Summary

Kierkegaard discusses Genesis 22:1-18, the story of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac. He notes that Abraham was all willing to sacrifice his son in the name of god, without tears or complaint; he simply obeyed. He argues that faith requires passion - something that Abraham clearly had and that you must experience it yourself or you could never truly understand.

where is the other half of this book ?!?!

what was there was fine, perhaps the narrator spoke a little fast and with a strange cadence at some points but the main issue is half of this book is missing.

Good content, poor delivery

There are plenty of good concepts and ideas in this short work, but the narration stands in the way. The reading pace and style makes this very difficult to enjoy.
