Thomas à Kempis's The Imitation of Christ is a timeless devotional guide calling readers to a Christlike life, featuring an introduction by Jon M. Sweeney.
One of the most beloved Christian devotionals, The Imitation of Christ was originally written in Latin during the fifteenth century and inspired countless readers to deepen their faith and build a stronger relationship with Christ. Kempis was focused on the contemplative, inner life and his work has been a trusted guide for generations of Christians in their own walks of faith.
In the first two sections of the book, Kempis reflects on the spiritual and interior life, offering wisdom for those seeking to begin their own journey of reflection and contemplation. The final section of the book focuses on two imagined dialogues between Jesus and an unnamed disciple, which illuminate the totality of God’s love and grace.
The Imitation of Christ is part of the Essential Wisdom Library, a series of books that seeks to bring spiritual wisdom—both modern and ancient—to today’s readers. This new edition of the classic text is a must read for seekers and believers alike.
