Synopsis

This edition of Cur Deus Homo comes complete with a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents, divided by each section. The Satisfaction (or Commercial) theory of the atonement was formulated by Anselm of Canterbury in his book, Cur Deus Homo (lit. Why the God-Man?). He has introduced the idea of satisfaction as the chief demand of the nature of God, of punishment as a possible alternative of satisfaction and equally fulfilling the requirements of justice thus opening the way to the assertion of punishment as the true satisfaction of the law. In his view, Gods offended honor and dignity could only be satisfied by the sacrifice of the God-man, Jesus Christ.Anselm undertook to explain the rational necessity of the Christian mystery of the atonement. His philosophy rests on three positionsfirst, that satisfaction is necessary on account of God's honour and justice; second, that such satisfaction can be given only by the peculiar personality of the God-man Jesus; and, third, that such satisfaction is really given by this God-man's voluntary death.
