"Connell's book is an overwhelming achievement that not only opens new vistas for Kierkegaard scholarship, but also further invigorates the conversation surrounding a (Christian) theology of religions."
— Fordham University
"George Connell's long engagements with the problem of religious pluralism and with the writings of Kierkegaard come together fruitfully here. . . . A work of mature scholarship, filled with challenging and illuminating insights."
J. Aaron Simmons
— Furman University
"This book is a game-changer in Kierkegaard studies. Connell argues with clarity and rigor that Kierkegaard's thought is instructive for addressing religious diversity in the contemporary world. Avoiding mere abstraction, Connell courageously models the engagement that he calls for by setting Kierkegaard into dialogue with Confucius and by looking at Kierkegaard's reading of the Akedah in light of 9/11. Anyone who attempts to think about Kierkegaard's social relevance will need to go through this book to do so."
Carl S. Hughes
— Texas Lutheran University
"Writing at a time when Christian theologians were (re)discovering religious diversity, Kierkegaard can sometimes seem like an ostrich with his head in the sand. Connell makes a persuasive case that Kierkegaard's meditations on paradox, particularity, uncertainty, and anxiety can nonetheless inform Christian thinking on religious diversity in constructive ways. This is a much-needed exploration of an important topic."
"Whether readers are only slightly acquainted or have spent a lifetime studying Kierkegaard, they will find this effort enriching."
