"....her analysis makes illuminating distinctions and in the process introduces the reader to the most recent scholarship on Works of Love. For these reasons, the book is worthwhile reading for any Kierkegaard student or scholar." ---M. Jamie Ferreira, University of Virginia, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"It is surely no easy task to offer a significant new interpretation of Kierkegaard's central concepts of faith and love, and yet this is what one finds in Sharon Krishek's bold and stimulating new study. Krishek's work is especially valuable for its insights into Kierkegaard's overall philosophy of love, in particular with her attempt to deal with thorny issues raised from the lack of a univocal conception of love in Works of Love by considering Fear and Trembling as a corrective. This is both provocative and novel when one considers that it is sometimes the reverse textual relationship that is seen to hold...." ---Søren Kierkegaard Newsletter, Michael Strawser, University of Central Florida
"we have a book by an avowed Kierkegaardian who is willing to call her mentor's hand regarding the concept of love that he developed in Works of Love. What makes this refreshing and unusual is that Sharon Krishek (SK) presents us with a critique of Kierkegaard's (SK's) view of love that is based on Kierkegaard's view of faith." ---International Journal for Philosophy of Religion, Ronald L. Hall, Stetson University
"Sharon Krishek's Kierkegaard on Faith and Love argues that romantic love is a central and abiding theme in Kierkegaard's writings and of philosophical importance." ---Journal of European Philosophy, George Pattison, University of Oxford
Sharon Krishek offers an original and compelling interpretation of the Works of Love in the light of Kierkegaard's famous analysis of the paradoxicality of faith in Fear and Trembling, showing that preferential love plays a much more important and positive role in his thinking than has usually been assumed.
