Overview

The title, Knight of Faith, is taken from Fear and Trembling by Soren Kierkegaard. This knight is an ordinary man who believes God’s word to him against all appearances—like Abraham, the original knight of faith, did with Isaac. He enters this narrow way of faith, where few venture. Kierkegaard says he is very different from the knight of infinite resignation who believes the answer will come sometime, if not in this life then in the next.

 

About this knight of faith Kierkegaard writes, “But if I knew where there was such a knight of faith, I would make a pilgrimage to him on foot, for this prodigy interests me absolutely. I would not let go of him for an instant, every moment I would watch to see how he managed to make the movements, I would regard myself as secured for life and would divide my time between looking at him and practicing the exercises myself, and thus would spend all my time admiring him.”

 

This knight of faith is found in Norman Percy Grubb. He looked the ordinary man, such as any ordinary man, but he had discovered the keys of the kingdom…faith…and shared it with all. 

 

As you read his letters you too will find a remarkable, yet very human, person who spent a lifetime seeking God’s face, believing “by virtue of the absurd” and relentlessly sharing in every way possible that which God had given him. The world will not always recognise the true knight, but he is there…butcher, baker or candlestick maker…or…a housewife with a vision of the impossible!
