UPDATE: this session was originally planned for Feb 13th, but due to ill health and unforeseen circumstances has now been moved to March. Full and accurate details below.
On Tues 13th March, we'll be meeting for our fifth Heritage session, and given how in Foundations we're examining the Incarnation and the Atonement, there'll be no better opportunity to read a little from St. Anselm's Cur Deus Homo - "Why did God become man?"
This is one of the most important works in western theological history, and has proven hugely influential even in popular circles. If you've ever heard the explanation that only a perfect God-man could represent humanity whilst satisfying God, you're likely indebted to Anselm.
What role did the Incarnation play in the atonement? Why did Jesus have to be born of a virgin? What was God's purpose in becoming man? All questions within Anselm's purview.
You can find a copy of the text here.
We'll be meeting on Tuesday 13th March, at 7.30pm, at mine & Jo's house.
(Directions here.) All welcome!
