   A good meditation on faith
For the penguin edition of the book, "The Penguin's" view of Christian existentialist thought was more akin to a caveman's. Note that Kierkegaard's sentences tend to be very long at times. Also, I enjoyed the footnotes, which provided a really good biographic view of Kierkegaard's life, and how certain events influenced his thoughts. Hegelian aesthetics and faith are also prevalent in the West. This knowledge helps him as he does mention him a lot to the world as this piece is a response to the Hegelian world view. If you are a fan of faith, the absurd, Christianity or the novel meditations of Abraham, you may want to check out this book.
   This is an inspiring, rapid read.
I enjoyed the fresh approach to Christian thought in this book written so long ago, and did not get bogged down in dull verbiage, he said. A really inspirational book, said Dr. Goin.
   Who's Fear?
But I can't really say what Kierkegaard is going on about here. I read the whole book and thankfully it's a short book because there's all the stuff about Abraham and there's a bit about a merman and the ethics of listening to God to kill your own son, Sosa said. Reading this made me think less about Abraham and more about both the directions given by the deity and the son who would have been sacrificed. Overall it was an interesting and worthwhile read, but if you really ask me what I'd read and could synthesize a summary I probably couldn't.
   Oh great damaged on arrive.
On arrival, the nurse noted that the client had received a "clean bill of health." I'm disappointed that the new book is already damaged. It did come along with a few other books I ordered, but none of them was damaged in anyway. The pages seem to have the same in quality, no damage to them, which is perfect, the text is pretty tight together, but not an inherit problem for me, he said. I do worry about the quality of the pages because I plan to highlight some of the notes and make some.
There are some books that mark your intellectual life in a way that is not possible without them. Before you can read this book, you must have read the entire First Book. Fear and Trembling was such a book for me.
   and the Father of Existentialism's lost love.
Fear and Trembling by the eminent German existentialist philosopher Sren Kierkegaard is a must-read for all. He also laments that faith is not a rational approach to life. The position is based on inferences drawn from the story of Abraham and Isaac, the life of Christ, and the Father of Existentialism's lost love.
