Existing Before God introduces readers to one of the most important nineteenth century Christian thinkers, Søren Kierkegaard. In this volume, Paul R. Sponheim, unfolds Kierkegaard's Sickness unto Death— a key text outlining the problem of the human condition and the paradoxical heart of authentic Christian faith, the qualitative difference between God and creatures and its synthesis in the God-man. Sponheim also draws out the connections between this text and Kierkegaard's larger theological and ethical vision, and the reception and significance of this text in the modern and contemporary theological tradition.
