A collection bringing together three works on the philosophy of religion written from the period of 1848-49 which Kierkegaard described as 'beyond all comparison the richest and most fruitful year I have experienced as an author'. Together the works are notable as early examples of the polemics against self-satisfied and complacent Christianity which would dominate Kierkegaard's later writings.
'As a thinker Kierkegaard is generally considered to be, however eccentric, one of the most important Christian philosophers' (PMM).
