    I own many of these books and couln’t agree more. I would throw in Scott Sullivan’s courses.

    I would also highly, highly recommend the following to add to the above list:

    – “Catholic and Christian” by Alan Schreck
    – “The Biblical Basis for the Catholic Faith” by John Salza

    These are really good resources for explaining why Catholics *are* Christian and that the faith *is* Bible-based. I’ve lent my copies to a couple of Evangelical friends who have been taught a lot of (false) anti-Catholic rhetoric and thus believed that Catholics aren’t Christians (they were pretty unhappy when I told them I was going Catholic) and they’ve now got a much better understanding of Catholicism and awareness of false teachings about Catholicism.

    Have you read Ralph McInerny? He was a marvellously prolific Thomist philosopher and author at Notre Dame, and he wrote the delightfully titled ‘A First Look at Thomas Aquinas: A Handbook for Peeping Thomists’, which I think is a marvellous introduction to Aquinas for complete beginners.
