In this overview of Soren Kierkegaard s life and work, Elmer Duncan helps readers understand Kierkegaard s principal philosophical and theological insights and their ongoing effect on current religious thought. It is part of the classic Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series, recently made available again with new paperback cover designs.


Generally acknowledged as one of the greatest thinkers of the nineteenth century, Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard (1813 1855) has also often been named the father of existentialism, as twentieth-century Christian existentialism appropriated his insights for theology and ethics, stressing human experience, freedom, and the commitment of faith. Contemporary theology can hardly be understood without reading him.


In this overview of Kierkegaard s life and work, Elmer Duncan helps readers understand Kierkegaard s principal philosophical and theological insights and their ongoing effect on current religious thought. Most of all, Duncan unveils a vivid portrait of a sincere Christian becomer who believed Christianity is not a doctrine to be learned but a life to be lived a man whose primary objective was to help others to be becoming Christians also.


The Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series remains a must-read for anyone eager to understand these theologians and their impact on today s church.

Matthew Henry (1662-1714) is highly-valued by contemporary preachers and Bible users. Here we get a closer look at the life of Matthew Henry by an author who has had a life-long interest in Matthew Henry and his writings. Matthew Henry was the son of a Puritan pastor who had been silenced by the government of the time. Nevertheless Philip Henry, a godly man reared his family on Christian principles and Matthew followed the Lord from an early age. Although it was difficult to find suitable ministerial training, Matthew Henry eventually studied for the ministry. With government opposition relaxing, he became a Presbyterian pastor in Chester in 1687 and later in London from 1712. It is astonishing to note the amount of preaching and writing that he accomplished despite suffering from ill-health and knowing intense sorrow in his family life.

Few thinkers have been as influential as Augustine of Hippo. His writings, such as Confessions and City of God, have left an indelible mark on Western Christianity. He has become so synonymous with Christianity in the West that we easily forget he was a man of two cultures: African and Greco-Roman. The mixture of African Christianity and Greco-Roman rhetoric and philosophy gave his theology and ministry a unique potency in the cultural ferment of the late Roman empire. Augustine experienced what Latino/a theology calls mestizaje, which means being of a mixed background. Cuban American historian and theologian Justo González looks at the life and legacy of Augustine from the perspective of his own Latino heritage and finds in the bishop of Hippo a remarkable resource for the church today. The mestizo Augustine can serve as a lens by which to see afresh not only the history of Christianity but also our own culturally diverse world.

My Bright Abyss Meditation of a Modern Believer

Eight years ago, Christian Wiman, a well-known poet and the editor of Poetry magazine, wrote a now-famous essay about having faith in the face of death. My Bright Abyss, composed in the difficult years since and completed in the wake of a bone marrow transplant, is a moving meditation on what a viable contemporary faith--responsive not only to modern thought and science but also to religious tradition--might look like.
Joyful, sorrowful, and beautifully written, My Bright Abyss is destined to become a spiritual classic, useful not only to believers but to anyone whose experience of life and art seems at times to overbrim its boundaries. How do we answer this "burn of being"? Wiman asks. What might it mean for our lives--and for our deaths--if we acknowledge the "insistent, persistent ghost" that some of us call God?

Sometimes, it's not only what we plant but where we're planted. As opposed to homesteading, Once Upon a Farm is a book on "lifesteading" as New York Times bestselling author Rory Feek learns to cultivate faith, love, and fatherhood on a small farm, while doing everything but farming.

With frequent stories of his and Joey's years together, and how those guide his life today, Rory unpacks just what it means to be open to new experiences. Much like Jesus' biblical parable, when we scatter our seeds, some will grow in the fertile land and warm sun. Rory contends that it's the same way with our dreams, but we must always pay attention to what our story is teaching us.

It's long been said that timing is everything, and it is, unless you haven't done the work to be prepared. What does it mean to cultivate life, to be open to new directions, to invest in another person as a way of connecting with God? Through his wealth of stories and vulnerable spirit, Rory opens up on those struggles in his own life and, in the process, shows the way for us all.

"This isn't a how-to book, it's more of a how we or more accurately how He (God) planted us on a few acres of land and grew something bigger than Joey or I could have ever imagined."

It's an ongoing story of a new frontier, all woven into a new season of learning to grow a new life and love in the land that his wife loved so much.
