There is a story somewhere about a meeting between John Wesley and Joseph Butler that didn't go so well; Butler, like most eighteenth century Anglicans, was shocked at anything 'methodistical', and firmly disapproved of it. I am quite a bit more open to the 'methodistical' than Butler; but I pay only a tiny bit more attention to Methodist theology than he did.

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?'

I'm not sure why Anselm is considered "the outstanding theologian of the medieval period," but I am very pro-Anselm, and thus am pleased. I suspect the main factor in whether you get Anselm is how close you are to accepting an Anselmian account of the atonement.
