You know Scripture. But are you familiar with the second most popular devotional in Christian history? Except for the Bible, no book has been published and translated more than The Imitation of Christ.
The Imitation was introduced anonymously, in Latin, around 1418. Consequently, through the years, some dispute has arisen regarding its origin. Yet, today, the weight of the evidence supports the conclusion that Thomas à Kempis was indeed its author.
Over the past six centuries, countless Christians have drawn spiritual sustenance from the fount of its wisdom, which flows from the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Still, the meditations from this peerless devotional are surprisingly overlooked in modern times. For that reason, this translation presents a contemporary vocabulary, more updated than has been found in many English translations.
So, it is time for contemporary readers to discover the timeless, Christian classic that previous generations have treasured.
