Thomas A. 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.

The Imitation of Chirst

  • Book Rating: 2/5

I returned this audiobook before completing it. It is not a novel-story time of audio book. It did not hold my interest. I listen to my audio books as I take a half hour walk each AM. On a positive side, it is loaded with wonderful information.

better as daily devotional

Excellent set of tapes to listen to and start each morning. It is filled with insightful and thougt provoking wisdom that has come down from the ages and will help to make you a better person. There are 5 cds and it is long but well worth it. Very inspiring and a GREAT SUPPLEMENT to the greatest book ever written (THE BIBLE).
