Thomas à Kempis

Imitation of Christ

Imitation of Christ

A new, beautifully laid-out pocket edition of Thomas à Kempis's classic Christian devotional work, The Imitation of Christ. Originally written in medieval Latin c. 1481-1427, The Imitation of Christ is one of the most enduring works of late medieval Christian piety and remains ] the most widely read Christian devotional after the Bible. Divided into four books and dozens of bite-sized subchapters, The Imitation of Christ focuses on providing practical and spiritual advice for cultivating an interior life that mirrors the virtues of Jesus Christ. This edition is based on the English language translation by William Benham (1831–1910).
