Summary

Thomas à Kempis' collection of meditative writings from the Bretheren of the Common Life is the most widely read book in the world after the Bible. The reflective devotions have been a heartening friend to great men such as Thomas More, St. Ignatius Loyola, Thomas Merton, Pope John Paul I, and John Wesley.

Learning to live live Jesus is the central task that A. Kempis explores in this classic devotional. This book provides comfort and counsel to every person who seeks to live a more connected and whole life.

Poor narration

This book is a great work, but I had to stop listening to the poor narration.

The Truths (with capital T) about living within and without

Listening to this book has been the best thing I've done for myself. I only wish I had known about it earlier. The content boils down to two timeless teaching which is also the principle and foundation for spiritual exercise: to praise, love, and serve God and others.
I highly recommend this book.

I need to listen to this one over and over and over

I have read the hardcopy book twice. Having now listened to the book being near rated I absorbed so much more. I will need to continue to listen to this over and over to grow as much as possible in this great teaching.

reads too fast

the narrator really has to read slower. not a good listening to for contemplating. but the content is nice. the way it is delivered isn't.

Great inspirational book to worship The LORD Jesus

Encouraging and inspirational if you understand that God has done something for us, Jesus died for us; and secondly God has done something to us, we were crucified with Christ. Both justification and our sanctification are based on finished work Christ on the cross. We are saved by Grace through faith and not of works lest any man should boast.(Eph 2:8-9). As you listen, please remember that you are accepted in the beloved Christ. You can not evoke from God higher favour by your commitment or by your devotional life. Dearly beloved, I urge you, please do not turn your sanctification into works of legalism, but rather use this book to receive the full release of what God has already given to all of us by faith through Jesus Christ on the cross.

Great... Listening to it again!

This was very easy to listen to and great to listen to during moments alone, allowing for a time of reflection. The narrator made it easy to listen to without any unnecessary dragging at a good speed.
