This book has taught me much about the development of the soul and the importance of living a humble life.

This book is one of the best books that I've read in a while. It reasons with philosophy from a religious perspective. I'm not a religious person and I appreciate his views on morality and life. So far, it's second only to Seneca.

This wonderful book was written by the priest Thomas a Kempis in the 1400's and is very reminecient of the Apostle Paul's writings by encouraging readers to live a simple spiritual life. It recommends that peace is found in the heart of the humble and that in overcoming the ego you overcome the world. Joy is found in a quiet conscience and you are only happy when you have done what is right. This may also be the original source of the advice to choose the less of two evils. It also warns that pleasure and desire carry the seeds of sorrow. This book is spiritual focusing on living the inner life and not getting entangled with the world. A must read for all Christians or anyone on a spiritual path. This book is really a remake of the classic "The Imitation of Christ" without the last two chapters of Book III and it does not contain Book IV Sacraments of the altar. I personally think that it does not take away from the book and more condenses it to Kempis's best work of his first three writings that apply more to common people.

If you're thinking about buying this book, you ought to know that this isn't really a full-length book, it's actually an excerpt from "Imitation of Christ" by Thomas a Kempis. I think it's really deceptive for the publisher to take a piece out of a Kempis' book (I doubt a Kempis would have approved), change the title, and market it as a new book ("hey, maybe we can get people to think it's actually a new book instead of just an excerpt!").

Don't buy this book, buy the full-length one, which is superb (see my review of it). Shame on the publishers for their deceptive advertising... especially since this is a book about imitating Christ. How ironic - in a sick sort of way.

This is the most inspiring book I have ever studied. It is excelliantly written & arthor persuades you to get not only mentally involved but involved deep in your heart.

I picked up my first copy of this book at a used book sale. I intended to send it to a friend, but ended up keeping it for myself. St. Thomas a Kempis has given us so much wisdom on the inner-life. A great spiritual read.
