-Publisher

One of the best-loved spiritual classics of all time is now more accessible than ever thanks to this perceptive and practical commentary by Fr. Dennis Billy! While many contemporary readers seek the richness of classical spirituality, some find the language and thought patterns of The Imitation of Christ distant and difficult to understand. Fr. Dennis Billy, a noted teacher and spiritual guide, helps today?s readers interpret The Imitation by raising their awareness of how the world of Thomas a Kempis colored and shaped his presentation of the spiritual life. Billy highlights how Christians today, who are not living a monastic life but are firmly entrenched in this world, can interpret and apply The Imitation anew. Each chapter is preceded by a brief introduction and followed by a set of thoughtful reflection questions that help readers understand and apply the text. As an additional benefit, the appealing and popular translation of The Imitation by William Creasy is used. Focusing on a single chapter at a time, Billy helps readers appreciate the many ways that The Imitation of Christ is indeed a timeless companion for today?s spiritual pilgrim.

Thomas A'Kempis

THOMAS A'KEMPIS (1380-1471) was a Dutch priest, monk, and writer born in Kempen, Germany. He attended a school near Deventer in Holland. Thomas of Kempen, as he was known at school, was so impressed by his teachers that he decided to live his own life according to their ideals. When he was 19, he entered the monastery of Mount St. Agnes and spent the rest of his long life behind the walls of that monastery. Thomas wrote a number of sermons, letters, hymns, and lives of the saints. The most famous of his works, by far, is The Imitation of Christ, a charming instruction on how to love God. The Imitation of Christ has come to be, after the Bible, the most widely translated book in Christian literature.
