The most popular book in Christianity after the Bible, this treasured classic by Thomas a Kempis has been revised in an easy-to-read edition by Clare Fitzpatrick.

For centuries, the straightforward message has brought peace to millions of readers by showing how to follow the life of Christ, to which we are all called.

To add to the appeal, this volume is enclosed in a burgundy bonded leather cover with a zipper close, set in a larger type, and superbly illustrated. Inside are full color insets with the prayers for the Stations of the Cross and the prayers of the rosary (including the Luminous Mysteries).

    Next to the Bible, it is the most amazing and beautiful book I have ever read. I refer to it often and it is great during Eucharistic Adoration.

    I read this book often. When I feel down or troubled I read this book and it makes me feel better and at ease.
    Every Catholic should get this book and read it.

    It's no wonder sweet St Therese had this with her always. This is a beautiful book & I'm so impressed by the thought put into this updated version. I love that it's leather & zippered, and the larger lettering is so helpful for my late night reading! Thank you & God bless!

    AWESOME! the only thing I will say is that this book not only saved my life, but changed it for the better. wish i read this when I was younger, for things might have been so much different. I love the zipper version for it protects the pages from damage if you are carrying it around. This stands with my Bible, and Liturgy of the Hours

    Very well made did not expect it to a zippered closure. Just the right size to carry in purse or tote. Beautiful illustrations. Very pleased with this product. Your company never disappoints. Good quality items and responsibly priced.
