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.

This new, revised edition features a gold-stamped, bonded leather case with zipper, gilded pages and classic Gustave Doré images from the Life of Christ, making it a beautiful and durable devotional companion.

    A Major Influence on my Conversion

    Posted by George O. on May 24th 2023

    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

    Posted by JULIE R. on Oct 30th 2022

    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.
