Overview

Clarence Enzler—author of the multi-million copy seller Everyone's Way of the Cross—guides readers in prayerful conversation with Christ wherein the reader is personally addressed as "my other self" and is urged to embody Christ's love and compassion to others.

Modeled on the fifteenth-century classic The Imitation of Christ, this new edition of a little-known Enzler masterwork is revived for modern Christians. This new edition includes an introduction from the author's son, Msgr. John Enzler, pastor of the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Washington, D.C.

In this intimate guide to the spiritual life, Christ speaks directly to the reader, whom Christ admonishes to be his presence of love and service in the world. Through this creative mode of dialogue, Enzler leads the reader through the journey of the Christian life, beginning with the call to live in friendship with Christ and fulfill Christ's desire. He then examines the means of the Christian life: detachment, virtue, prayer, avoidance of sin, and the Eucharist. Finally he explores the goal of the journey: a life of union with Christ as his disciple and complete joy with him in eternity. Each chapter is divided into short, eloquent sections based on scripture and with beautiful prayers for meditation. These convenient divisions make the book ideal for use as a daily devotional, or a guide to prayer.

"When a spiritual book that is more than fifty years old is still full of profound and challenging spiritual insights, it tells us very much about the deep faith and wisdom of the author. Clarence Enzler's work has touched many lives and brought many people closer to the Lord. It still has the power to do that; it is still a book to be read with reflection and profit today." —Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, Archbishop Emeritus of Washington

"Ave Maria Press has done all of us a great service by bringing back into print Clarence Enzler's My Other Self. It is a rich vein of lived spirituality that reflects a life of growing into Christ. Each page, whether reflecting on the call to oneness with Christ, the means by which we achieve this end or the final goal itself, offers the reader penetrating insight, uncompromising challenge, and gentle encouragement. Written from the heart, it has the power to touch the heart. I enthusiastically recommend My Other Self as a companion on life's journey with Christ." —Most Reverend Donald W. Wuerl, S.T.D., Archbishop of Washington

"Clarence Enzler's classic speaks a language of devotion and faith that is ever new. Read it and live a change of heart—an entry into the life of Christ and the fulfillment of the life you most hunger to live." —Timothy P. Shriver, President, Special Olympics

"Modeled on the fifteenth century classic, The Imitation of Christ, My Other Self presents Christ speaking intimately to the heart of his disciple. Deeply biblical and rooted in the tradition of the Church, the book is a practical guide for Christian living in the contemporary world. Like the original, it would make a wonderful companion for prayer." —Thomas P. Rausch, S.J., Loyola Marymount University
