The Divine Madness of Romantic Ideals: A Reader’s Companion for Kierkegaard’s Stages on Life’s Way
By author: Kevin Hoffman

Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Kierkegaard's writings are severely complicated and readers often do not know what to make of them given the array of genres he deploys. He is at once a philosopher, theologian, literary critic, and poet in his own right who writes under multiple pseudonyms directed at an unsure audience. Stages on Life's Way is one of his longer and more elusive texts, and even scholars often shy away from it. The Divine Madness of Romantic Ideals offers a close and extensive reading of this puzzling production, showing how its disarming, concrete themes of personal love and marriage help unlock more abstract conceptual boxes within Kierkegaard's authorship for a general readership, pointing out the forest while paying scrupulous attention to the trees.

In this book, Canipe traces the rise of Baptist democracy as reflected in the work of three prominent leaders who made significant contributions to Baptist life between 1900 and 1925. Celebrating the harmony between the principles of their church and the ideals of their state, these three Baptists eloquently articulated what, by the turn of the twentieth-century, had become an article of faith for many of their fellow Baptists: What American democracy is to worldly government, Baptist principles are to religion—God’s chosen way for humanity.

As the most comprehensive study of Thoreau’s spirituality from a Christian perspective, The Spiritual Journal of Henry David Thoreau is the first to seriously examine connections between Thoreau’s religious practices and those of his Protestant forebears. While a few writers have considered the relation between Thoreau’s thought and Christian doctrine, this book instead outlines the links between Thoreau’s religious practices (such as keeping a spiritual journal, studying nature, and walking) and those of earlier New England Protestants.
