Anselm: Is the Father Unjust?

“God the Father did not treat [Christ unjustly or irrationally]; nor did he hand over an innocent man to be killed in place of the guilty party. For the Father did not coerce Christ to face death against his will, or give permission for him to be killed, but Christ himself of his own volition underwent death in order to save mankind.”

-Anselm of Canterbury, Why God Became Man, Book 1, 8.
