The Imitation of Christ
Full Product Description
The Imitation of Christ is one of the great classics on spiritual devotion. It has been influential since it was first written over five centuries ago, with people such as John Wesley and John Newton profoundly touched by it at their conversions. Written by a German monk, it is essentially a manual on the pursuit of holiness and deep communion with God, with its key theme that the study of Jesus is the Christian's highest ideal.
Thomas a Kempis (c.1380-1471) was a German religious writer who entered the Augustinian convent of Agnietenberg in 1400, and lived there for seventy years until his death.
The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a' Kempis was published by Hodder & Stoughton in August 2009 and is our 18148th best seller. The ISBN for The Imitation of Christ is 9780340980163.

The Imitation of ChristSimon Iredale, via The Good Book Stall
The influence of The Imitation of Christ, certainly in Western Christendom, is difficult to overestimate. Perhaps one reason for this is the writer’s essentially practical focus. One feels as if we are in the presence of a kindly guide who not only understands the frailty of our human nature, but shares it. With other spiritual works, one often has the impression that we are striving to breathe an atmosphere to which our spiritual ‘lungs’ will never be adapted. Not so here. Profoundly rooted in scripture and the sacraments this is a book which defies the years and speaks freshly to each new generation.
