Intelligent, wealthy, and well-connected, Thomas left it all behind to become a missionary of God's truth, joining the newly formed Dominicans. This 35th volume in the Encounter the Saints series will introduce children ages 9-12 to the struggles and victories in the life of the brilliant Saint Thomas Aquinas. With great humility, he taught university scholars and preached in town squares to anyone who would listen. Following Saint Thomas Aquinas' example, children will be inspired to share their own gifts with others in simplicity of heart and mind.
The 'Encounter the Saints' series offers readers ages 9-12 down-to-earth portrayals of the saints who faced many of the same challenges we do. Each story vividly recreates the saint's life, including the place of origin, family life, and corresponding historical events. The engaging dialogue and illustrations make it easy to relate to the saints and provide excellent role models for boys and girls.
