Item description for Kierkegaard the Christian: An Anthology of Quotations by Robert B. Scheidt & Soren Kierkegaard...
Overview From the enlightened era of the nineteenth century comes a voice relevant to our day and time. Because truth is eternal, we glean insightful knowledge from this Danish philospher. The 1507 quotations in this book are selected to introduce the reader to the full range of Kierkegaard's thoughts as a Christian. This book is topically arranged. Its subjects range from God to Man, Eternal to Temporal, Sin to Self-Denial, Passive Belief to Passionate Commitment, etc. Kierkegaard said of himself: "My whole authorship pertains to Christianity... ." "What do I care about the world's honor and glory, and what do I care about its ridicule and scorn, indeed, what do I care about its ridicule and scorn, indeed, what do I care about myself if only God may be honored." Kierkegaard's ideas are timeless: There is only one relation to revealed truth: believe it. We have Christ's word that there is an eternal life, and with that the matter is decided. They are important: Do not doubt whether you are immortal? Tremble, because you are immortal. They are contemporary: The majority of people are willing to be grateful when they receive a good gift, but then they demand that it be left to them to decide which gift is good. They are the Gospel: No friend has ever been able to be more than faithful unto death, be he remained faithful in death--his death was indeed my salvaton.
