Water into Wine: Aquinas on Faith & Reason

November 03, 2014 12:00 PM

A special luncheon for Mount faculty

Dr. Vost explains how St. Thomas Aquinas’s writings on faith and reason helped him return to Christ and the Church after 25 years of atheism, inspired his master’s level and doctoral work in cognitive and neuropsychology, and have provided the foundation for his books on memory improvement, spiritual and physical fitness, biographies of saints, apologetics, and the development of virtue and avoidance of sin.
