About this product
- DescriptionSimon D. Podmore claims that becoming a self before God is both a divine gift and an anxious obligation. Before we can kw God, or ourselves, we must come to a moment of recognition. How this comes to be, as well as the terms of such ackwledgment, are worked out in Podmore's powerful new reading of Kierkegaard. As he gives full consideration to Kierkegaard's writings, Podmore explores themes such as despair, anxiety, melancholy, and spiritual trial, and how they are broken by the triumph of faith, forgiveness, and the love of God. He confronts the abyss between the self and the divine in order to understand how we can come to kw ourselves in relation to a God who is apparently so wholly Other.
