Read full description of the books:
"Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God." This simple statement comprehends the ultimate reward God offers us- the gift of eternal life.
But what does it really mean to be pure in heart, and how does one attain such a state of righteousness? In this book Elder Dallin H. Oaks, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, addresses these paramount questions, sharing insight and enrichment from the scriptures, from modern prophets, and from personal experiences.
Emphasizing the significance of thoughts rather than of actions alone, the author examines the interdependent mental processes that make up the inner man: motives, desires, and attitudes. Stimulating chapters on motives and desires stress that "we must not only do what is right. We must act for the right reasons." Why? Because "we will ultimately be judged and rewarded for what we are. And what we are is the sum total of our good and our evil actions and desires." Materialism, pride and spirituality- all formed from attitudes- are examined in a discussion that strongly emphasizes the need to place spiritual considerations above temporal ones. In the same vein Elder Oaks searchingly describes the mental attitude necessary to true worship of God. His final chapter focuses on what we must do to become pure in heart- to "cleanse the inner vessel," as President Ezra Taft Benson put it.
Pure in Heart is a clear, forthright book that offers authoritative penetrating commentary on this prerequisite to eternal life and helpful guidelines on how to attain it.
