Written by the Augustinian monk Thomas à Kempis between 1420 and 1427, it contains clear instructions for renouncing wordly vanities and locating eternal truths. No book has more explicitly and movingly described the Christian ideal: "My son, to the degree that you can leave yourself behind, to that degree will you be able to enter into Me."

    Wonderful book, but not this e-edition

    This book has over a hundred chapters by topic but this particular edition doesn't include the table of contents! Your nook will only list the "go to" chapters by number and you'll have no idea what the topics are. I'm sharing this so that others don't waste their money. It's unfortunate this information isn't available until you purchase a non-refundable ebook.

    The gift of the cross

    This is the only book I can truly say changed my life. I have bought multiple copies and given this best of gifts--understanding of the sufferings of life, thereby eliminating not the actual suffering, but the RESENTMENT of the suffering. The trials and tribulations we all endure are the 'way of the cross'-the true imitation of Christ. Thomas-a-Kempis makes clear the distinction between Christianity that seeks only after the GLORY of Christ vs. the loving acceptance of the CROSS of Christ. He points out real circumstances of suffering that the true Christian is likely to experience as he/she follows the 'royal road'. What a wonderful comfort his words bring during tribulations--it makes all the difference in living through those hard times that may turn out to be the holiest of opportunities--the opportunity to imitate Christ.

    The Immitation of Christ- an underappreciated work

    I received the Immitation of Christ by Thomas Kempis about 20 years ago, while converting to Catholicism. The book basically gathered dust for 15 years until, strangely enough, I became a Methodist. For many years I dismissed it as a 'Catholic' book, and in a sense it is. Not 'Catholic' pertaining to the denomination, but 'catholic' in the sense that it is universal. The basic truths found page after page are like little jewels. I would highly recommend this book to any Christian, or to those who would like to be.

    In Search of Spiritual Growth

    A must for daily reflection and spiritual growth. Creasy divides A'Kempis 13th century guide into sections dealing with contemporary issues. Most unique is the dialogue between Jesus and the reader. It is the type of book one picks up, reads a passage, closes the book and reflects on the contents of the passage. I highly recommend it.
