[EDIT 4/27/2014: I found the copyright renewal in this database, so I've removed the docx file. Sorry about that.]

Another work by Kierkegaard. This English translation was published in 1938 by Harper, so is now out of copyright. I got the text from ReligionOnline and converted it to a PB. I did only the minimal editing, fixed a few typos that my spell checker found for me, formatted the heading styles, and linked up the Table of Contents at the beginning. I have not proofread it for possible links to other resources or scanning errors that did not show up as misspelled words.

Here's some cover art:

Here's the book description from Amazon: "'Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing,' by Søren Kierkegaard, is considered a devotional classic. Through irony, dialogue, and parable, Kierkegaard slices through the masks and facades we construct that delude us into thinking that all is well with our soul. With the skill and precision of a surgeon's hand, Kierkegaard opens up the true condition of our motivations in life and faith. Kierkegaard is not afraid to stare in the face the dark side of our humanity. In 'Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing' we see that only through this brutal honesty can we become our true selves and find healing. Kierkegaard boldly asserts that only by joining with providence and the Great Physician's hand can we 'will one thing'--the good. The good is all that is true, eternal, and authentic. The good is all that comes from God. As with all of Kierkegaard's works, 'Purity of Heart' makes for worthy reading which will provoke and challenge you."
