This study intends to show that the answer to the question whether faith can be justified without proofs can be resolved by importing ideas from S ren Kierkegaard's and Alvin Plantinga's affirmative take on the matter.
There is a deep similarity between the way they understand belief in God and belief in Christianity. The authors share the modern idea that there is an objective truth, combining it with the postmodern stance that no method exists which would guarantee access to it. One can see at both authors not only a deep commonality of ideas, but also a remarkable way in which their understandings augment each other. Whereas Kierkegaard comes to the provocative conclusion that, if a person wants to live authentically, she will meet Christ on her life's journey without needing any proof, Plantinga's inquiry contributes to the rational plausibility of this "Justified Faith without Reasons" project.
