The Kierkegaard Society of North America often receives announcements of books published about Kierkegaard and related topics, book series, and new translations that are likely to be of interest to members. We do not forward these by email to our members, but upon request we will list them here, along with discount offers from publishers when available. Where possible, a link to the publisher's webpage on the series or work is provided. Authors are welcome to submit a book abstract or chapter summary to which their listing can link.
-- Please understand that this is hardly a complete list. I'm doubtless missing important works, but add items as I find them and when notice is sent (and there's a lag time).
-- That said, p
lease email items you would like listed here to John Davenport at

1. Recent scholarly works (e.g. monographs) and edited collections

Discourses at the Communion on Fridays, tr. Sylvia Walsh (Indiana University Press, 2011)

Søren Kierkegaard's 13 communion discourses constitute a distinct genre among the various forms of religious writing composed by Kierkegaard. Originally published at different times and places, Kierkegaard himself believed that these discourses served as a unifying element in his work and were crucial for understanding his religious thought and philosophy as a whole. Written in an intensely personal liturgical context, the communion discourses prepare the reader for participation in this rite by emphasizing the appropriate posture for forgiveness of sins and confession.
