Thinking Christianly in an Existential Mode

Sylvia Walsh

Christian Theology in Context

  • Biographical Introduction places Kierkegaard's theology in relation to his life
  • Discussion of theology contextualised in the intellectual, cultural, and socio-political milieu of the 19th century
  • Focus on Kierkegaard as a Christian thinker and writer rather than as a philosophical, literary, or general religious thinker - thereby introducing a central but neglected area of his work
  • Provides ample quotations from Kierkegaard's own texts to better introduce the substance and style of his writings
  • Explores Kirkegaard's distinctive way of thinking theologically in an existential mode
