Perhaps the most widely read Christian devotional work next to the Bible, The Imitation of Christ is a handbook for spiritual life. This religious classic, by Thomas Kempis, arose from the Devotio Moderna movement, of which Kempis was a member. It was first composed, in Latin, during the early part of the fifteenth century, and has been a source of peace and wisdom for Catholics around the world ever since.
Kempis' work is divided into four books: "Helpful Counsels of the Spiritual Life", "Directives for the Interior Life", "On Interior Consolation" and "On the Blessed Sacrament". Deeply spiritual, it teaches us how to better live the life of a Christian by closely following the example of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
This edition is cloth-covered and includes sections on the Rosary and the Stations of the Cross. It also features full color illustrations.
