Recognized as a modern spiritual classic this sublime and practical study, perhaps Dietrich von Hildebrand’s greatest work, 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; 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—a challenge to every serious Christian to put these teachings into practice.
