Publisher's Summary

Thomas À Kempis' collection of meditative writings from the Brethren 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 like Jesus is the central task that À Kempis explores in this classic devotional. "The religious who concerns himself intently and devoutly with our Lord's most holy life and passion will find there an abundance of all things useful and necessary for him. He need not seek for anything better than Jesus." This book provides comfort and counsel to every person who seeks to live a more connected and whole life.

difficult to follow

The reader here speaks in a very unnatural tone and is very difficult to follow. statements and questions sound the same, and sentences have pauses every few words when there should be no pauses. I found myself daydreaming and rewinding often, due to the nature of the tone

Whispersync with kindle version

There are MANY versions of this book on Amazon and hear on Audible. This is the only version I could find that allowed the whispersync connection with amazon. So it is the Dover thrift edition on Amazon and the audio narrated by pj Ocklan. I that think it is incredibly helpful to be able to go between the audio book and the kindle book. This is not a book you will only read once. It is more of a devotional that you can fruitfully read over and over again. So have the ability to switch between audio and print is priceless.
