The book that has made more saints than any other, after the Bible.
Countless saints from Thérèse of Liseux to Ignatius of Loyola have kept this book on their nightstands, used it to direct their minds during adoration, and carried it in their pockets as a soldier carries his weapon into battle.
This classic and treasured edition, aptly entitled My Imitation of Christ, is crafted specifically for the busy person in the modern world. Here’s why it is “My” Imitation of Christ:
- Pocket Size: Perfect for purse, pants or jacket. Having this book on your person reminds you to imitate Christ always – without exception.
- 117 Illustrations: With seemingly miraculous power, Ariel Agemian’s timeless depictions of modern man (in suit and tie) carrying his cross, tempted by Satan to vain pursuits but called by Christ to eternal life. Your soul will be forever imprinted by an image of man’s attempt to be in the world - but not of it.
- Durable Flex Leatherette Cover: far more resilient than your average book. If you use this book properly, it will take a beating.
- Reading Guide: In the back, 42 practical topics with references to guide you through your spiritual reading. Ex.: “Are you discouraged? Read Book III, Chap. 56” “Are you vain? Read Book I, Chap. 2, 7.” With over 40 of these, you’re bound to find yourself somewhere.
- Index: Not your everyday index. Hundreds of topics with every reference in the book cited. Here are your answers to nearly every spiritual issue – if you use it.
If you wish to be in the world, but not of the world, there is no better edition of this timeless classic than My Imitation of Christ.
A portion of the proceeds from every purchase of this Confraternity of the Precious Blood title go directly to The Sisters Adorers of the Precious Blood in Brooklyn, NY to support them in their vocation.

If youre older or with marginal eyesight? The print size is challenging. Id suggest a larger print but for a pocket size this is very nice.
