Theology professor Dr. Andrew Whitmore has released his first book, titled Saintly Habits: Aquinas’ 7 Simple Strategies You Can Use to Grow in Virtue. Turning to the works of St. Thomas Aquinas, Whitmore presents a guide to virtue that will transform the understanding of what a virtuous life looks like and teach Catholics how to put this new knowledge into practice.

“This book was written not to revive an old intellectual concept, but so that we can be transformed,” writes Whitmore. “It was written not only to reclaim an understanding of virtue, but to develop a life of virtue.”

Whitmore, who earned his Ph.D. from the Catholic University of America, specializes in moral theology. One of his passions, both in and outside the classroom, is helping Catholics better understand this branch of theology, resulting in this new book, published by Ascension Press.

In the book, Whitmore draws on the writing of St. Thomas Aquinas to increase Catholics’ understanding of virtue and how to live it out each day. Presented in a manner that makes the wisdom of Aquinas accessible to modern-day Catholics, the book leads readers through the great saint’s theology of virtues, habits, and vices, resulting in a rich spiritual journey that can be applied to daily lives.

The book is already gaining praise, including from the University of Notre Dame’s William Mattison.

“With Saintly Habits, Andrew Whitmore joins the ranks of Catholic thinkers such as Peter Kreeft, philosophically and theologically sophisticated thinkers who present important aspects of the Catholic intellectual tradition in an accessible manner to a broader audience,” writes Mattison.

Whitmore is an associate professor of theology at Christendom, where he teaches Moral Theology, Bioethics, Christology, Grace, and more.
