Used Book Finds: Of the Imitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis

Standard

   I read somewhere that this is one of Jose Rizal’s (Philippine national hero) favorite books.  Loved by Catholics and Protestants alike, this devotional, throughout the centuries brought guidance and inspiration to countless people. I used this devotional maybe 3 years ago and find Thomas A Kempis meditation something profound. As if this book carries you to a secluded place, all alone with your Bible. Some commented that it has a sort of Catholic mysticism that a reader should be cautious about. This edition, published by Pivot Paperbacks 1973. You can find devotional books at BookSale ((a second hand/used book store in the Philippines) for a very cheap price. Just be patient in flipping and digging.

Anyways, what’s your favorite devotional book and why? Love to read it on the comment.
