Abstract:

"We are now becoming numbed by the outrageous events taking place within the political arena of our country. Throughout our nation, the division between factions continues to hold firm. The issue of how movement toward reconciliation can occur has become ever more pressing. Nothing short of our democracy is at stake. This book looks to the writings of the nineteenth-century Danish religious philosopher Soren Kierkegaard as a resource for thinking in fresh ways about how the divine power of creative transformation is at work in the world. Through divinity's empowering of our practices in relating to others, democracy can be resurrected to a new, healthy life. Six important themes from Kierkegaard's thought are used to do a comparative examination of Donald Trump together with his world and Kierkegaard and his world. The story of this standoff--between one of the world's most famous and well-publicized figures and one of the world's greatest thinkers--constitutes a compelling investigation and presents quite a contrast. Uncovered in the storytelling process of Kierkegaard trumping Trump are the "Sweet 16" sixteen ways in which resurrection can be practiced in people's lives and help to restore our democracy to a fuller and more vibrant version of itself."--Back cover.
