Overview The writings of Thomas a Kempis have been widely read by people the world over. His wisdom will always speak to each new generation. Here is a new version of The Imitation of Christ in a contemporary style that will make the sense for today's Christians.

Anyone seeking a deeper relationship with the Divine, and those who have previously set aside The Imitation of Christ because they could not grasp its meaning will be sure to appreciate Finley's straight-forward approach and uncomplicated style.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Heart And Soul of Imitating Christ: A Fresh Look at the Thomas a Kempis Classic?
I really understand now 'The Imitation of Christ!' Jun 29, 2007
I often tried to read the original "Imitation of Christ" but felt it better suited to the monks of a monastery in Thomas a Kempis' time. Mitch Finley put it in words that I can relate to in my everyday life. It now has meaning for me, not just an old classic that got lost in ages past. He brushed off the cobwebs and let the Light shine forth.
"The Heart and Soul of Imitating Christ" is a book that can be read and reread because it is in words I can relate to and shows how to know and live Christlike. I highly recommend it as a great way to meditate. It's like a breath of fresh air!
