Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140440275, Paperback)The Thomas à Kempis fan club includes St. Ignatius, Thomas Merton, Thomas More, and even Agatha Christie's Miss Marple. (She reads a chapter of The Imitation of Christ every night before sleep.) Imitation has exerted immense influence on Christian worship, ethics, and church structure, because it gives specific yet broad-minded guidance about the central task of Christian life--learning to live like Jesus. Better to read this book a little here and there, now and then, than to try gobbling it cover to cover. Imitation is no triumph of orderly thinking, but it's a great monument and incentive to deep living. --Michael Joseph Gross

This is a passionate celebration of God and his love, mercy and holiness, which has inspired conversion and stimulated religious devotion for over 500 years. With great personal conviction, Thomas a Kempis demonstrates the individual's reliance on God and on the words of Christ, and the futility of life without faith.
