G.K. Chesterton + St. Thomas Aquinas = perfect combination

For people interested in philosophy, religion, the nature of man, and how to grow closer to God, I'd highly recommend this book. Chesterton does a great job of creating a portrait of the man who reconciled Aristotle with Christianity. Most memorable to me was his description of the ending of Aquinas' life, his humility, his recognition of how small and dependent we all are before God, and the honesty of Aquinas' heart as he prepared to face the end. I definitely plan on reading this again, and am excited to read more from Aquinas.
