This ebook in the Eerdmans sale caught my eye, and I thought others here might be interested in picking it up at the $6.99 sale price. (Even used print copies of this one are typically $30+)

Dust Bound For Heaven: Explorations in the Theology of Thomas Aquinas

Publisher's Description:

In Dust Bound for Heaven Reinhard Hütter shows how Thomas Aquinas's view of the human being as dust bound for heaven weaves together elements of two questions without fusion or reduction. Does humanity still have an insatiable thirst for God that sends each person on an irrepressible religious quest that only the vision of God can quench? Or must the human being, living after the fall, become a "new creation" in order to be readied for heaven?

Hütter also applies Thomas's anthropology to a host of pressing contemporary concerns, including the modern crisis of faith and reason, political theology, the relationship between divine grace and human freedom, and many more. The concluding chapter explores the Christological center of Thomas's theology.
