The event will take place in Lecture Room 1 at St Francis College, from 5:30-7pm on Thursday, October 19th. 

"Peter Kline’s remarkable and innovative book stands at the forefront of a dynamic new horizon in theological readings of Kierkegaard. Moved by passion and unknowing, Kline elucidates the mystical dimensions of Kierkegaard’s existential vision with sophistication and profound creativity. This is a vital reading transfigured by the longing for a God whose gift exceeds our grasp—a longing in which Kierkegaard’s theology lives, breathes, and loves." - Simon D. Podmore, Liverpool Hope University

“Peter Kline is not only a first-rate scholar of Kierkegaard – with seemingly exhaustive knowledge of his texts and the inner workings of his thought – he is also a “repetition,” a student, writing poignantly of his passion for the apophatic [God] and the works of love that this apophasis births. His lucid, winsome prose invites readers to enter Kierkegaard’s radical vision – while his conclusion incites readers to embrace the artistry of the self reduced to nothing.” – Wendy Farley, San Francisco Theological Seminary
