No one would dream of scaling a mountain without an experienced guide, writes Alice von Hildebrand, and no one should try to ascend the mountain of holiness without the help of someone...who points out the dangers that threaten to jeopardize our ascent towards the mountain which is Christ. In Dietrich von Hildebrand (1889-1977) we encounter a guide intimately familiar with the self-deceptions and illusions that seem to defeat even our best-intentioned efforts to become St. Paul's new man. Von Hildebrand's narrative resounds with the authority of experience, yet never distracts with anecdotes or anachronistic examples. For von Hildebrand, our spiritual journey begins with an unqualified readiness to change (we should be like soft wax, ready to receive the imprint of Christ). In passages laced with scriptural references, he indicates a practical path of contrition, self-knowledge, simplicity, contemplation, humility, and, ultimately, freedom in Christ. The book's serene, timeless quality becomes all the more remarkable given that its chapters were composed during the author's uncompromising public campaign against Nazism, which ended with an attempt on his life and his escape to America. 515 pp. Nearly as new--previous owner name scratched out on first free endpaper. Text otherwise as new.
