If a man tells you that he is fond of the Imitation, view him with sudden suspicion; he is either a dabbler or a saint...Heaven help us if we find easy reading in the Imitation of Christ (Ronald Knox)
None, I believe, except the Bible, has been so universally read and loved by Christians of all tongues and sects (Thomas Carlyle)
The most influential devotional book in Western Christian history (Professor John van Engen)
If you seek Jesus in all things, you will surely find Jesus.
The Imitation of Christ has enjoyed an unparalleled place in the world of books for more than five hundred years. 5000 different editions have been published over the centuries, and it has been translated into almost every language in the world. Thomas a Kempis was a late medieval Catholic monk, a simple man, who looked deeply into what it means to know God and have a relationship with Jesus. He wrote about humility, patience, simplicity, and persistence--virtues that are for every age.
" When I graduated from high school, my pastor gave me a book. The book I received as a gift was The Imitation of Christ. On the title page, he wrote: ' You will have a happy life by adhering to the wisdom in this book.' "
--Br. Benet Tvedten, from the Introduction
