Good morning/whatever, /lit/.

What book would you recommend me (I consider myself intelligent) to help me become Christian?

I've been a christian before. Then I read about Tantra and Buddhism, a lot Nietzsche, and a bunch of philosophical stuff, and I seem to me unable to believe anymore.

I want an intellectual approach to Christianism.

Kierkegaard

Thomas Merton

The author of the aesthetics of Christian truth: forgot the subtitle and the author. Just look it up on Amazon

Nuanced and intellectual religious authors are the best

This. Kierkegaard is for people like us - Intelligent, Witty, and a wicked sense of humor.

Barabbas

I've read Fear and tremble, I liked it a lot but I didn't really empathise with his passion... and he didn't convince me much. Im planning a reread tho.

OP here. Pessoa was a gnostic christian. Would you recommend me a book to learn about that?
>>
>>7577465
surely you don't barabbas by obscure belgian playwright Michel de Ghelderode, do you?
>>
>>7577499
The gnostic gospels by Elaine pagel is considered the masterwork on gnostic history. Otherwise, being a monotheistic deist in a Unitarian church would be pretty close to a modern Gnosticism.

Yup. He's got articles online that you can read beforehand. I'm not Christian or atheist but he's the only Christian that if say thoroughly BTFOs atheist arguments about the non-existence of God

Yes, Lutheran

>>7577527
You just recommended me two books that would position me AGAINST gnosticism? I mean, those two authors seem to criticise it. If I want to know how A is, I dont ask someone who believes B... Is this a high level of trolling?
>>
>>7577549
You might also want to check out Edward Feser's The Last Superstition for a scholastic perspective on the new atheism

>>7577612
It looks really interesting
