This book is one of the clearest ways to attain sainthood. It contains step-by-step instuctions on how to walk in the shoes of Christ.


Good reading

by robertr on Dec 8, 2011

I would recommend this book to all Catholics, as it tells of the way we should be living while awaiting the second coming of Christ. I read a little from it each night as I go to bed.


No Words For This Book!!

by heavenbound on Feb 17, 2011

This book is one of a kind, second ONLY to the bible. It's very profound and reaches your innermost being. I had to be at the right time in my life to appreciate and totally enjoy this book. In short, anyone who doesn't come in contact with this book has lost a great deal. Also, on this book site, it's cheap and plentiful!!


awesome insight

by FreeInJesus on Feb 16, 2009

In the mid 1400's when this book was written, everyone in Christendom was Roman Catholic. Consider that this book was instrumental in John Newton's and John Wesley's conversions. We can sift out the legalistic toned doctrine since we are informed. Overall Kempis has awesome insight to the man Jesus and our walk as a pilgrim and follower of Jesus.
