Anselm’s Theory of the Atonement: The Bohlen Lectures, 1908


Longman 1909

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The John Bohlen lectures for 1908, Anselm’s Theory of the Atonement is not a constructive statement of the doctrine of the atonement; it is a critical and historical study of the claim that the Reformation dogma is the Catholic doctrine. As this has long been regarded as the test of orthodoxy and has been, in a multitude of instances, a painful obstacle to faith, the evidence that it is absent from the ancient and patristic teaching is offered as a useful apologetic, which may clear the way for a simpler, more rational, and more scriptural expression of the redemptive work of Christ.
