Item description for Soren Kierkegaard: An Authentic Life the Life and Writings of an Extraordinary Christian Philosopher by Ben Alex...

Overview
"What is truth other than to fully live for an idea?" It is amazing that the voice of this modern John the Baptist was not recognized in the English-speaking world until almost 100 years after his death in 1855. When Kierkegaard was finally translated, he emerged from the subconscious of an era, and his thinking had a stunning impact. Here were the ideas which a disillusioned world needed in order to understand what was going on in the 20th century - and here was a call for every single individual, whether Christian, Buddhist, or atheist, to look deeper and scrutinize the landscape of their own precarious existence. This beautiful treasury presents Kierkegaard's existential philosophy in light of his religious experience and devout Christian faith. Contains quotes and inspirational passages, full color photos, interviews with scholars, and a concise biographical sketch - an accessible introduction to a fascinating thinker.

Reviews - What do customers think about Søren Kierkegaard: An Authentic Life?

A "must read" for all Kierkegaard enthusiasts.  May 3, 2000
Soren Kierkegaard original wrote his philosophy of life in the 1840s and offered more than 13,000 pages of existential thought and exploration into the meaning of Christianity and God. His work was not discovered by the French existentialist movement until after his death and became widely known in the 1930s. In Soren Kierkegaard: An Authentic Life, The Life And Writings Of A Christian Philosopher With Samples From His Works, Ben Alex shares his profound and personal experiences of pilgrimage to Denmark and his detailed and exhaustive studies of Kierkegaard's powerful life and thought. This Northstone Publishing edition is a beautiful treasury of Kierkegaard's existential philosophy in light of his religious experience and devout faith. Compelling photographs link Kierkegaard's words to important historical sites. This highly recommended compendium of quotes, inspirational passages, and interviews with scholars, is enhanced for the student of Kierkegaard's work with a concise biographical sketch.
