DIETRICH VON HILDEBRAND (1889-1977), born in Florence, was the son of renowned German sculptor Adolf von Hildebrand. A leading student of the philosophers Edmund Husserl and Max Scheler, he took up the -great questions---about truth, freedom, conscience, community, love, beauty--with a freshness that allowed him to break new ground, especially in ethics, but also in epistemology, social philosophy, and aesthetics. His conversion to Catholicism in 1914 was the decisive turning point of his life and the impetus for important religious works. His opposition to Hitler and Nazism was so outspoken that he was forced to flee Germany in 1933, and later across Europe, finally settling in New York City in 1940, where he taught at Fordham University until 1960. He was the author of dozens of books, both in German and English. He was a major forerunner of Vatican II through his seminal writings on marriage, on Christian philosophy, and on the evil of anti-Semitism.
JOHN HENRY CROSBY (b. 1978), is a translator, writer, musician, and cultural entrepreneur.

Excellent Spiritual Reading May 16, 2007
Dietrich Von Hildebrand's "Transformation in Christ" is probably one of the best modern works on the Spiritual Life. I have heard it compared to the "Introduction to the Devout Life" by Saint Francis de Sales, and I know that Pope Pius XII called von Hildebrand the 20th century Doctor of the Church. If you are looking for a book to really grow closer to Christ, this is it.
