Sample pages from F.C. Bauerschmidt's Holy Teaching: Introducing the Summa Theologiae of St. Thomas Aquinas

If you search around the web for sample pages from F.C. Bauerschmidt's highly regarded annotated abridgement of the Summa, Holy Teaching: Introducing the Summa Theologiae of St. Thomas Aquinas, you unfortunately will not find any. Until now. I emailed Dr. Bauerschmidt and he kindly provided me with a scan of two pages from the book:

Aquinas on Charity as Friendship

Aquinas on Charity as Friendship 2

Also see the Table of Contents for the book.

Recommended Books

I love Fr. Gary Coulter's Recommended Formation Reading book list (not just for priests!) It's got great titles like Pieper's "Leisure: The Basis of Culture", Trochu's "St. John Vianney", Chesterton's "Aquinas: The Dumb Ox", Merton's "Seven Storey Mountain", Pope John Paul II's "Witness to Hope", Dante's "Divine Comedy", etc. etc. etc.
