Publisher's Summary

First published anonymously in 1418, Thomas à Kempis's The Imitation of Christ is a classic Christian devotional work that has been read through the ages by such notable figures as Sir Thomas More, John Wesley, and Pope John Paul I. A meditation on spiritual life, it offers instructions for renouncing worldly vanity and discovering eternal truths with the goal of living out the teachings of Jesus by taking inspiration from his life. More widely read and more influential than any spiritual work except the Bible, The Imitation of Christ has offered guidance and solace to people of all faiths since its publication and retains its power today. This edition is the translation by the Reverend William Benham.

Excellent devotional book

This one will push you to do better. It is tough, but we need tough in this area. Although there are times during the book I want to go looking for a hair shirt. It is that tough.

Truly inspirational

I was introduced to Audible by a friend who was so impressed with the quality. My first purchase was Imitiation of Christ because as a child I remember my mum reading it to me. I am so thrilled with the purchase.



The narrator's voice is not the same as my mum's but the messages are just as powerful.



I am looking forward to making many more purchases...Thanks Audible.



Great job.
