Publisher's Description

The treatise "Of the Imitation of Christ" appears to have been originally written in Latin early in the 15th century. Its exact date and its authorship are still a matter of debate, however the most probable author is Thomas Haemmerlein, known also as Thomas a Kempis.

    I highly recommend this translation of "The Imitation of Christ." It is very easy to understand, unlike some other translations I've read, I keep it on my nightstand to read at bedtime.
