Kierkegaard: Fear and Trembling by C. Stephen Evans
Book DescriptionIn this rich and resonant work, Soren Kierkegaard reflects poetically and philosophically on the biblical story of God's command to Abraham, that he sacrifice his son Isaac as a test of faith. Was Abraham's proposed action morally and religiously justified or murder? Is there an absolute duty to God? Was Abraham justified in remaining silent? In pondering these questions, Kierkegaard presents faith as a paradox that cannot be understood by reason and conventional morality, and he challenges the universalist ethics and immanental philosophy of modern German idealism, especially as represented by Kant and Hegel. This volume, first published in 2006, presents the first new English translation for twenty years, by Sylvia Walsh, together with an introduction by C. Stephen Evans which examines the ethical and religious issues raised by the text.

Books By Author C. Stephen Evans
God and Moral Obligation, Paperback (May 2014)
This book argues that moral obligations are best understood as divine commands or requirements; hence an important part of morality depends on God. God's requirements are communicated in a variety of ways, including conscience, and that natural law ethics and virtue ethics provide complementary perspectives to this view.
Natural Signs and Knowledge of God, Paperback (September 2012)
Is there such a thing as natural knowledge of God? C. Stephen Evans presents the case for understanding theistic arguments as expressions of natural signs in order to gain a new perspective both on their strengths and weaknesses.
Exploring Kenotic Christology, Paperback (December 2009)» View all books by C. Stephen Evans
This collection of essays by a team of Christian philosophers, theologians, and biblical scholars explores the viability of a kenotic account of the incarnation--an account inspired by Paul's lyrical claims in Philippians 2: 6-11 that Christ Jesus though God in nature, emptied himself or made himself nothing by becoming human.
