 Our Description

"There is no better edition of this classic, than this careful and insightful volume." —Michael Downey, editor, The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality Published in over 6,000 editions before the twentieth century, this classic work has been called "the most influential work in Christian literature," "a landmark in the history of the human mind," and "the fifth gospel." Now and for the first time comes an exhaustive edition that is bound to become a classic in its own right. Fr. John-Julian introduces Kempis and his Imitation in ways that will shock many who have read the book before. For example, Protestant devotees to the book may be astounded to discover that Thomas was not only a Roman Catholic but an ardent traditionalist contemplative monk, as well. Catholic readers may be amazed to discover that he was a radical moral reformer and part of a group twice formally charged with heresy. Notes and introductions to every aspect of the Imitation open up the meaning of it to the next generation of readers. "Renowned for its simple and practical approach to the Christian spiritual life, The Imitation of Christ has been treasured by countless generations. In our own day, there is no better edition of this Thomas a Kempis classic than this careful and insightful volume." -Michael Downey, editor, The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality
