Product Description

William Creasy's version of The Imitation of Christ is more than a new translation of a timeless work. It's a re-creation of a 560-year-old classic that infuses it with life and meaning for contemporary readers. Working from the 1441 autograph manuscript, Creasy succeeds in creating a dramatically different interpretation of The Imitation by working through its historical, cultural, and linguistic contexts. Creasy's faithful translation provides the reader the opportunity to discover the most widely published book after the Bible, a book that offers new insight and deeper understanding with each reading.

    I am compelled to write after reading the only other review of this particular translation of the Imitation. I bought this book back in 1998 & read it every day for years, buying several other translations later. Frankly, I am STUNNED that anyone could NOT like this translation. I've given it away as a gift more than once, & quote it ALL the time. It is totally "readable" & understandable. Right now, I'm reading the Hendrickson Christian Classics version, which is equally as good (& only half as expensive!). In fact, I'm fixing to buy 5 as Christmas gifts. Thanks for letting me express my opinion, which is BUY THIS BOOK! Merry Christmas!

    The Imitation of Christ, a Christian classic, was written between 1420 and 1427 by an Augustinian monk named Thomas Kempis. This book is actually four books combined into one, and is written in a devotional like style. Each chapter of each book deals with a different topic, pushing the reader to examine his or herself in light of the instruction given. The first two books deal with a persons view of the world and his or her personal humility and integrity. The following two books are set up in a unique way in that they are laid out in dialog format. The two books are written simulating conversations between Jesus and a struggling Christian, known in the book as the disciple. When reading this book, two over arching themes are dominate, asceticism and Roman Catholicism.
