Overview

Recognized as a modern spiritual classic and perhaps Dietrich von Hildebrand's greatest work, this sublime and practical study gives a penetrating analysis of the true path to holiness for those who love Christ. The first requisite is the person's desire for change, and with that fundamental attitude in mind, von Hildebrand devotes a chapter to each of the successive spiritual attitudes necessary for those who strive for Christian perfection. The Beatitudes are treated with beauty and depth in an uncompromising challenge to every serious Christian to put into practice these teachings of Christ.

This is a daunting read for a Protestant layman unacquainted with philosophical terms, Latin and German words and phrases, and the Catholic liturgy. The author's background, actively opposing the rise of Nazism, lends credence to his deeply spiritual and firmly grounded biblical approach to this subject. Related integrally with the subject, this book is a veritable storehouse of material dealing with Christian personal ethics, sticky theological, and psychological issues germane to one's endeavor to be transformed in Christ. The chapter - "Blessed Are the Peacemakers" - was a particularly definitive study. This book will surely become a Christian classic, paralleling Thomas a Kempis' "The Imitation of Christ." It was a stretching, challenging, and rewarding study for me, and I would highly recommend it for any desiring more reality in their Christian walk. Paul Williams (Drummond Island, MI).
