    Kierkegaard and the Self Before God: Anatomy of the Abyss.Simon D. Podmore - 2011 - Indiana University Press.
    Simon D. Podmore claims that becoming a self before God is both a divine gift and an anxious obligation. Before we can know God, or ourselves, we must come to a moment of recognition. How this comes to be, as well as the terms of such acknowledgment, are worked out in Podmore’s powerful new reading of Kierkegaard. As he gives full consideration to Kierkegaard's writings, Podmore explores themes such as despair, anxiety, melancholy, and spiritual trial, and how they are broken (...)

    The Lightning and the Earthquake: Kierkegaard on the Anfechtung of Luther.Simon D. Podmore - 2006 - Heythrop Journal 47 (4):562–578.
    By focusing discussion through Søren Kierkegaard's view of Martin Luther's initiation into the monastery , it is suggested that an analogy can be discerned for Kierkegaard's own sense of divine vocation and the ensuing self‐mortification of melancholy and religious scrupulosity which commentators have suspected in both figures. Kierkegaard's often ambivalent critique of Luther's Anfechtung is thus read as bearing ironic significance for his own struggles with ‘spiritual trial’ [Anfægtelse]. In this reading, Luther's Anfechtung is taken to signify for Kierkegaard both (...)
