How Jesus Wants Us to Live.
Described by the 'Encyclopedia Britannica' as, next to the Bible, "the most influential work in Christian literature", 'The Imitation Of Christ' was written by a nearly anonymous monk more than 500 years ago. In a familiar, even colloquial tone, this powerful book illuminates the true Christian path by revealing how Jesus guides us to live through his words and his deeds.
Each of the four short treatises - on the spiritual life, the interior life, the consolation within, and the sacrament of the altar - describe lovingly and simply how to seek Christian perfection. Presented in an elegant gift edition, William Griffin's interpretive rendering is accessible and relevant to our daily lives, while remaining faithful to the intent of the original text.
