Overview

Hailed as "Christianity's second bestseller," The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis is made accessible to the modern reader in condensed and accessible form. This attractively redesigned edition of True Serenity presents the wisdom of à Kempis's fifteenth-century classic in a month's worth of daily devotions.

So many in our culture are looking for "spiritual teachers" today. Mere repetition of formulas is no longer enough to feed our hungry souls. Here is solid, traditional, and yet revolutionary spiritual teaching from the ages! As with all great wisdom, you will find yourself saying, "I knew that . . . but I never heard it said so well, and I did not fully know it until this saint said it!"

These are glorious little books—concise and attractively designed! Distilled from the most influential writings in the Christian tradition, these pocket-sized books help you feel like you're having an intimate conversation with a wise counselor, a holy friend, or a beloved mentor. Give yourself a few minutes a day and let these holy men and women lead you to a closer relationship with the God who wants to be closer to you.
James Martin, S.J.
Author of My Life with the Saints

The 30 Days series shows how surprisingly similar the struggles and frustrations of these teachers are to our own daily challenges and distractions. Their wisdom also reminds us that daily challenges bring opportunities for grace and invite God to be part of our day. These spiritual teachers can help us to turn prayer into conversation with God, and the most mundane occasions becomemeetings with God in our neighbors.
Dr. Carolyn Y. Woo
Dean of Mendoza College of Business, University of Notre Dame
