In this brief work the author aims at proving in a single argument...the existence of God. The author writes as one who contemplates God, and seeks to understand what it is he believes. He originally titled this work "Faith Seeking Understanding." He finally named it Proslogium...simply, "A Discourse." Often called the second Augustine, St. Anselmus starts out from the same principle as the first; he holds that faith precedes all reflection and all discussion concerning religious things. Unbelievers, he says, strive to understand because they do not believe; whereas Christians, on the contrary, strive to understand because they do believe. Lamp Post is proud to present some of the finest Christian literary works of all time-writings that have affected the Church, touched the hearts of its leaders, and helped shape Christianity for two thousand years; timeless books that have endured and are deserving to be included among the Christian Classics.
