The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis Ave Maria Press
This classic is meant to accompany a person on his or her spiritual journey through life but it is not altogetherr comforting. A Kempis discusses, it is not easy to follow the Cross and it can mean endurance and suffering. However, it also brings the 'peace beyond understanding'. This little book is full of wisdom, such as the importance of avoiding becoming emotionally or spiritually dependent on other people, avoiding gossip and idle chatter and being a busybody. Love, humility, solitude and calmness are all essential themes.
Parts of this book were written specifically for those in orders. Sometimes, they are still useful, however.
I received this free ebook from Net Galley in return for an honest review.
