share on Facebook


by Thomas À Kempis
320 pages, Hardcover
This edition has been freshly re-typeset from an older, traditional edition and printed on high quality, acid-free paper. The cover is bound in genuine, highly-durable, leather with beautiful ornamental gold blocking on the front and the spine.

Translated from the original Latin by the Right Rev. Richard Challoner, D.D.

The most popular religious book - after the Bible - ever written, is presented here in its best known English translation: that of the Venerable Richard Challoner (1691 - 1781), Vicar Apostolic of the London district in penal times, and perhaps the greatest English Catholic figure of the eighteenth century.

A work of spiritual devotion - its purpose is to instruct the soul in Christian perfection with Christ as the Divine Model. It consists of a series of counsels of perfection written in a familiar and even colloquial style, and is divided into four parts/books:

1. Useful Admonitions for a Spiritual Life
2. Admonitions Concerning Interior Things
3. Of Internal Consolation
4. Of the Blessed Sacrament

Size - 4" x 6". Hardbound (dark-brown real leather) with silk ribbon marker.
