New Credo Podcast – Anselm: Faith, Reason, and the Fullness of Joy.
Who was Anselm of Canterbury? Those who have never read Anselm often caricature the medieval theologian as an esoteric logic chopper. A careful read of Anselm, however, reveals a different story. Anselm’s “perfect being” theology was not only the apologetic grounds of his ontological argument, but an entryway into his affirmation of both faith and reason. Anselm’s famous statement – God is “that than which none greater may be conceived” – was no bare proposition, but a declaration of praise. Anselm’s doxological reasoning defined his pursuit of happiness. In this episode of the Credo Podcast, Matthew Barrett is joined by Gavin Ortlund to discuss Anselm’s marriage of faith and reason in his pursuit of everlasting joy.
