    von Balthasar tells the story of metaphysics from Homer to Thomas Aquinas. I love that von Baltahsar follows his theme wherever it takes him; this 7-volume series is about "The Glory of the Lord", so he follows this idea from antiquity to modern times, in philosophy and theology, in poetry and science. von Balthasar tells the story of metaphysics from Homer to Thomas Aquinas.
