A book?... Perhaps

I have been meaning to do this a long time, but very recently I have decided to go through with it and start work on a book of my own. I know what I want to say, I just now need the time and determination to see it through. The working title is: "An Existentialist approach to Jesus".

Very basically, it is a compilation of what I have been trying to do here. I want to simplify Kierkegaard's religious ideas to the point where someone who isn't well-versed in philosophy or dosen't have the time and interest to study him (like I did) can understand and benefit from it. Kindof like "Kierkegaard for the masses", not that I think I will do a very good job. I will take alot of topics that has already been discussed here but rethought, fleshed out, and in some cases changed. I do not have any formal qualifications for such a book, but considering Jesus was a peasent and Kierkegaard feared academics I don't think it would be doing them an injustice.

I don't know what i'll do with this blog in the meantime, if I am realistic i'd say the book will take one to two years to write, since I'd have to do it in between university study. There is a good chance i'll abandon the idea and just post everything that I had written here, I am not sure. It will be a thin and small book of around 100 pages I think. It will be fun...

Sounds great! I think there is a need for just such a book, and I think you are in a unique position to write it. You've certainly got some very clear thoughts about existential Christianity.
