Pure in Heart

“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.

The Lord's Way

In The Lord's Way, Elder Dallin H. Oaks contrasts the ways of the Lord with the ways or methods of the world in resolving such issues as these:

  • What is the relationship between learning by study (reason) and learning by faith (revelation) — and when should each be used?
  • What is the difference between the proofs of science and the signs or miracles that the Lord has told us we should not seek?
  • How should we care for the poor among us?
  • Why should we avoid contention?
  • When are we justified in participating in litigation?
  • Why should we refrain from faultfinding and evil-speaking, and how should we resolve differences with others, especially leaders?
  • How does church discipline differ from civil or criminal procedures?

“When it comes to the work of the Lord and his purposes, it is not enough to obtain a good result — it must be done in the right way,” Elder Oaks declares. That is the Lord's way.

Full Purpose of Heart

Elder Dallin H. Oaks, known for his keen gospel insights and precise expression, has been blessing Latter-day Saints with inspired discourses for many years. Now, Deseret Book offers a collection of some of his most popular and powerful addresses in With Full Purpose of Heart. "I hope that bringing them together in one place will facilitate access and cause the persuasiveness of the compiled whole to be greater than the sum of the scattered parts," Elder Oaks says.

In this book, he applies latter-day doctrine to the joys and challenges of life as he examines gospel principles related to judging, repentance, revelation, the resurrection, the sacrament, the Atonement, and the Lord's timing. He bears strong testimony of the divinity of the Savior and the plan of salvation, and challenges us to ask ourselves: What think we of Christ?
