Kierkegaard's Writings, XXIV, Volume 24 : The Book on Adler Paperback / softback
Part of the Kierkegaard's Writings series
Kierkegaard was driven to write The Book on Adler after news spread that a Danish pastor, Adolph P.
Adler, claimed to have experienced a revelation in which Christ dictated a new doctrine.
Like many others, Kierkegaard was intrigued by Adler--but for different reasons than most.
Over the eight years during which Kierkegaard worked on the manuscript, the phenomenon of Adler became a concern secondary to the larger question of authority.
Kierkegaard revised the manuscript many times, and published a segment of it as "The Difference between a Genius and an Apostle" in Two Ethical-Religious Essays, but did not publish the work as a whole before his death.
The latest integral version of The Book on Adler is included here, along with excerpts from the earlier drafts and a sampling of writing by Adler himself.
