Donald F. Duglow, "Anselm and Talking about God.G. R. Evans," The Journal of Relig no. 4 (Oct., ): Anselm's Basic Writings is a book which purports to prove the most basic doctrines of Christianity - the God exists, that He is a Trinity, that He is omnibenevolent, omniscient and omnipotent, that He sent His son Jesus Christ to die for the sins of humanity and thereby reconcile fallen humanity to eternal life in God's .   Publisher description: St Anselm of Canterbury () was one of the greatest Christian writers of medieval Europe. Although best known as the inventor of the famous ‘ontological argument’ for God’s existence, his writings cover all the chief aspects of Christian doctrine and have been a major influence on western theology. As a philosopher, Anselm is most often remembered for his attempts to prove the existence of god: In De Veritate (Of Truth) he argued that all creatures owe their being and value to god as the source of all truth, to whom a life lived well is the highest praise.

The Ontological Argument for the Existence of God The ontological argument is an a priori argument. The arguments attempt to prove God's existence from the meaning of the word God. The ontological argument was introduced by Anselm of Canterbury in his book Proslogion.

If a man or angel always gave to God what is due to him, he would never sin. Boso. I cannot deny that. Anselm. So sin is simply not giving God what we owe. Boso.   Anselm is best remembered today for his writings, such as Proslogion (Discourse) and Cur Deus Homo (Why Did God Become Man?), and for what is now known as the ontological argument for the existence of God.

  The masterwork of St. 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 s: 9.   John McIntyre, in his book St. Anselm and His Critics, once described the Benedictine monk named Anselm as one who “makes his theology a prayer.” This is an apt way of approaching Anselm’s work Proslogion, precisely for its unique combination of theological intellectualism and deeply personal devotion.

Anselm was a brilliant guy. A genius. He published his book Why God Became Man in , so you could say it’s a bit of an antique. Anselm’s book is really about why Christ had to take on a human nature and be conceived of and born to a virgin.
