Slotemaker's volume is a nuanced and concise account of Anselm's theology, especially on the Trinity, and an insightful overview of the complex and controversial reception of Anselm's thought, raising provocative questions about theological method and historiography. -- Eileen Sweeney, Boston College
John Slotemaker takes the reader on a detailed and engaging account of one of the most important thinkers from the Middle Ages. Opening windows onto the key aspects of Anselm's theological vision, his thought on the Trinity, the doctrine of God, Redemption and Creation, this well structured and paced study is as enjoyable as it is instructive. The emphasis on Anselm's inheritance from Augustine, as well as elucidating the long influence that Anselm's works held for Christian thinkers since the twelfth century, give a fascinating and satisfying scope to the study. Anselm's unbending desire for God is placed, by Slotemaker, in a rich and accessible context. -- Giles Gasper, Durham University, UK
