The Imitation of Christ

Thomas a Kempis, Max von Habsburg, The Very Revd. Robert Jeffery

A new translation of one of the best-loved and most important books of Christianity, by the Very Revd. Robert Jeffery One of the most influential and well-loved books of Christianity, The Imitation of Christ is a passionate celebration of God’s love, mercy and holiness, which has stimulated religious devotion for over five hundred years. With great personal conviction and deep humanity, Thomas Kempis (1380-1471) demonstrates the individual’s reliance on God and on the words of Christ, and the futility of a life without faith, as well as exploring the ideas such as humility, compassion, patience and tolerance. Thomas spent some seventy years of his life in the reclusive environment of monasteries, yet in this astonishing work he demonstrates an encompassing understanding of human nature, while his writing speaks to readers of every age and every nation.
