Fear and Trembling by Soren Kierkegaard

"Fear and Trembling" is a philosophical work that explores the concept of faith, drawing upon the biblical story of Abraham and his willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac. The author uses this story to delve into the paradox of faith, arguing that true faith requires a willingness to make personal sacrifices that may seem absurd or irrational to others. The book challenges conventional notions of morality and ethics, suggesting that faith may sometimes require actions that go beyond the bounds of societal norms.
