Product Description

Dietrich von Hildebrand, widely regarded as one of the great Catholic philosophers of the 20th century, is well-known for his numerous books, but, until this present work, little has been known of his remarkable and inspiring life. Written by his wife, Alice, also a highly respected Catholic thinker, this biography is a fascinating, moving and, at times, gripping account of a truly great man of the Church who suffered much for the faith. Based on a very long "letter" Dietrich wrote to his wife Alice late in his life, the book tells his story - the unique intellectual and cultural formation of his youth, his conversion to Catholicism, his great passion for truth and beauty, his extensive writing on Christian philosophy and theology, up until the time von Hildebrand's opposition to Nazism made him a marked man and he was forced to escape to the United States. A powerful biography of a relentless fighter against injustice, a devoted son of the Church, a man who had the "soul of a lion".

Publisher's Description

Dietrich von Hildebrand, widely regarded as one of the great Catholic philosophers of the 20th century, is well-known for his numerous books, but, until this present work, not much has been known of his remarkable and inspiring life. Written by his wife, Alice, also a highly respected Catholic thinker, this is a fascinating, moving and, at times, gripping account of a truly great man of the Church who suffered much for the faith. Based on a very long "letter" Dietrich wrote to his wife late in his life, it tells his story from his glorious youth with a unique intellectual and cultural formation, his coversion to Catholisism, his great passion for truth and beauty, his extensive writing on Christian philosophy and theology, and his steadfast, determined opposition to Nazism that made him a marked man who miraculously escaped execution. A powerful biography of a relentless fighter against injustice, a devoted son of the Church, a man who had the "soul of a lion." Illustrated.
