After the Bible, The Imitation of Christ is the all-time favorite book of Catholics throughout the world. And of the English editions, none can equal this inspiring translation by Bishop Richard Challoner.
This book speaks to the soul of every true Christian, reminding us of the fleeting nature of earthly joy as opposed to the eternity of happiness with God.
The guide of the saints since it first appeared in 1418, it was the sole spiritual reading of St. Therese of Lisieux, who loved it and knew it by heart.
Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange asserted that the true mysticism of which it speaks is accessible to all, if they are willing to follow the way of humility, the cross, continual prayer, and docility to the Holy Ghost.

The Imitation Of Christ
A wonderful, instructional book on how to become a better Christian. I love the size of the book and especially the zippered version. The quality of It's construction is great. My version includes a cross on the cover below the title.
A Major Influence on my Conversion
A beautiful book, both physically and in regard to prose, the TAN books version of The Imitation of Christ is the first book I picked up when exploring my faith and seeking for the essence of Catholicism. I could not have had a better catechesis! This book changed my life and brought me into the fold of God. May God bless TAN books and may the Holy Spirit fill them in their work.
Beautiful Message in a Beautiful Book
In a world that seems to be embracing ugliness this book is a refreshing breath of fresh air. The binding, zipper and golden edges are truly lovely. The content is even better. This is a must have for any Catholic collection. In fact, The Imitation of Christ was St. Therese;s go to for spiritual reading. Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Let us flatter our Lord, but moreover, let us read this book and embody it message so we can love him better each and every moment of our lives.
