Few saints have thought more deeply about the Four Last Things than St. Thomas Aquinas–history’s greatest theologian. In these pages, Dr. Kevin Vost has made readable and accessible St. Thomas’s core teachings and insights on the Four Last Things and the wondrous experiences God has in store for us. With St. Thomas as his guide, Dr. Vost explores the destination of our souls after death and uncovers the mysteries surrounding limbo and purgatory. He unveils what our bodies will look like at the resurrection and identifies the four special gifts that will perfect our bodies in heaven. You’ll learn whether sinners will be “left behind” on earth and why we pray for the dead and to the saints. You won’t find here any long, ponderous theological treatises, but rather rapid-fire summaries in simple, accessible language that answer for you a wide a range of questions. Paper.
