Crossing the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology, and literature, the Danish writer Soren Kierkegaard is regarded as one of the most significant and influential figures in contemporary thought. In Kierkegaard's view, faith is the most essential task of life. Faith is not a matter of dogmatic adherence, but rather of subjective passion. In Purity of Heart, Kierkegaard discusses different aspects of living, particularly the responsibility of single-minded spiritual seeking and ethical integrity, offering clues to the nature of the good while insisting that each reader must work this out for themselves.
Get ready for the woodshed...in "Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing," Kierkegaard attacks the idea that men can be "double minded" (i.e. be intent on pursuing things apart from Christ) & still be successful in experiencing intimacy with Him. In its call to place Christ above all, this book echoes the message of Bonhoeffer's "The Cost of Discipleship" & Dallas Willard's "The Divine Conspiracy." A tremendous read!
Purity is a rel8tional Equation.
