This exposition and defense of divine truth has two main parts: the consideration of that truth which faith professes and reason investigates, and the consideration of the truth which faith professes and reason is not competent to investigate. The exposition of truths accessible to natural reason occupies Aquinas in the first three books of the Summa. His method is to bring forward demonstrative and probable arguments, some of which are drawn from the philosophers to convince skeptics. In the fourth book Aquinas appeals to the authority of Sacred Scripture for those divine truths which surpass the capacity of reason.

YOU KNOW FOR A MAN TO HAVE TO CONVERT PEOPLE THAT UNDERSTAND AND HAVE STUDIED THE PHILOSOPHY OF ARISTOTLE, THOMAS AQUINAS HAD TO CHOOSE HIS WORDS REAL CAREFULLY. HE PROVE THAT GOD EXISTS AND HE IS MERCIFUL WITHOUT USING A LOT OF QUOTES OF THE SCRIPTURES AND HE PROVED IT BY USING THE BASIC WORK OF ARISTOTLE AND THAT TO ME IS GREAT IT JUST EXCITES ME TO KNOW THAT IN 13TH CENTURY THEIR EXISTED A REAL INTELLIGENT MAN THAT WE CAN STILL USE HIS WORK TO HELP SPEAK ABOUT THE CREATOR
