A magisterial overview of the work of one of the greatest thinkers of the 19th century. In this volume of the Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series, Duncan unveils a vivid portrait of Kierkegaard, a sincere Christian “becomer” who believed that faith is not a doctrine to be learned but a life to be lived.
About the Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series Who are the thinkers that have shaped Christian theology in our time? This series tries to answer that question by providing a reliable guide to the ideas of the men who have significantly charted the theological seas of our century. Each major theologian is examined carefully and critically—his life, his theological method, his most germinal ideas, his weaknesses as a thinker, his place in the theological spectrum, and his chief contribution to the climate of theology today.
