About this book

Kierkegaard and the Refusal of Transcendence challenges the standard view that Kierkegaard's God is infinitely other than the world. It argues that his work immerses us in the paradoxical nature of existence itself, and opposes any flight into another world.

Reviews

“This is the latest addition to the Radical Theologies series, which ‘is dedicated to redefining the very terms of theology as a concept and practice’. … Shakespeare offers us a more demanding but positive insight into how such an iconic theologian can be creatively filtered through the prism of ‘radical theology’.” (Dr. John Saxbee, Church Times, June, 2016)



Steven Shakespeare is one of the rising stars in the new generation of theologians who are intent on integrating theology with the world and getting the world to listen to the voice of theology. This book is an eloquent, meticulously document, well-argued reading of Kierkegaard as a theologian espousing the transformative power of the immanent life of God in the world. Kierkegaard and the Refusal of Transcendence is a must-read.' - John D. Caputo, Thomas J. Watson Professor of Religion Emeritus, Syracuse University, USA, and David R. Cook Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, Villanova University, USA
