Soren Kierkegaard wrote that Pietism is ‘the one and only consequence of Christianity’, yet his relation to Pietism has been largely neglected in the secondary literature. Kierkegaard, Pietism and Holiness fills this scholarly gap and, in doing so, provides the first full-length study of Kierkegaard’s relation to the Pietist movement. First accounting for Pietism’s role in Kierkegaard’s social, ecclesial, and intellectual background, Barnett goes on to demonstrate Pietism’s impact on Kierkegaard’s published authorship, principally regarding the relationship between Christian holiness and secular culture.
