Description:  Quality Hardcover Christian Classics at Paperback Prices. Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471) was a monk at Mt. St. Agnes in the Netherlands. Thomas worked principally at copying and writing. A number of his treatises on the monastic life and little devotional essays have been translated into English including the great devotional work The Imitation of Christ (c.1427).

"This is not everyone's favorite, but its on everyone's list. This is the most widely published and read book on spirituality in our tradition. It is amazing how well its medieval monkishness carries over into the modern world. When Dag Hammarskjold was killed in an airplane crash in Africa, the books found in his briefcase were the Bible and The Imitation."
Eugene Peterson, from his book Take and Read

Next to the Bible itself, The Imitation of Christ is the most-published and most deeply cherished book in any language. For nearly 600 years, these thoughtful meditations on Jesus's life and teachings offer practical guidance on the central task of the Christian life: learning day by day to live like Jesus. This modern translation is direct and concise, yet retains a deep devotional flavor.
