Readers who are primarily interested in Aquinas should read the book in order, skipping Chapter 7 on Aquinas and Barth, if they find it too technical. To enable different readers to read different parts of the book, or to read the chapters out of order, I have allowed some motifs (on nature and grace, revealed and revealable, the meaning of para phusin) to recur, with references to the main discussion, and with the kind indulgence of readers who take the chapters in order. This book uses Aquinas’s commentaries to reassess the naturallaw tradition for scholars of ethics, politics, philosophy, religion, and law, as well as those clergy, lawyers, pundits, and justices who hope or fear it will settle controversial issues, especially of sexuality and gender, in multiple public forums.

This opens a wide field for mystery: God, things, singulars, and conclusions. But “mystery,” in the sense of the Greek mysterion, is no mere unknown, but the 28 Aquinas and the Supreme Court participating symbol of an overflowing goodness. Each mystery – God, things, singulars, conclusions – signals another relationship, another source of goodness inexhaustible. As a corollary, I suggest (going beyond Aquinas but calling on John Paul II) that gender (also) images the mystery of God. We cannot know the essence of God Proponents of modern natural-law thinking will demur, saying, of course we cannot know the essence of God, but we are not trying to know the essence of God; we are trying to know the law of human nature.
