Reading Kierkegaard Today: His Vision, Message, and Challenge

Jul 11–Jul 15 8:30AM–11:30AM INDS 637/THEO 637 1–2 Credits (1 Audit)
Kierkegaard's writings, while influential, are not sufficiently appreciated by Christians. While many think that modern life has "outgrown" religion due to a sense of intellectual superiority, Kierkegaard challenges this assumption. Together, we'll explore his assertion that modern secularism is actually rooted in a weak understanding of the imagination and emotions. In addition, we'll learn from Kierkegaard's challenge to Christian nationalism as a contemporary expression of "Christendom." In all this, we'll seek to hear Kierkegaard's compelling messages to secular society and the church—messages rooted in his vision of human existence as lived "before God."
