  • "For the past five hundred years, Thomas a Kempis "imitation" has been a source of spiritual instruction for Christians of all denominations. At the time of his death in 1957, Knox was working on this translation, which he intended to be as direct and colloquial as the original Latin. It was completed by Michael Oakley, who also contributed a note on the method followed in the translation."
  • "Originally written in 1441, The Imitation "offers profound insights into a person's relationship with God."--Title page verso."

  • "The Imitation of Christ has enjoyed an unparalleled place in the world of books for more than five hundred years. 5000 different editions have been published over the centuries, and it has been translated into almost every language in the world. Thomas a Kempis was a late medieval Catholic monk, a simple man, who looked deeply into what it means to know God and have a relationship with Jesus. He wrote about humility, patience, simplicity, and persistence--virtues that are for every age."@en
  • ""Why is this little book so valued? The Imitation of Christ transcends its era and author, having become a testament that speaks to the perennial human condition on the issues of our human relationship to God. It offers insight that is unparalleled in works before and since. The wisdom of Thomas a Kempis is for every age, for every person who seeks to live a more integrated spiritual life of seeking and finding, doing and being still." -- from publisher's website."
  • "This classic, second only to the Bible for religious instruction and inspiration, has brought understanding and comfort to millions for centuries. Written in a candid and conversational style, the topics include liberation from worldly inclinations, preparation and consolations of prayer, and the place of eucharistic communion in a devout life."@en
  • "Thomas ̉Kempis' masterpiece, completed in 1427, shows the way by which the faithful may follow Christ's teachings."
  • "This pastiche of biblical and Catholic passages attributed to a humble scribe remains the most influential of Christian devotional writings."
  • ""Is it possible for the average believer to truly imitate Christ? Such is the question posed by the 14th century monk in this compelling collection of short devotional thoughts. Thomas a Kempis focused on the themes of love, mercy, and the holiness of God with the hope of helping believers understand the importance of following in the footsteps of Christ. Writing of our need for a dependence upon our Creator, a Kempis reveals the emptiness of a life lived apart from the ultimate source of truth, while exhorting the Christian to seek happiness in knowing and serving God." -- From inside jacket cover."
  • "It is a little Bible that describes true Christian ideals love by both Roman Catholics and Protestants. Kempis has commented on the worldly preoccupations i.e. lust, ambition, corruption, vanities that prevent us from the eternal truth of Heaven and Divine."
  • "This is an electronic edition of the complete book complemented by author biography. This book features a table of contents linked to every chapter.

  • "Kempis, a 15th century Augustinian monk whose entire life was devoted to the pursuit of communion with God, meditates on a number of themes, at the heart of which is renunciation of the world in favor of a Christ-centered existence. This is an influential piece of Christian writing with resonance for anyone on a spiritual path."
