 General 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."  Contains photographs.of the Church in the 20th century. Alice von Hildebrand has done a great service in giving us this fascinating portrait of his extraordinary and inspiring life"
- Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the

"A man whose life and work have left an indelible mark on the history 

"Alice von Hildebrand has made us a wonderful gift.  Little was known of her husband's remarkable life.  This book tells of an exceptional personality, richly gifted, a convert to Catholicism, a fighter for justice and right who determinedly opposed Nazism."
- Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, Archbishop of Vienna
