Publisher's Summary

Thomas à Kempis' collection of meditative writings from the Bretheren of the Common Life is the most widely read book in the world after the Bible. The reflective devotions have been a heartening friend to great men such as Thomas More, St. Ignatius Loyola, Thomas Merton, Pope John Paul I, and John Wesley.

Learning to live live Jesus is the central task that A. Kempis explores in this classic devotional. This book provides comfort and counsel to every person who seeks to live a more connected and whole life.

reads too fast

the narrator really has to read slower. not a good listening to for contemplating. but the content is nice. the way it is delivered isn't.

Poor narration

This book is a great work, but I had to stop listening to the poor narration.

The Truths (with capital T) about living within and without

Listening to this book has been the best thing I've done for myself. I only wish I had known about it earlier. The content boils down to two timeless teaching which is also the principle and foundation for spiritual exercise: to praise, love, and serve God and others.
I highly recommend this book.

I need to listen to this one over and over and over

I have read the hardcopy book twice. Having now listened to the book being near rated I absorbed so much more. I will need to continue to listen to this over and over to grow as much as possible in this great teaching.

My life will never be the same

This book is one that must be read. Read it and then re read it and then re read it at another point in your life. It will forever change your walk with God, Jesus and the Blessed Mother Mary, the Saints all the Angels.

Great... Listening to it again!

This was very easy to listen to and great to listen to during moments alone, allowing for a time of reflection. The narrator made it easy to listen to without any unnecessary dragging at a good speed.

Good devotional

This is a wonderful and old devotional work for any Christian, new or old. It does suffer from a few faults marking its age such as outdated words and being male oriented, but these are things common to all older works and should not be held accountable for them. I do believe that, overall, this is the best Christian devotional there is.
