the most widely read spiritual book next to the Bible itself, The
Imitation of Christ is a
time-tested handbook for those seeking to be conformed to Christ
Jesus. Readers through the centuries, including saints from Thomas
More to Therese of Lisieux, have expressed their gratitude for this
astounding work of Thomas a Kempis. With its chapters, “Admonitions
Useful for A Spiritual Life,” “Admonitions Concerning the Inner
Life,” “Internal Consolation,” and “Concerning the Blessed
Sacrament,” this 15th
century classic outlines clear directives for renouncing worldly
conceits and discovering eternal truths. Perhaps no other book has
more clearly and effectively described the Christian ideal: “My
son, to the degree that you can leave yourself behind, to that degree
will you be able to enter into Me.”
