After the Bible, the Imitation of Christ is the most widely read book in the world and a classic Christian devotional and has taught and inspired generations.
Written five centuries ago by a humble monk between 1420 and 1427, this timeless message of faith in Christ's teachings remains a vital source of spiritual strength for people seeking to follow in the footsteps of the Lord. No book has more explicitly and movingly described the Christian ideal
IN PREPARING this edition of The Imitation of Christ, the aim was to achieve a simple, readable text which would ring true to those who are already lovers of this incomparable book and would attract others to it. For this reason we have attempted to render the text into English as it is spoken today rather than the cloudy, archaic terminology that encumbers so many translations of Christian classics.
There is but one major change. The treatise on Holy Communion, which á Kempis places as Book Three, is here titled Book Four. The move makes the order of the whole more logical and agrees with the thought of most editors.
