Kierkegaard was by no means unknown in Denmark. However, it took almost a century for his writings to make an impact on the wider philosophical and theological scene, partly because he wrote in Danish. Finally, though, his writings were translated into many languages, allowing this great mind to make a huge impact on Western thought. Philosophically, he is sometimes credited as a father of Existentialism, along with Pascal and Nietzsche; theologically, the father of Neo-Orthodoxy; psychologically, an anticipator of depth psychology; spiritually, an author of beautiful devotional texts. At the bottom of his contributions, though, is a deep conviction that the Christian life must be lived with an unconditional passion for God, presenting a challenge to theologians and Christians even today.
