"Before there were marketing phenomena like the Purpose-Driven Life and
The Prayer of Jabez—each selling millions of copies—there was a little
devotional book that went through 6,000 editions and spread all across
the world. It was written by a monk in 1418 and centuries later played a
significant role in the conversions of both John Wesley and John
Newton—and no doubt in the salvation of many thousands of others we will
not know until we are in heaven.
"The amazing thing is that The Imitation of Christ by Thomas á Kempis,
featured in the latest edition of Ken Boa’s “Great Books Audio” series,
has as much for us to gain from it today as it ever has in history."
