The "Imitation of Christ" by Thomas A Kempis needs no introduction. For five centuries it has been the most popular spiritual book second only to the Sacred Scriptures. It presents the fundamental principles of the spiritual life. The Christian soul is invited to follow Christ Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. As we study its contents we are convinced that without that Way there is no going, without that Truth there is no knowing, without that Life there is no real living.
The Confraternity of the Precious Blood feels justified in adding yet another edition to the many that have already appeared. In this day of visual education we have endeavored to pictorialize the sublime truths of the Imitation with an abundance of illustrations. Each chapter has its own illustration executed in expert fashion exclusively for this book by the noted Armenian artist, Ariel Agemian, K.S.G.
