The awareness of being a single individual with eternal responsibility before God is the one thing needful. ―Søren Kierkegaard
What gives life meaning? For the incomparable nineteenth-century Dane, Søren Kierkegaard, it was “a question of understanding my own destiny, of seeing what God really wants me to do; the thing is to find a truth which is truth for me, to find the idea for which I am willing to live and die.”
Medicine for the Heart is a guide to the extraordinary richness of Scripture seen through Kierkegaard’s eyes. He wrote about Scripture as none other, a literature of surpassing artistry and rare moral power. Kierkegaard described a new believer who discovered that life was beautiful, that it was a new gloriousness of faith that no human being can give to another, but that every human being has what is highest, noblest, and most sacred in humankind. It is original in him, and every human being has it if he wants to have it.
The author is an internationally recognized professor of cardiology whose research has been devoted to understanding and explaining the workings of the human heart.
“The Bible, God’s Word, is unlike any other written word. It holds unparalleled value to all mankind. Dr. Dwain Eckberg’s book illuminates a map, applying Kierkegaard’s theological works, guiding the reader into a deeper understanding of how not just to read the Bible, but to consume it. I highly recommend this book for everyone looking to delve deeper into scriptures or anyone just starting their pursuit of biblical studies.”
