Worship Becomes Us

Liturgy and Personality
by Dietrich von Hildebrand

Hildebrand Press, 2016 (orig. pub. 1932)
(160 pages, $17.99, paperback)

Dietrich von Hildebrand was a giant. In the realm of Christian ethics and devotion, he is known for his perennial Transformation in Christ. In the realm of political action, he fought Hitler by running an anti-Nazi journal from Austria, at one point topping Hitler's list of political enemies. In philosophy, he articulated a compelling vision of Christian personalism, alongside thinkers like Max Scheler, Karol Wojtyła (Pope John Paul II), and Edith Stein (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross).
