Product Description

About the Author

Soren Kierkegaard's childhood was clouded by the religious fervour of his father. Studying both theology and the liberal arts, he began to criticize the Christianity upheld by his father and look for a new set of values. He wrote no fewer than twelve major philosophical essays and his work inspires both modern Protestant theology and existentialism. In his own time, he died an object of public ridicule and scorn.

First Sentence
There was once a man; he had learned as a child that beautiful tale of how God tried Abraham, how he withstood the test, kept his faith and for the second time received a son against every expectation. Read the first page

Search for "Fear and Trembling (Classics S.)". It's the same translation (by Alistair Hannay) but actually has notes + an introduction (although the introduction is a little long and over interpretive).

The Great Ideas version will probably look better on your shelf and is more portable, but it's worth spending the extra pound or so on the full version. This is especially true if you aren't familiar with Kierkegaard.

It's probably also worth mentioning that the Cambridge Companion to Kierkegaard has a nice (intoductory) essay on F&T

Okay, I'll admit, this kind of stumped me, it isn't a simple book, and requires a lot of thought while reading. I, while reading this, stopped several times, to re read and think about what was being said, a first for me, and found that by doing so, really drew something from this book. A great read for anyone interested in modern philosophy. Also the face of the book looks great, very cool cover design.
