Kierkegaard is remarkable in his way of writing on faith and the passion of Abraham. It's really admirable that someone can have so much faith in God and can trust Him to know the best thing for you. I really liked the different readings of the Abraham/Isaac story. The differences were really striking, and it shows different ways of interpreting the story that can give it different meanings and different ways to be significant. The mother is supposed to be representative of God, right? And faith? I get that the different ways that Isaac and Abraham act has to do with faith and the relationship to God, but I just want to make sure that I'm reading that part right.
