In this book, Jacob H. Sawyer explores the concept of hiddenness as a means to unlock the intriguing, and oft misunderstood, authorship of Soren Kierkegaard. By understanding the melancholy man as first and foremost a Christian thinker, this work gives special attention to how the form of Kierkegaard's authorial task complements its content, giving particular attention to his use of pseudonyms. The first part of the book addresses the explicit content of the authorship, the second addresses the implicit form in which it was communicated to Kierkegaard's reader, and the third addresses how these can help us understand Kierkegaard's own "hidden inwardness." Through this investigation, Soren Kierkegaard is recognized as an example par excellence of a communicator. He is seen to have attempted to only speak what his own life could uphold, striving to be one who was in Christ the truth.
