This is an introduction to the influence of Kierkegaard's thought on the development of modern theology. Kierkegaard is in many respects an enigmatic figure. About half of his published work appears under an array of pseudonyms and Kierkegaard himself advises that readers should not presume his agreement with any of the views appearing under pseudonymous authorship. Alongside the pseudonymous works are a long series of discourses published under Kierkegaard's own name, and accompanying the whole corpus are six volumes of Journals in which Kierkegaard experiments with ideas and makes note of his own questions and discoveries. Kierkegaard's concern throughout the authorship was to make clear, in opposition to the corrosive forces of Christendom and the posturing of contemporary philosophy, what authentic Christian faith consists in. "The Philosophy and Theology" series looks at major philosophers and explores their relevance to theological thought as well as the response of theology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This work is a clear, powerful, and provocative account of some of the major themes in Kierkegaard's writings that deal with theological issues. Highly recommended to anyone interested in Kierkegaard's understanding of Christianity and Christian existence.
Regent's Reviews
With impressive erudition Murray Rae offers the reader a stimulating and thought-provoking account of the theological dimension of Kierkegaard's thought. Rae skilfully draws out Kierkegaard's theological presuppositions and shows how Kierkegaard shifts the emphasis from the contents of the Christian faith to the challenge of how human beings should relate themselves to these contents. This highly readable book will be an important resource for those coming to Kierkegaard for the first time and for those who wish to engage with the theological Kierkegaard.
