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.
As part of the TAN Classics Deluxe Set, this beautiful and timeless edition is fitting for the timeless and profound wisdom found in its pages. With a deluxe leatherette hardcover, a satin ribbon, golden gilded edges, reinforced sides for longevity, smyth-sewn binding, and gold foil, this edition of The Imitation of Christ will both enrich your soul and beautify your home.
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 Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, who loved it and knew it by heart.
Father Garrigou-Lagrange asserted that the true mysticism of which The Imitation of Christ 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.
