Why Anselm Still Matters

George R. Sumner

DOWNLOAD COMPLETE ARTICLE PDF

The doctrine of the atonement once more has become a point of contention, not only for revisionists but among evangelicals as well. This challenge is an opportunity to hear the tradition anew. In this article the author suggests that a careful reading of Anselm’s classic argument in Cur Deus Homo, especially with respect to the idea of “wrath,” can meet these challenges more effectively than is often supposed. Furthermore, reclaiming this doctrine in all its particularity is especially crucial for contemporary theology.
