Thomas à Kempis was a German-Dutch priest who authored The Imitation of Christ in the mid-fifteenth century. The book has become one of the most widely read devotional works among Catholics, a spiritual guide with an emphasis on the interior life and a devotion to the Eucharist.
The Imitation of Christ is organized into four "books" consisting of short chapters. Book One is "Useful Admonitions for the Spiritual Life". Book Two addresses "Considerations for Leading an Interior Life". Book Three is "On Interior Conversation", and Book four is entitled, "On the Blessed Sacrament and Devout Exhortations for Holy Communion."
This revised, easy-to-read edition is printed in a prayer book size edition. Readers can immerse themselves in the peace and wisdom that have comforted Catholics from around the world. The Imitation of Christ shows how to better live the life of a Christian by closely following Christ's example. This edition also includes sections on the Rosary and the Stations of the Cross, illustrated in full color.
