Product description


After the Bible, this is one of the most widely read books in the Christian world. It faces the temptations and difficulties of daily life, but also describes the joys and helps which are found on the way.

From the Back Cover

'The Imitation of Christ' is one of the most widely-read books in the Christian world, having appeared in thousands of editions since it was first written in the fifteenth century. Its diverse appeal arises largely from the lucid style and psychological insight of its author, Thomas á Kempis.

The book describes the way of followers of Christ as they learn to mould their life to the pattern set by Christ. Intensely practical, it faces the temptations and difficulties of daily life, but also describes the joys and helps which are to be found along the way. For Thomas á Kempis, Jesus is no distant historical figure, but is vividly real, actively helping the Christian's spiritual life to grow.

'Very ably translated into modern English…direct, simple conversion emphasises the unpretentiousness and practicality of the 15th century manual of Christian experience.'

'The Imitation is an inspired work and has been a spiritual guide to people in all walks of life'.
