his power as creator of all things, and the nature of man, particularly the unity of soul and body within man. Book 1 of the Summa deals with God; Book 3, Providence; and Book 4, Salvation.
