About the book

Grundtvig's viewpoint on human nature and human society, on the relationship between national and international community, on the inner dynamic which sustains and drives forward the Christian tradition, remains remarkably little known outside his own country.

In recent years, however, this situation has begun to change. Grundtvig's thought is being more widely studied and discussed in an international perspective. This fascinating and very varied collection of essays, mostly European and North American, suggests that in N.F.S. Grundtvig we have a 19th-century thinker with unexpected relevance to the dilemmas of the new century.
