Explanation of the Book:

A thought provoking book on the deepest questions which have plagued mankind for time and eternity. Is there a God? Why did he have to die? How are we restored by his death? Anselm tackles these tough questions in his thought provocative book Cur Deus Homo. Saint Anselm of Canterbury (1033 - 1109) was an Italian medieval philosopher and theologian, who held the office of Archbishop of Canterbury from 1093 to 1109. Called the founder of Scholasticism, he is famous as the inventor of the ontological argument for the existence of God and as the Archbishop who openly opposed the Crusades. (Wikipedia)

Explanation of the Book:

`For I do not seek to understand so that I may believe; but I believe so that I may understand. For I believe this also, that unless I believe, I shall not understand.' Does God exist? Can we know anything about God's nature? Have we any reason to think that the Christian religion is true? What is truth, anyway? Do human beings have freedom of choice? Can they have such freedom in a world created by God? These questions, and others, were ones which Anselm of Canterbury (c.1033-1109) took very seriously. He was utterly convinced of the truth of the Christian religion, but he was also determined to try to make sense of his Christian faith. Recognizing that the Christian God is incomprehensible, he also believed that Christianity is not simply something to be swallowed with mouth open and eyes shut. For Anselm, the doctrines of Christianity are an invitation to question, to think, and to learn. Anselm is studied today because his rigour of thought and clarity of writing place him among the greatest of theologians and philosophers. This translation provides readers with their first opportunity to read all of his most important works within the covers of a single volume. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Explanation of the Book:

Cur Deus Homo? (Latin for "Why was God a Man?"), usually translated Why God Became a Man, is a book written by St Anselm of Canterbury in the period of 1094-1098. In this work he proposes the satisfaction view of the atonement.Anselm says his reason for writing the book is: I have been often and most earnestly requested by many, both personally and by letter, that I would hand down in writing the proofs of a certain doctrine of our faith, which I am accustomed to give to inquirers; for they say that these proofs gratify them, and are considered sufficient. This they ask, not for the sake of attaining to faith by means of reason, but that they may be gladdened by understanding and meditating on those things which they believe; and that, as far as possible, they may be always ready to convince any one who demands of them a reason of that hope which is in us

Explanation of the Book:

The masterwork of Saint Anselm, Cur Deus Homo asks the essential question of theology - "Why was God a Man?"" Written by Anselm in the midst of his spiritual life and contemplation, Anselm attempts to answer this question with a reasoned discussion of the Christian canon. God's incarnation in the form of Jesus Christ is investigated, with the Biblical sources examined and discussed at length. The mission of Christ as a manifest teacher without sin, and his birth in an ordinary village in Palestine, is closely detailed by the studied Anselm. Saint Anselm eventually arrives at the conclusion that while man is an imperfect and sinful being without the ability to fully devote himself to God, God himself possesses the essential power and ability to place himself among and die for mankind in a bid for humanity to live for Him. It is thus that Anselm arrives at the 'satisfaction theory of atonement'.

Explanation of the Book:

After Aquinas, Anselm is the most significant medieval thinker. Utterly convinced of the truth of the Christian religion, he was none the less determined to try to make sense of his Christian faith, and the result is a rigorous engagement with problems of logic which remain relevant for philosophers and theologians even today. This translation provides the first opportunity to read all of Anselm's most important works in one volume.

It is thus that Anselm arrives at the 'satisfaction theory of atonement' (satisfaction in the sense meaning restitution rather than gratification), whereby Christ's death for human sin is a just act of Godly wrath against man's sinfulness. Adopted from a translation to English by Sidney Norton Deane, first published in 1903, this edition of Cur Deus Homo is well presented and highly readable for the modern Christian and general readers.

Explanation of the Book:

In the Proslogion St. Anselm presents a philosophical argument for the existence of God. Anselm's proof, known since the time of Kant as the ontological argument for the existence of God, has played an important role in the history of philosophy and has been incorporated in various forms into the systems of Descartes, Leibniz, Hegel, and others. Included in this edition of St. Anselm's Proslogion are Gaunilo's A Reply on Behalf of the Fool and St. Anselm's The Author's Reply to Gaunilo. All three works are given in the original Latin with English translation on facing pages. Professor Charlesworth provides in his introduction a helpful discussion of the context of the Proslogion in the theological tradition and in Anselm's own thought and writing. His commentary exhibits a careful analysis of Anselm's progression of thought and illuminates his argument by comparing it with the later ontological argument of Descartes. Professor Charlesworth deals critically with various interpretations of the Proslogion by later theologians, notably Aquinas and Karl Barth.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1865 edition. Excerpt: ... injuries, or insults, or pains, or death, if they had not Been Him experience all these Himself? CHAPTER XII. THAT ALTHOUGH HE BE A PARTAKER OF OUR INFIRMITIES, YET HE IS NOT MISERABLE. Boso. All these things clearly shew that He must be mortal, and a partaker of our infirmities. But all these are our miseries, --surely, therefore, He will be miserable. Anselm. By no means: for as a convenience which one has against one's will does not form a necessary part of one's happiness, so it is not misery knowingly, and uncompelled by any necessity, to take upon one some inconvenience of one's free will. Boso. Granted. CHAPTER XIII. THAT, TOGETHER WITH OUR OTHER INFIRMITIES, HE MAT NOT HAVE OUR IGNORANCE. Boso. But in the likeness which He ought to have with men, tell me whether He is to have ignorance also, as He has our other infirmities? Anselm. Why do you doubt of God's knowing all things? Boso. Because, though He is to be immortal from His divine, yet He is to be mortal from His human nature. Now, why may He not be like them--a man really ignorant, as He is to be really mortal? Anselm. That taking of the manhood into unity of Person with the Godhead will only be wisely done by the supreme Wisdom. And so He will not take into the manhood what is in no way useful, but very prejudicial to the work which the same Manhood is to do. For ignorance would be useful to Him in nothing, but prejudicial in many things; for how is He to do so many and so great things as He has to do, without the greatest wisdom? or how are men to believe Him if they know He did not understand what He said? Even if they did not know, of what use would that ignorance be to Him? Again, if nothing is loved except what is known, as there is to be nothing of good which He does..
