It is a little Bible that describes true Christian ideals loved by both Roman Catholics and Protestants. Kempis has commented on the worldly preoccupations i.e. lust, ambition, corruption, vanities that prevent us from the eternal truth of Heaven and Divine. It clearly renounces the worldly vanities and aspires for the eternal truth. Inspirational!

Стр. 117 - In the Cross is salvation ; in the Cross is life; in the Cross is protection from enemies. In the Cross is infusion of heavenly sweetness; in the Cross is strength of mind ; in the Cross is joy of spirit.
Стр. 330 - Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Стр. 294 - If thou wilt be My disciple, deny thyself. If thou wilt possess a blessed life, despise this present life. If thou wilt be exalted in heaven, humble thyself in this world.

Об авторе (2006)

Thomas à Kempis was born at Kempen, Germany in 1380. He attended Deventer in the Netherlands where he eventually joined the Canons and was later ordained as a priest. His most well-known work is the Imitation of Christ. It has been acclaimed as one of the greatest spiritual writings of all time. For some time there was some dispute as to the title's authorship. He died July 25, 1471.
