Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy has translated Thomas à Kempis' highly popular devotional work, The Imitation of Christ. The classic text focuses on the interior life of a Christian and calls him to withdraw from the world. Don Ranson's performance is smart, deliberate, and formal. Listening to his deep voice, with its relaxed pacing, is a soothing experience. Because Ranson gives feeling to the words he speaks, the work's profound advice and life questions come to life; Kempis' pivotal 15th-century text maintains the gravitas it deserves.

    "Inspiration for today's world"
    Would you listen to The Imitation of Christ (Logos Educational Edition) again? Why?

    yes. Thomas a Kempis wrote a series of short "chapters" which each either teach a lesson or remind us of goals we strive for. This translation and narration gently share these thoughts in a thoroughly approachable format.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The translation seems so approachable for the average person in the 21st century vs. a religious person from a monastery in the late middle ages. As such, it helped me apply the original author's advice to my own life and times.


    Have you listened to any of Don Ranson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't but I think he does a very nice job of balancing feeling with clarity. It's not over the top but it makes each point warmly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hmmm. "Imitation of Christ"? Many many times. :-)


    Any additional comments?

    This is just a great self help book. With this translation, it's easy to see it that way. There are some points that apply more to people under religious vows but recognising that, advice for those situations can still be applied to our daily public lives.
