A GREAT book and a GREAT edition. No sophistication, no pomp, no rhetoric - just the truth in one of the purest forms.

Format: Paperback
Although it was very good, I was bored probably because it was Spiritually philosophical and I am not much of an intellect, but more simplistic. This seemed so repetitive throughout it speaking of double-mindedness. This book helped encourage and help my brother who in turn told me to read it - but he is an intellect. I like reading more of experiences of how God transformed lives.

Søren Kierkegaard
Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing

(New York: Harper & Row, 1956 and later reprints) 220 pages
translated by Douglas Steere

newer translation in Upbuilding Discourses in Various Spirits
(Princeton, NJ: Princeton UP, 1993)
translated by Howard & Edna Hong
(ISBN: 0691032742)
(Library of Congress call number: BV4505 .K4613 1993)

A meditative book in the Christian tradition
by the founder of existentialism. To simplify and clarify life.

This reviewer's own book on Authenticity draws deeply from this book,
quoting the best parts in the chapter on Soren Kierkegaard.
You can find this book on the Internet by searching the exact title:
"Becoming More Authentic: The Positive Side of Existentialism".
Chapter 19 is entitled: "Soren Kierkegaard: Willing One Thing".

If you would like to discover other books on Authenticity,
search the Internet for: "Authenticity Bibliography".

Purity of Heart is also included in another Internet bibliography:
"Books on Existential Spirituality".

James Leonard Park, existential philosopher
