"By gently dismantling a host of venerable myths, Guy Mansini's essay on the Benedictine origins of St. Anselm's concept of satisfaction proves worth the price of this book all by itself. But Fr. Mansini does far more. Listening carefully to theologicans past and present, rigorously analyzing the issues, and quietly declining to join in fruitless stand-offs between opposing schools, he shows--far better than a treatise on method could--an inviting way forward for Catholic theology today." -Bruce Marshall, Professor of Historical Theology, Southern Methodist University.
