      1. To be honest, not much over the years beyond quotes and articles that spoke of his ideas and influence. That is until you posted that quote four days ago, and I realized how reading his works might help my current state of mind.

        So, three days ago, I purchased “The Lily of the Field and the Bird of the Air: Three Godly Discourses” and “The Sickness Unto Death.” When you replied to my comment, I had just finished reading the introduction to the former by Bruce Kirmmse.
