If you seek Jesus in all things, you will surely find Jesus.
The Imitation of Christ has enjoyed an unparalleled place in the world of books for more than five hundred years. 5000 different editions have been published over the centuries, and it has been translated into almost every language in the world. Thomas a Kempis was a late medieval Catholic monk, a simple man, who looked deeply into what it means to know God and have a relationship with Jesus. He wrote about humility, patience, simplicity, and persistence--virtues that are for every age.
" When I graduated from high school, my pastor gave me a book. The book I received as a gift was The Imitation of Christ. On the title page, he wrote: ' You will have a happy life by adhering to the wisdom in this book.' "
--Br. Benet Tvedten, from the Introduction
Thomas a Kempis (ca.1380-1471) was a German monk and a practical mystic. His classic The Imitation of Christ has long been a favorite of Christians of all denominational backgrounds. It is said that Thomas's book has been the most read of any book other than the Bible.
An inspirational and beautifully written classic, translated into modern, easy to read language.
I have always wished that I could find one that was in hard-back, as well as leather bond that was excellent in quality and priced reasonably.
This book can only deepen the spiritual life of the Christian, especially the Christian who wishes to draw closer to God through Jesus Christ.

Beware! This is not a respected translation. It appears to be a self-published book, and the translator did not even bother to rewrite the boilerplate on the back cover. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Kit G.
