Product Overview

Simon D. Podmore claims that becoming a self before God is both a divinegift and an anxious obligation. Before we can know God, or ourselves, we must cometo a moment of recognition. How this comes to be, as well as the terms of suchacknowledgment, are worked out in Podmore''s powerful new reading of Kierkegaard. Ashe gives full consideration to Kierkegaard''s writings, Podmore explores themes suchas despair, anxiety, melancholy, and spiritual trial, and how they are broken by thetriumph of faith, forgiveness, and the love of God. He confronts the abyss betweenthe self and the divine in order to understand how we can come to know ourselves inrelation to a God who is apparently so wholly Other.
