This collection's focus, as a whole, is broad enough to offer access into most arenas of Kierkegaard scholarship but intense enough that each essay makes a contribution to those arenas. Several of the essays (those from Westphal, Evans, Bauckham, and Wood) offer not only penetrating insight into the continuing import of the Dane but also serve as almost archetypal introduction to the thought of the commentators themselves.--Christopher W. Moore "Journal of NABPR"
Kierkegaard's main critique of Christianity was that it had become too easy. The least we can do, then, in reading him (or reading about him) is to put in some effort. This book is well worth leaping into. It shows how Kierkegaard's thought might speak, both rigorously and creatively, to the challenges faced by Christians in today's world.--Elizabeth Palmer "The Christian Century"
Martens and Evans have put together a strong volume. Those unfamiliar with Kierkegaard should find it a relatively easy read, while those who do know him will find it a joy to read and interact with the different scholars in this book.--Matthew Brake "Reading Religion"
This volume is perhaps the most important text in recent decades to consider the ways in which Kierkegaard's thought is of historical relevance to Christian thought and at the same speak to what it means to be (or try to become) a Christian.--Elizabeth Palmer "Choice" --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
