Item description for The Imitation of Christ (Hendrickson Classics) by Thomas A. Kempis...

Offering several meditations on Jesus' life and teachings, this work provides practical guidance on the central task of the Christian life: learning day by day to live like Jesus.

Publishers Description
"This is not everyone's favorite, but its on everyone's list. This is the most widely published and read book on spirituality in our tradition. It is amazing how well its medieval monkishness carries over into the modern world. When Dag Hammarskjold was killed in an airplane crash in Africa, the books found in his briefcase were the Bible and The Imitation."
--Eugene Peterson, from his book Take and Read
Next to the Bible itself, The Imitation of Christ is the most-published--and most deeply cherished--book in any language. For nearly 600 years, these thoughtful meditations on Jesus' life and teachings offer practical guidance on the central task of the Christian life: learning day by day to live like Jesus. This modern translation is direct and concise, yet retains a deep devotional flavor.
Every Christian library needs the classics--the timeless books that have spoken powerfully to generations of believers. Now Hendrickson Christian Classics allows readers to build an essential classics library in affordable modern editions. Each volume is freshly retypeset for reading comfort, while thoughtful new introductions place each in historical and spiritual context. Attractive, classically bound covers look great together on the shelf. Best of all, value pricing makes this series easy to own. Planned to span the spectrum of Christian wisdom through the ages, Hendrickson Christian Classics sets a new standard for quality and value.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Imitation of Christ (Hendrickson Classics)?

Imitate Christ by living a spiritual life  May 18, 2008
This wonderful book was written by the priest Thomas a Kempis in the 1400's and is very reminecient of the Apostle Paul's writings by encouraging readers to live a simple spiritual life. It recommends that peace is found in the heart of the humble and that in overcoming the ego you overcome the world. Joy is found in a quiet conscience and you are only happy when you have done what is right. This may also be the original source of the advice to choose the less of two evils. It also warns that pleasure and desire carry the seeds of sorrow. This book is spiritual focusing on living the inner life and not getting entangled with the world. A must read for all Christians or anyone on a spiritual path.
Humble beginnings  Aug 8, 2007
A great book for those who have never understood humility. As great as this book is, it reflects little of an understanding of what might be called 'the apprehended grace of God'. Lots of "I am so terribly unworthy". Very little of "I am so profoundly grateful for the grace of God by which I am worthy in the eyes of the Father'. Don't get me wrong, this book is a gem, and of profound value to all Christians. A lot of so called Christians seem to never have experienced anything even close to mindset of unworthiness from which they were "saved" (and if so, what were they "saved" from?). This book might get some folks on their knees asking God to teach their hearts a humility, as displayed in this book, that they missed out on.
