Evans is a first-rate Kierkegaard scholar. He views WORKS OF LOVE as seminal in the corpus of Kierkegaard's authorship. This book took five years to write and forms his basis of Divine command theory of ethics.

Evans helped change my point of view on Kierkegaard; indeed, his position was that of an orthodox Christian theist rather than the stripped down existentialist found in Camus, Sartre, et al. Evans is one of his 21st century champions and deserves the recognition he currently receives.
