xmlui.metadata.dc.description.abstract The Anselmian view of salvation, based on Anselm of Canterbury's treatise Cur Deus Homo (Why God Became Man), begins with the notion that humanity owes God a debt of obedience, and by sinning has offended God. There is no way for human beings to pay off such an infinite debt, having nothing of infinite value to offer. Christ, in becoming human and laying down his life of infinite value, pays the debt on humanity's behalf but also raises the dignity of human beings since "one of their own" has wrought their salvation (note the arrow pointing upward). en_US
