The Imitation of Christ

by William C. Creasy, Thomas à Kempis

William Creasy's version of The Imitation of Christ is more than a new translation of a timeless work. It is a re-creation of a 560-year-old classic that infuses it with life and meaning for contemporary readers. Working from the 1441 autograph manuscript, Creasy succeeds in creating a dramatically different interpretation of The Imitation by working through its historical, cultural, and linguistic contexts. For Creasy, Thomas à Kempis offers profound insights into a person's relationship with God, helping us better understand why it has been the most important work of Christian devotion for over 500 years.
