This chapter investigates the account of transition from unbelief to faith and account of how one learns the Truth presented in Chapter 1 of Søren Kierkegaard's Philosophical Fragments. In this chapter, the problem of becoming a Christian, the difficulty of distinguishing Christianity and culture and the difficulty in understanding what Christianity is are discussed and analyzed within the context of Kierkegaard's Philosophical Fragments. The chapter also discusses the connection between Søren Kierkegaard and Johannes Climacus and to what extent Kierkegaard himself approves the ordo salutis proposed by his pseudonym.
