“To read this book with care is to know oneself pursued by ‘The Hound of Heaven.’ Purity of Heart is one of many books in which Kierkegaard sought to rescue the individual from ‘massification’ by compelling him to stand alone before God.” - Howard A. Johnson in The Review of Religion

“Of S.K.’s ‘Edifying Discourses’ none has more permanent value than this one and none can be read with more appreciation by others than confirmed Kierkegaardians… Dr. Steere’s introduction to the book is also a good brief introduction to Kierkegaard.” - Christian Century

“About the greatness of the book there can be no question. It should be reagarded as the equivalent of shock therapy.” - Chad Walsh in The Living Church
