Backhouse has written a terrific book.
This study of Soren Kierkegaard is eminently relevant to us today. Kierkegaard wanted to reintroduce Christianity to those who thought they knew all about it already. Our pews are full (though American pews are emptying) of folks who are bored and self-satisfied in their spiritual apathy.
Kierkegaard is a great antidote to apathy. Read Backhouse’s wonderful book and see why!
