Originally published anonymously in the early 15th century, The Imitation of Christ is probably the most widely read and influential spiritual book after the Bible. Emerging from the 14th century religious movement Modern Devotion (Devotio Moderna) of which author Thomas á Kempis was a member, this spiritual classic is a meditation on the spiritual life.
While first intended as an ascetic work for young monks in training, its keen sense of human nature addresses the spiritual journey of every Christian. For over 600 years, this timeless work has reached the hearts of both saints and sinners. Probing questions about the meaning of life and showing how to live out the teachings of Jesus, The Imitation of Christ has inspired religious devotion and conversion. Encouraging the renunciation of worldly vanities and vices, Thomas á Kempis shows us how to lead a disciplined life characterized by simplicity, humility, and charity. His practical and wisdom-filled insights guide us in our spiritual growth and aspiration to eternal life.
This beautifully bound edition contains the unabridged text of the four books of The Imitation of Christ and Useful Admonitions for a Spiritual Life, Admonitions Concerning the Interior Life, Interior Consolation, and The Sacrament of the Altar and translated by Sr. Mary Nazarene Prestofilippo, FSP. These books are broken down into chapters, each of which is followed by a prayer and reflection to apply the reading to everyday life. A helpful appendix is also included, offering reading suggestions organized by reader type and subject matter.
