Purity of Heart Is to Will One Thing

by Sören Kierkegaard

Sören Kierkegaard is one of the towering Christian existential thinkers of the mid-nineteenth century. While his literary style was experimental, his writings call for Christian morality; a defense of faith and religion. Among his many books are Training in Christianity, Sickness Unto Death, and Fear and Trembling.

This book was first published by Harper in 1938. It was translated from the Danish and contains an introductory essay by Douglas V. Steere. Prepared for Religion Online by Ted and Willie Brock.


(ENTIRE BOOK) In this devotional classic, Kierkegaard seeks to rescue the individual from “massification” by compelling him to stand alone before God.. This calls for a costly abandonment of the old securities and the building of new foundations for faith — to will one thing.
