What Is God?

The World’s Most Important Question: New Book Unpacks the Mystery That Occupies Every Human Heart

The ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything? The Catholic Church’s greatest theologian asked it when he was only a child, then spent his entire life answering it. Now all those answers have been assembled in one place.

Philosopher (and former atheist) Kevin Vost is one of the world’s foremost popularizers of St. Thomas Aquinas—who was that little boy who asked, “What is God?” —and in his new book by that name he digs into Aquinas’s masterpiece, the Summa Theologiae, to construct a comprehensive, piece-by-piece portrait of the divine attributes.

“When we stop asking and thinking about who God really is,” says Todd Aglialoro, director of publishing for Catholic Answers Press, “we tend to start re-inventing him in our own image. Kevin Vost and St. Thomas provide the antidote to sloppy theological thinking and the confusion it creates.”

In these days of widespread debate about God and how he (or she or it) acts, combined with a growing interest among ordinary Christians in the life and thought of St. Thomas, What Is God? strikes a timely and pitch-perfect note of wisdom and clarity. Vost’s trademark ability to hack Aquinas’s teachings for our generation brings believers to greater love of God and challenges skeptics to deeper reflection on truths they can’t touch or see.
