Just for you, Donna

Which theologian are you?

You scored as Anselm. Anselm is the outstanding theologian of the medieval period. He sees man’s primary problem as having failed to render unto God what we owe him, so God becomes man in Christ and gives God what he is due. You should read ‘Cur Deus Homo?’

Here’s another of those fun personality tests that was initially posted by Barbara Nicolosi where I took the test first (and must have given a couple of slightly different answers from what I’m about to post because the results I posted in her comment field aren’t exactly the same as what I’m about to post here — they’re a little less polar there). I suspect I gave slightly different answers for some questions about which I am somewhat indifferent (“The best way of expressing our love and unity with God is by music”), sloppily worded (“When Jesus said his blood was spilled for ‘many’, he meant ‘all’ “) or think a false dichotomy (“Good preaching is more important than good theology”)

No surprise that Anselm and Augustine are out front, and while I knew I would score highly with the Calvinists Barth and … uh … Calvin, the fact that Barth is tied with Augustine was a bit disconcerting. I’ve never read anything by Barth firsthand (I don’t even own a copy of CHURCH DOGMATICS, or even a full volume of Calvin himself for that matter, and I’m told Barth’s magnum opus is strictly for professionals and stylistic masochists) while St. Augustine is a man I walk with every day. I was also surprised how much lower I scored for Martin Luther, though I suspect strongly disagreeing with “the papacy is a tool of the devil” will do that. And I’m disappointed that I didn’t score lower for Jurgen Moltmann.
