This audiobook gives readings of all of Kierkegaard main works--Either/Or, Fear and Trembling, Concluding Unscientific postscript, and finally his war with the Lutheran church of Denmark. Kierkegaard is a critic of modern Christianity in a different way than Nietzsche or Sartre. He criticizes Christianity not for its precepts but for not taking these precept seriously. He criticizes Christendom and State Christianity for offering a watered down version of Christianity.

I listened to his reading

A brief look into the mind and major works of Søren Kierkegaard, the father of Christian existentialism, before I embark on his own much longer, and much murkier, writings. Dense and polemical, his ideas seem a far cry from the irreligious, pragmatic Denmark of today. (Read by Charlton Heston :-))
Parker Larson
This is a brief look at the Danish philosopher's life and his Christian existentialism beliefs. This book is not rich with material, but provides a quick overview of Kierkegaard's eccentric ways and philosophic mind.

Some of his thoughts were annoying and others were neat. It didn't say, but I wonder how much regret he had for not marrying his betrothed. That's just something that can't be easily set aside.
