THE IMITATION OF CHRIST by Thomas à Kempis

"The more humble and obedient to God a man is, the more wise and at peace he will be in all that he does."

'The Imitation of Christ' is one of the best known Christian books on devotion. Through its realistic delineation of the complexities of human existence, and in its soul-building optimism about the benefits of aspiring to a Christ-shaped life, 'Imitation' clearly deserves the accolade of "Spiritual Classic." Although written early in the fifteenth century, the many short meditations that comprise this work remain strikingly fresh and relevant for modern readers.

"Religion's second-best seller."

-- Walter Elwell, describing 'The Imitation of Christ' as second only to the Bible in sales and popularity among religious readers.


THE CONFESSIONS OF ST. AUGUSTINE Translated by E. B. Pusey

"You are my Lord, because You have no need of my goodness."

Designed to show the details of the soul's progress, from enjoyment of the beauties outside itself to a study of its own nature and finally to joy in the knowledge of God, 'Confessions' by Saint Augustine, was the first work in literature to be concerned entirely with an introspective analysis of the author's own spiritual and emotional experiences. Its original title was "Confessions in Thirteen Books," and it was composed to be read out loud with each book being a complete unit. The work outlines Augustine's sinful youth and his conversion to Christianity. It is widely seen as the first Western autobiography ever written, and was an influential model for Christian writers throughout the following 1,000 years of the Middle Ages.


JESUS THE CHRIST James E. Talmage

Elder Marion G. Romney said, , "One who gets the understanding, the vision, and the spirit of the resurrected Lord through a careful study of the text Jesus the Christ by Elder James E. Talmage will find that he has greatly increased his moving faith in our glorified Redeemer."


THE BOOK OF RUTH

The book of Ruth is one of the most moving accounts in the Bible, a story of love and loyalty that is a stark contrast to today's cynical, throwaway society. This short book, only four chapters, shows how God uses people in amazing ways.


HOW TO BECOME LIKE CHRIST by Marcus Dods

Marcus Dods was a minister of the Free Church of Scotland (1843-1900) and noted Bible scholar. Christians have rediscovered this short but moving devotional in the digital age and have found it a rich, inspired guide in their daily quest of striving to be more like Christ.

About the Author

Thomas à Kempis, C.R.S.A. (Thomas van Kempen or Thomas Hemerken or Haemerken, litt. "small hammer"; c. 1380 - 25 July 1471) was a German canon regular of the late medieval period and the most probable author of The Imitation of Christ, which is one of the best known Christian books on devotion. His name means "Thomas of Kempen", his hometown, and in German he is known as Thomas von Kempen.

Augustine of Hippo (354 -430), also known as Saint Augustine or Saint Austin, was an early Christian theologian and philosopher whose writings were very influential in the development of Western Christianity and Western philosophy. He was bishop of Hippo Regius (present-day Algeria) located in the Roman province of Africa. Writing during the Patristic Era, he is viewed as one of the most important Church Fathers in the West. Among his most important works are City of God and Confessions, which continue to be read widely today.

James Edward Talmage (September 21, 1862 - July 27, 1933) born in Hungerford, Berkshire, England, was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1911 until his death. He was the author of several religious books including The Articles of Faith, The Great Apostasy, The House of the Lord, and Jesus the Christ. These volumes remain in print and are still widely read by Latter-day Saints. Other books include treatises on the origins of the Book of Mormon, a dictionary of the Book of Mormon, and a brief history of Mormonism.
