Great Confirmation Gift!

Review: I bought several of these to give as Confirmation gifts. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the book for the price. The paper is a better quality white paper, and the textured hardcover and binding are of nice quality. There are both black and white as well as color illustrations. Thank you!

the best one by far!

Review: This is the best format for the Imitation of Christ. I bought other such books for friends made by different publishers but this one is the best one by far. I would recommended this red book to anyone. Best Uses: My own book; Cons: Can't think of any cons; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Easy To Read, Engaging characters

I would buy this product again and again

Review: I love the book, but it has a flaw - the cover is upside down from the book - to open the book so it is right side up, you must turn the cover upside down and backwards - I was going to return it for a replacement, but I love the contents so much, once I opened it, I couldn't bear to part with it for even a day. Now I just smile at the imperfection - if you were to send me another (perfect) one, I would then send my flawed copy back to you! Sincerely, Virginia Herm Best Uses: Older Readers; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Informative, Well Written

An amazing and heartfelt book

Review: I have this book among a couple of others to always read if I am waiting in line, at Drs. ofc. or in the car...I read it often at home also. We need more of these wonderful books to bring people back to God. Best Uses: Everyone, Will bring closer to God; Cons: Not long enough; Describe Yourself: Avid Reader, Collector; Pros: Classic, Heartwarming inspiring

Every Catholic should have this book!
