Best spiritual devotional  Jun 9, 2008
I give this book out to graduating college students. I consider it to be a wonderful spiritual devotional for them.
 
Imitate Christ by living a spiritual life  May 18, 2008
This wonderful book was written by the priest Thomas a Kempis in the 1400's and is very reminecient of the Apostle Paul's writings by encouraging readers to live a simple spiritual life. It recommends that peace is found in the heart of the humble and that in overcoming the ego you overcome the world. Joy is found in a quiet conscience and you are only happy when you have done what is right. This may also be the original source of the advice to choose the less of two evils. It also warns that pleasure and desire carry the seeds of sorrow. This book is spiritual focusing on living the inner life and not getting entangled with the world. A must read for all Christians or anyone on a spiritual path.
 
Timeless Reflections  Jun 27, 2002
Thomas a Kempis lived in a world torn asunder by the Plague, political upheaval, and deep crisis in the Church-a world perhaps not so different from ours. Thomas chose to leave his embattled world for the monastery and devote his life to God. Escapism? Retreat? Hardly. Thomas shows us with great pain, passion, and eloquence how monastic life is the ultimate battle, that between the spirit and the flesh, with stakes no less than one's eternal salvation. "Imitations" teaches us how to be humble before God and each other, and how to live in a manner pleasing to God. It offers up devotional prayers that help us move toward a real and meaningful relationship with Jesus. And in Book Four, it provides profound reflections on the Eucharist that, for Catholics, take this Sacrament to a whole new level of significance, mystery, and beauty.

In many ways the book is not comforting, for it offers no easy answers. Instead, it challenges us to look at our thoughts and actions with utmost clarity and honesty. This is neither easy nor comfortable, but in the end, our only road to peace. Thomas's writing has certainly stood the test of time. After over five hundred years, his words still ring true, and loudly.

 
Among the Top 10 Spiritual Books of All Time  Nov 27, 2001
This is one of the best spiritual exercises in history, especially for teachers, students, theologians, missionaries, and anyone involved in teaching of any sort. Thomas' words provoke deep thoughtfulnes and concern in ones sprituality, and remind us to be vigilant in our service to the Truth.
 
Not for Everybody, perhaps for Nobody  Sep 10, 2001
I found the first third of the book fairly good, but then in speaking about God the author switches from the third person to the first person, i.e. he begins to assume the voice of God himself. Even though I have attended charismatic churches where "prophesies" are not uncommon, I felt disturbed by the author's presumption. I must remind myself of the fact that the one common element in every Christian cult throughout the centuries has been the introduction, in addition to the Bible, of other authoritative literature presuming to speak on behalf of God. Another troubling aspect of the book is the anti-intellectual stance it takes with references not to rely upon reason. A warning flag should go up in everyone's head when this type of appeal is made. There are other devotionals that are better and safer reading than this one.
