tom kruse5 Stars Out Of 5March 7, 2008tom krusethis is awesome, and like a previous reviewer, i have given this away as a gift and those i gave it to, have the same reaction that i have.
Marlo5 Stars Out Of 5December 4, 2006MarloI 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!
P. Chase Sears1 Stars Out Of 5January 2, 2006P. Chase SearsThe 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.
