We live spiritually when we live in the presence of God.
The Danish philosopher S ren Kierkegaard is often read for his contributions to Christian theology, but he also has much to offer about spirituality--both Christian and more generally human.
C. Stephen Evans assesses Kierkegaard's belief that true spirituality should be seen as accountability: the grateful recognition of our existence as gift. Spirituality takes on a Christian flavor when one recognizes in Jesus Christ the human incarnation of the God who gives us being. In this clearly written and substantive book a leading scholar on Kierkegaard's thought makes Kierkegaard's contributions to spirituality accessible not only to philosophers and theologians but to pastors, spiritual directors, and lay Christians.
The Kierkegaard and Christian Thought series, coedited by C. Stephen Evans and Paul Martens, aims to promote an enriched understanding of nineteenth-century philosopher-theologian S ren Kierkegaard in relation to other key figures in theology and key theological concepts.
