Anselm of CanterburyJohn Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
Anselm is a unique figure in the panoply of Christian thinkers and in this book Benedicta Ward, an Anglican nun and reader at the University of Oxford, brings him vividly to life. A European, he was called at the age of sixty to come to England and succeed Lanfranc as the Archbishop of Canterbury. Anselm’s main concerns were proofs of the existence of God, why God became man, the veneration of saints and their relics and the origin of the soul. These are weighty subjects but Sister Ward makes them comprehensible and significant through her own clear understanding of them and her ability to clarify and share that understanding with the reader. Anselm died exactly nine hundred years ago. Since then he has been continuously studied, discussed, argued about and challenged by philosophers and theologians. This work is a valuable addition to the list.
