The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a' Kempis is a favorite book of Catholics throughout the world. It speaks to the soul of every true Christian, reminding us of the fleeting nature of earthly joy as opposed to the eternity of happiness with God. This new edition from TAN Books preserves the original language with added desirable features including a durable bonded leather cover with zipper, gilded pages, and many beautiful illustrations. The translation, by Bishop Richard Challoner, is an inspiring rendition from the original Latin.

|Review:||I bought my edition of the above book in 1948 and it is still in excellent condition even though I have read it many times. I was a new Catholic at the time and I enjoyed it so much. I hope others will get out of it as much as I did in my spiritual journey.|
