The Man of Faith

All the great works in this world touch us in an ineffable yet powerful way. What is behind the wonder of nature, the grandeur of music, and the beauty of literature? For Kierkegaard, it is passion. The highest passion is faith. A grain of it moves mountains. A taste of it shakes existence. This essay is not supposed to teach logic, truth, or any sort of science. Instead, it is here to open our heart, to face the eternal question of humanity and to explore the great passion by invoking the passion in us!
