Thomas a Kempis was not a haphazard follower of Jesus. The depth of his masterpiece mirrors the life of a man who did whatever was necessary to imitate his own Savior. A Kempis lived as intentionally as he wrote. We must turn away from the things of this world, we must live sacrificially, we must be inundated with Christ's passionate teaching, and we must pray to be removed from distraction.<BR><BR>A classic in every state of the word, <EM>The Imitation of Christ</EM> places the fruit of one man's single-minded devotion to God's calling on his life within the reach of every reader. May we all commit to be this effective in our emulation of Jesus.  <BR><BR>Moody Classics<BR>Of all the factors influencing our spiritual growth and development, pivotal books play a key role. Learning from those who have walked the path and fought the fight brings wisdom and strengthens resolve. And hearing the familiar chords of kingdom living sung by voices from other times can penetrate cultural barriers that limit our allegiance to the King. To this end, Moody Publishers is honored to introduce the first six volumes in what is to be an ongoing series of spiritual classics. Selected for their enduring influence and timeless perspective, these new editions promise to shape the lives of spiritual pilgrims for generations to come.

Classic
5 stars By Aussieguy, Jul 06 2012
Thomas a Kempis' Imitation of Christ is a classic and well worth frequent  reference. It is a book to be dipped into to savour the wisdom and good advice and reflection it gives and also is easy to search for a reference to a particular difficulty. Highly recommended.
