philosophical thinking, including Soren Kierkegaard’s monumental
treatise Fear and Trembling. But what if we’ve been reading it all wrong?

Reverend Clayton Crawley, the Chief Church Relations Officer at the
Church Pension Fund and Assisting Priest here at St. Bart’s, delves into
the account that has puzzled scholars for millennia.
