About-

In The Truth Is the Way, Christopher Ben Simpson presents Kierkegaard's work as a theologia viatorum, a theology to guide one on life's way. This truth that is the way is at once existential, metaphysical, and theological - the highest truth is a living in accord with reality that is revealed to us and enabled in us by Jesus Christ. This picture of Kierkegaard's thought, drawing on the whole of his published corpus, presents his perspectives (by way of prolegomena) on the nature of truth, of communication and of faith and (more substantially) his guiding vision of the world, God, humanity, and Christ, culminating in Kierkegaard's understanding of the manner of life lived in light of this vision - of a journey walked in the virtues of patience, faith, hope, and love toward a life of joy in the midst of suffering, of communion with oneself, with God, with others.

Endorsements & Reviews-

'In the aptly named The Truth is the Way Christopher Ben Simpson gives an insightful and comprehensive reading of Kierkegaard's authorship, read as a theologian by a theologian, focusing on Kierkegaard's second "Christian" authorship as well as the more widely-known pseudonymous
works.'
-- C. Stephen Evans, University Professor of Philosophy, Baylor University

'Kierkegaard is the strangest phenomenon: an enormously influential writer whose thought has nearly always been misunderstood, both by
its advocates and by its opponents. Christopher Simpson's book provides us at last with a reliable and subtle reading that breaks with those of
both existentialism and postmodernism. He shows us just why we have not yet caught up with the reflections of the Danish philosopher and why the full reach of his critical understanding must be understood as the reach of his Christian theology.'
-- John Milbank, Professor in Religion, Politics and Ethics and Director of the Centre of Theology and Philosophy, University of Nottinghama
