IMITATION OF CHRIST by Thomas a Kempis
For more than five centuries, The Imitation of Christ has been acclaimed by people of every faith and belief as one of the greatest spiritual writings of all time. Next to the Bible, probably no other work has been so widely read nor has had such influence. Through periods of peace and war, pestilence and plague, panic and depression, good times and evil, The Imitation has provided inspiration and food
for spiritual strength and consolation for people of every creed.
Written by Thomas a Kempis with the avowed intention of pointing the way by which all would be able to follow Christ's teachings and by so doing to imitate His life, the timeless message of the humble monk is as inspiring in our tempestuous era as the day it was written. Ever new because it is perennially Christian, it is old with the wisdom
of Christianity as it proclaims the everlasting truths of the Church.
