About this item
Written by Thomas à Kempis in the Middle Ages, The Imitation of Christ has been revered for nearly six centuries as a spiritual classic. St. Thomas More, the great Renaissance scholar and martyr, considered this devotional one of the most important books for a Christian to own. Indeed, it has been translated into several languages and handed down for generations among the faithful.
Now comes a beautiful new illuminated edition for today's readers. With lovely detail work and famous icons on nearly every page, this book will engage the reader deeply and invigorate his prayer life.
A physical treasure full of spiritual riches, The Imitation of Christ offers a complete education in the interior life and the spiritual transformation from worldliness to godliness. With the help of these meditations, enter the mystery of the Trinity and embrace the joys of life in Christ.
PLEASE NOTE: Book IV: Of Devout Exhortation to the Holy Communion — Actually Book III in the original, it is generally treated, for thematic reasons, as the 4th. Because it stands alone, we, like many other publishers of the book, have omitted it in ours.
