Publisher's Description

One of the best-loved books of Christianity after the Bible, now in a new translation
 
A passionate celebration of God and his love, mercy, and holiness, The Imitation of Christ has inspired conversion and stimulated religious devotion for more than five hundred years. With great personal conviction, the medieval monk Thomas à Kempis demonstrates the individual’s reliance on God and on the words of Christ, and the futility of life without faith. Thomas spent some seventy years of his life in the reclusive environment of monasteries, yet in this astonishing work he demonstrates an encompassing understanding of human nature, and his writing speaks to readers of every age and every nationality.
