Details

The Imitation of Christ by Thomas á Kempis is a favorite devotional book throughout the world. It speaks to the soul of every 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 traditional language with added desirable features including a durable bonded leather cover with zipper, gilded pages, and many beautiful illustrations. Translated from the original Latin by Bishop Richard Challoner.

 

About the Author: Thomas á Kempis was born at Kempen, Germany, circa 1380. After joining the monastery of Mount St. Agnes in 1406, he received Holy Orders and busied himself with prolific writing and copying work. His books include the well-known Imitation of Christ, Life of Geert Groote, and Life of Liduina of Schiedam. He also possessed an earnest love for the poor and Holy Scripture. Thomas á Kempis died on the twenty-fifth of July, in 1471.

Review: This is the first edition I purchased and it is far superior the the other edition which I also purchased. This version uses classical English: Thee, Thou, Thine, etc. The printing plates are also from the original artist. This an outstanding edition of this great work; I highly recommend it.

Review: These were the third and fourth books of this title. I have one for myself and one each for my grandchildren's Confirmations and one for a convert who is entering the Church this Easter. Hope that they like them as much as, I like mine.

Imitation of Christ with personalization and zipper closure


By:
Review: Having purchased a personalized copy of the Imitation of Christ for myself, and seeing how beautiful it turned out, I ordered one for a friend's son for his confirmation. I love the gold lettering and the fact that this book has a zipper closure, to hold any notes or holy cards forever intact. This gift is sure to never disappoint. Thank you for offering such a beautiful book.

Review: The leather covering is really quite nice and my friend who became Catholic was delighted. I would like to suggest; however, that the engraving be printed a little smaller as the letters were quite large. thanks for the wonderful book.

...very impressed to one who isn't easily impressed!

Review: ...I've had many various copies of this classic...this one is my new fav for sure! Obviously the text is off the charts...but this has astonishing artwork with the covers...and the zippered leather exterior...off the hook! I love it...

Review: I purchased this book for a friend's 89th birthday. She has many religious books, but didn't have this book. She is excited about reading it, but is a bit worried about the old English.

Review: I find that The Imitation of Christ provides the path to understanding many aspects of my faith in a comfortable, comprehensive manner. I find that when I read but a couple of passages, but seek to dwell on them to understand them fully, I tend to face my day in a more relaxed, serene way. I feel that I gain much from it's use and am very pleased that I have it as a faith resource.

Review: I ordered the leather zippered cover of The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis. It was a gift for my adult son's Confirmation; I also had it personalized. The quality was superb and was received in a very timely manner. Thank you.

Not what I expected

Review: I love this beautifully bound leather edition of Kempis' spiritual classic. It is small enough to carry around with you. I keep it in my bag so I can read and meditate wherever I am.

The Imitation of Christ

Review: If I had known that it was in traditional language I never would have ordered it. Big mistake, since I had it engraved. It is a gift for an R.C.I.A. candidate and although the leather cover looks good, you know (can't judge a book by it's cover. However, I do have my copy of Imitation of Christ in everyday normal English and it is a treasure, too bad for my friend.

Review: This is a beautiful little book. I love that it zips closed because I often have a prayer card or two to mark my place and the zipper keeps them from falling out. It is short and easy to carry in my purse for a quick read when I'm having to wait for something. The words are very inspiring and lend themselves to reading a few lines and contemplating what you've read. Would make a great gift too.

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.
