The Three Outsiders Mar 25, 2008
Great book and a good discussion of Pascal, Kiekegaard, and Weil. Diogenes Allen is a clear and concise thinker and writer.
Three Outsiders Feb 26, 2006
The three outsiders are Blaise Pascal, Soren Kierkegaard, and Simone Weil. They were outsiders, because they distanced themselves from the institutional church of their respective eras. They felt that the Church failed to take seriously the profound and disturbing relationship with God which is in Christ Jesus. From their position "outside" they questioned the assumptions and understanding of their contemporaries. As creative theologians, these three each produced original but dificult writings which professor Allen has synthesized and interpreted for anyone who asks the question, "How am I to be a Christian?" --- from book's back cover
