This seminar addresses the thought of two giants of Christian theology: St. Thomas Aquinas and Johann Gerhard. Both the Angelic Doctor and the master of Lutheran dogmatics have perceptive insights into the natural knowledge of God. Dr. Greeley explains the thought of both figures and compares and contrasts their perspectives.
