Beschreibung"Not only does this book make Kierkegaard accessible but it also entertains, regales with story, and amuses. It will be useful for the lectern, pulpit, and after-dinner dais. The selections, which made me laugh, illustrate sardonically the contradictions of existence."--David J. Gouwens, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University
PortraitThomas C. Oden is Henry Anson Buttz Professor of Theology at Drew University. He is the author of many books, including "The Rebirth of Orthodoxy", and General Editor of the "Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture".
PressestimmenI would say that Kierkegaard is the greatest theorist of irony . . . and that Oden himself is a magnificent guide to his thought on this problematical subject and on Kierkegaard's thought on humor in general. . . . When one reads Kierkegaard--and often more intelligibly for the general reader, someone like Oden--one sees why books written in a contemporary modern vein of irony are so profoundly boring.
