The different stories of Abraham were definitely intriguing and excellently told. I am having trouble fully grasping Abraham's level of faith especially in relation to the knight/tax collector he introduces half-way through page twenty seven. I believe that Abraham's faith was not happened upon by sheer luck, but meditated on and labored over - faith does not equal unquestioning belief. I have read the section after Abraham only once and am not sure if I think I understand what Kierkegaard is saying well enough to comment.
