Kierkegaard's "Training in Christianity."

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I really have to read the works of Kierkegaard some day.

There are no books that qualify as great, Christian, and existentialist.  Cool

You don't like Existentialism in general or just the Christian variation of it?

I like Kierkegaard's Fear and Trembling, though it does not really take a systematic approach.

I just don't think it can be successfully put together. It's sort of like the concept of Cartesian skepticism. It's an oxymoron.
