$ 19.77 $ 23.77

Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange turns here to God the Trinity, who created the heavens and the earth and who is beheld in the contemplative vision to which all human beings are called--the vision that is their ultimate sanctification. In his characteristically-ordered style, Garrigou-Lagrange offers his interpretation of St. Thomas by expounding, explaining, and comparing the teaching of the angelic doctor to that of preceding and subsequent theologians. In particular, Garrigou-Lagrange depicts St. Thomas as fulfilling the foundation laid by St. Augustine: it is in their mutual relations that the divine persons are known as person. He lays special emphasis also on the call of all humans to contemplative holiness. The exposition of the Trinity is a beginning of the journey of contemplation by which a man or woman enters the life of God to be reformed according to the likeness of the Trinity in whose image he or she was first created, body and soul.
