Book Review

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).

Students of Christian personalism generally and of Hildebrand in particular will find the recent publication of a new edition . . .

—Alice von Hildebrand

"Here we do not concede one square millimeter of territory to falsehood, folly, contemporary sentimentality, or fashion. We speak the truth, and let God be our judge. . . . Touchstone is the one committedly Christian conservative journal."
