The main contention of this book is that Kierkegaard’s apophaticism is an ethical-religious difficulty, concerning itself with the "whylessness" of existence. This is a theme that Kierkegaard inherits from the philosophical and theological traditions stemming from Meister Eckhart.

The book examines Kierkegaard’s apophaticism with reference to five themes: indirect communication, God, faith, hope, and love. Across these themes, the aim is to lend voice to "the unruly energy of the unsayable" and, in doing so, let Kierkegaard’s theological, spiritual, and philosophical provocation remain a living one for us today.

Salvation in Continuity deals with big questions––soteriology, intertwined with Christology––of utmost significance for understanding Matthew in its first-century Jewish setting. It argues that Matthew’s understanding of salvation in continuity is to be seen as his response to the historical and theological questions of post 70 c.e. Judaism. The study employs a sequential treatment of the Gospel, which enables it to avoid the danger which characterizes many previous studies of limiting the discussion of salvation in Matthew to certain texts, where the theme of salvation is more direct and explicit.

Recent scholarship has postulated "hidden criticism" in the letters of the apostle. But how can we decide, in a methodologically sound way, whether such a counter-imperial message lies beneath the surface of the text? Christoph Heilig suggests several analytical steps for examining this paradigm and concludes that the hypothesis that we can identify critical "echoes" of the Roman Empire in Paul’s letters needs to be modified if it is to be maintained. He encourages a reevaluation of Pauline passages in light of Paul’s engagement with ideas from his Roman environment.
