C. Stephen Evans is Professor of Philosophy and Curator of the Howard and Edna Hong Kierkegaard Library at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. His books include SUBJECTIVITY AND RELIGIOUS BELIEF and PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION, and he is general editor of the CONTOURS OF CHRISTIAN PHILOSOPHY series.Review:
"The reason this book is such a delight to read is the consummate skill with which the explication of these themes is carried out. On the one hand, even for those like this reviewer, who have been reading and writing about Kierkegaard for years, Evans has fresh insight and illuminating interpretations of the themes he discusses and their relations to each other, not occasionally but with remarkable regularity. On the other hand, he writes with a lucidity and simplicity which make this volume an ideal companion for those turning to the Fragments and Postscript for the first time." --Merold Westphal, Faith and Philosophy
