Self Esteem without Selfishness: Now Available!

Nov. 11, 2013, at 1:58pm

The book I translated two summers ago (and wrote about here) is finally available, from Scepter, as both a "real" book and an ebook.    In English, it's called Self-Esteem Without Selfishness: Increasing Your Capacity for Love and can be ordered here (or, as they say, wherever fine books are sold).  Much wisdom from Dietrich von Hildebrand, Edith Stein, C. S. Lewis, and other luminaries, and many valuable, original, and strikingly practical insights from the author, Fr. Michel Esparza.

And more good news: it looks like the English translation will now be used as the basis for a Dutch edition!

This is not official, but Scepter is hoping to have my translation of this book (about which more here and here) out by January 1st, 2013.

Love and Self-Esteem: English translation in progress

Jun. 12, 2012, at 4:24pm

Good news!

Amor y Autoestima, the book that inspired this post on how to reconcile rightly ordered self-love with Reality-respecting humility, will soon be available in English.  I'll be translating it from the Spanish this summer, and it will be available from Scepter sometime thereafter.

As I was flipping through it before my first reading, I couldn't help noticing the footnotes.  Listen to this: C.S. Lewis, Edith Stein, Dietrich von Hildebrand, Leo Tolstoy, Bl. John Paul II, Gabriel Marcel, St. Josemaria Escriva, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Paul Vitz, Sigrid Undset, John of the Cross, and Victor Frankl.

I hope that whets your personalist appetite as much as it did mine!
