"On the way where a man follows Christ, the height of suffering is the height of glory."So writes Kierkegaard, long considered the father of existentialism, in his comprehensive explanation of how suffering in all its forms is transformed into joy by faith in God. As an integral part of his 'Edifying Discourses', Gospel of Sufferings bears witness to Kierkegaard's transition from a general religious and philosophical standpoint to a specifically Christian one, forming what is now considered a central plank in the structure of his mature thought. In this classic volume, the great Danish thinker brings together elements that show him to be at once a mystic and a theologian, confirming his status as a precursor of the existentialists and a brilliant philosopher in his own right.

Soren Kierkegaard was a nineteenth century Danish philosopher and theologian, widely regarded as prefiguring the existentialist movement that dominated post-war Continental philosophy. His multi-layered, ironic, often obscure and yet deeply personal writings stress the necessity of a purely immediate, individual relationship with God, unmediated by any external religious authority.

  • VI. The joy in the thought that even when time's suffering is heaviest eternity's blessedness still outweighs it.

  • Back cover
"It is short, readable, and less 'intimidating' than Kierkegaard's more complex works, whilst inadvertently free from the footnoted trappings of modern Kierkegaard scholarship (which can sometimes obfuscate Kierkegaard as much as clarify). ....this volume is still to be welcomed. Kierkegaard's inimitable proclamation of the Gospel is as challenging and comforting here as it ever was."
-Aaron P. Edwards, Theological Book Review, Vol. 27 No.1, 2016

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
