Man and woman : a divine invention

Author: Alice Von Hildebrand
Publisher: Ave Maria, FL : Sapientia Press, 2010.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English
Summary:
It is scarcely an overstatement to say that if this book were read, and heeded, by this epoch, the Gadarene Slide on which modern culture finds itself would be halted. In this slender volume we find the authentic vision of what womanhood is. Dr. von Hildebrand takes us to the very substance of the ineffable mystery of gender.--Thomas Howard Best-selling author.

   schema:description "This book is a profound meditation on the superiority of being over bustling, of love over the impress of one's will, and of receptivity to God over what we take to be our creative ingenuity. As such it poses challenges to those creatures we call men and women, but in different ways. Dr. von Hildebrand reminds men that, apart from the genius for the personal and the concrete that women possess, they become the architects of heresy and inhumanity. She reminds women, meanwhile, of their at once humble and high calling to motherhood, physical or spiritual. It is a work steeped in the reverence she enjoins upon us all.--Anthony Esolen Professor of Renaissance English literature at Providence College, Rhode Island --Book Jacket."@en ;
   schema:description "In the fifty years I have followed the teachings and writings of Alice von Hildebrand, I can say that Man and Woman: A Divine Invention is the greatest. You will find in Man and Woman: A Divine Invention fresh illuminating ideas about motherhood, virginity, and the exclusion of women from the priesthood. Every woman should read Alice von Hildebrand's book, and also give it to family members and friends.--Ronda Chervin Professor of philosophy at Holy Apostles College & Seminary of Connecticut."@en ;
