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.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Author Bio

Thomas à Kempis was a medieval monk and priest (1380-1471) who served as chronicler of the monastery at Mt. St. Agnes. During his long life of scholarship, he wrote several biographies of church fathers and a number of devotional works. The Imitation of Christ, from which The Inner Life is taken, remains his most famous work.

    Many years ago I picked up this book. I have read slowly and looking up all the Scripture references. I recently moved and misplaced my copy of the Imitation of Christ. I wanted to read this book because it has caused some reflection on my inner life and how I view my neighbors. You find yourself seeing Jesus in even the most humble everyday tasks. It has helped me be more forgiving of those little irritations that happen when you are surrounded by more people than you may be used to.

    It took some searching to find the classic that had not been dumbed down or shortened. It has been worth the effort because Christian Book Distributors had the Penguin Classic edition I wanted. The only thing I struggle with is the Roman numerals for different Scripture verses. I figure it is good for my brain to have a challenge.

    I recommend this book and encourage you to get the complete edition, you can do it. After all the Lord gave you the ability to reflect on Him and this is a great way to start.
