Abstract

Anselm of Canterbury sought to give a logical answer, free of faith presuppositions, to the question of why God would become a man. He first strives to demonstrate that no one can be saved apart from Christ, and then goes on to show the way salvation has been provided through Christ, the God-man. Against critiques that he serves a blood-thirsty God more interested in his besmirched honor than his only Son, analysis suggests that, read in context, Anselm's analysis of the Atonement is a priceless legacy for the whole Church.
