The One-Minute Aquinas

The Doctor's Quick Answers to Fundamental Questions

Book trailer

25 popes consider St. Thomas Aquinas the Church's preeminent theologian because he saw truths about God, our Faith, and the Christian life which had never been seen before.

But do you have time to read the 3,000 pages in his Summa Theologica? Do you struggle to understand the abstract theological terms he uses in On Being and Essence?

Perhaps you, like so many of us, desire to be taught by such a great philosopher as Aquinas, but feel he is well beyond your reach. Not anymore.

In The One-Minute Aquinas, veteran Catholic author Dr. Kevin Vost provides you with simple, readable explanations of St. Thomas's life-giving wisdom.

In this book's lucid pages, you'll read small, digestible portions of St. Thomas's answers to questions such as...

  • Why do souls need the sacraments?
  • Why didn't Jesus write the Bible himself?
  • What are simple proofs of God's existence?
  • What is heaven, and what is it not?
  • Why did Jesus allow himself to be crucified?
  • How can I grow quickly in virtue?
  • Who are the angels and what are their powers?
  • What is God's power and its limits?
  • Why did God become man?
  • Why did Jesus allow himself to be tempted?

And you'll learn countless, but quick, refutations to the relativistic and secular ideas that are so destructive to our culture today.

We're not all called to be intellectuals, but we are called to have an ever deeper understanding of our Faith.


For clarity choose Aquinas. For clarity on Aquinas choose Kevin Vost. Ideal for anyone who wants to cut through the silly sentimentality of modern religion and work up a brain sweat with some sound and serious thinking.

Fr. Dwight Longenecker

Most modern readers never discover Aquinas because they are put off by the sheer bulk of his writings. Kevin Vost has done such readers a favor by serving up the sain't arguments in bite-sized chunks that anyone can digest.

Karl Keating

It takes the reader by the hand, step by step, from confusion to clarity, from chaos to order, and from our simplest beginning, our search for happiness, to our final end, eternal union with God. You don't need a philosophy degree or an I.Q. of 165 to profit from this book. You need only an open mind and an honest, searching heart.

Peter Kreeft

Our mass-media culture leaves people confused about virtually everything that matters most. Anyone who realizes that will find Brown's One-Minute Philosopher a useful tool for clearing things up and sorting them out.

Germain Grisez

In a culture and an era when people tend to equate feelings with thought, The One-Minute Philosopher comes as a welcome offering. This handy volume, which is cleverly done, can be a very useful tool to those who wish to improve their thinking and communication skills.

Most Rev. John Myers

Deep wisdom is not usually short, clear, and sprightly; and short, clear, sprightly books are not usually very deep or wise; but Dr. Montague Brown has written a very unusual book that is both. It puts profound, practical, universally human wisdom into a format that even a scatterbrained MTV addict can understand and profit from. It is a book that can permanently change young lives.
