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.
