Product description


"...the reader who thinks to wait for the next 'better' edition and translation of this remarkable text will be almost certainly be waiting for quite some time."
Christopher Nelson, The Catholic Historical Review

"Walsh renders the Danish text in English prose that is both attractive and accurate. Her multiple footnotes ably identify literary, philosophical, biblical, and classical allusions, thus assisting novice readers to enter the world of the text with confidence...The edition belongs in all undergraduate as well as graduate or divinity school libraries that feature other volumes by or about Soren Kierkegaard." --Religious Studies Review

"...a book that is, in terms of its translation, introduction and notes, a very worthy addition to the series of which it is a part." --John Lippitt, University of Hertfordshire: Philosophy in Review

Book Description

In this rich and resonant work, Kierkegaard reflects on the biblical story of God's command to Abraham that he sacrifice his son Isaac as a test of faith. This volume, first published in 2006, presents the first new English translation for twenty years, by Sylvia Walsh, together with an introduction by C. Stephen Evans.
