Although S ren Kierkegaard, considered one of the most passionateChristian writers of the modern age, was a Lutheran, he was deeply dissatisfied withthe Lutheran establishment of his day. Some scholars have said that he pushed hisfaith toward Catholicism. Placing Kierkegaard in sustained dialogue with theCatholic tradition, Jack Mulder, Jr., does not simply review Catholic reactions toor interpretations of Kierkegaard, but rather provides an extended look intoconvergences and differences on issues such as natural theology, natural moral law, Christian love, apostolic authority, the doctrine of hell, contrition for sins, thedoctrine of purgatory, and the communion of saints. Through his analysis ofKierkegaard's philosophy of religion, Mulder presents deeper possibilities forengagements between Protestantism and Catholicism.
