About the Author

Bruce H. Kirmmse is one of the world's leading Kierkegaard translators and scholars. He is the author of Kierkegaard in Golden Age Denmark, the editor of Encounters with Kierkegaard (Princeton), and the general editor of Princeton's eleven-volume edition of Kierkegaard's Journals and Notebooks (Princeton).


"Kirmmse's new translation of Kierkegaard's homiletical reflections on Mat thew 6:24-34 captures the sermons' beauty and gravitas." * The Christian Century *
"Kirmmse offers a new translation of this religious work and a concise introduction. In the original preface, Kierkegaard expresses the hope that the lily and the bird would serve as a means for humans to learn silence, obedience, and joy. Those three concepts loom large in some of Kierkegaard's writings, and they receive lucid treatment here." * Choice *
"A gorgeous stand-alone edition. . . . For a reader familiar with Kierkegaard's philosophical work, what's most striking about Three Godly Discourses is its gentle, graceful simplicity."---Will Rees, Times Literary Supplement
