Selections from the Writings of Kierkegaard

Author:Kierkegaard, Soren (1813-1855)
Description:Soren A. Kierkegaard is arguably one of, if not the most, prominent theological thinkers to come out of Scandinavia. In this collection of some of his most representative works, L.M. Hollander offers the reader access into the brilliant mind of the Danish philosopher and theologian. Hollander argues in his introduction that Kierkegaard’s works place him “in the front rank of prose writers of the nineteenth century where, both by the power of his utterance and the originality of his thought, he rightfully belongs.” While this prose is admittedly not easy reading, the rewards for working through it are immense. Kierkegaard writes with a firm hand of the role of the Church, the demands of an ethical life, and the marvelous paradox of God becoming the lowliest of men.
