      A collection of books and writings by Søren Kierkegaard. Søren Kierkegaard was the first existentialist philosopher, sharp and clear, ironic and down to earth at the same time. His writings can be hard to comprehend. I have been reading some of his books as they were written, in Danish, and I can imagine that translators must have had a hard job. Second, existentialism centers on the analysis of individual existence. However Christianity teaches that God created man with a purpose, and all were made in His image. And lastly, existentialism teaches that we do not have any certain knowledge of right and wrong, good and evil. Once again Christianity teaches something quite different.

Christianity and existentialism both believe that time should be cherished. Christians view time as a heavenly offering from God, while existentialists believe that individuals must live in the now, because they will not be on earth for long. Christian existentialism relies on Kierkegaard's understanding of Christianity.

Kierkegaard argued that the universe is fundamentally paradoxical, and that its greatest paradox is the transcendent union of God and humans in the person of Jesus Christ. Nearly all existential thinkers, Christian and non-Christian alike, note Kierkegaard’s texts as being primary for an existential understanding.

Other theologians such as Paul Tillich and Rudolph Bultmann have contributed much to the realm of Christian existentialism, and while their theology is of the liberal bent, their work in the field.

This form is often identified with some notion of Early Christianity, which mostly existed during the first three centuries after Christ's crucifixion.

Existentialism asserts that each person is their own authority concerning truth. Traditional Christianity insists that God is the absolute final authority over His creation and all things. Existentialism believes that existence precedes essence. Traditional Christianity believes that a person’s essence is predestined from God and precedes existence.

Existentialism as a Broader Movement. “Existentialism” applies first and foremost to the philosophy of Sartre.

But he thought of his work as developing the philosophy of Heidegger. And Heidegger, like Sartre, was heavily influenced by Kierkegaard, with Nietzsche and Dostoevsky mixed in.
