About the Author

Thomas a Kempis (ca. 1380-1471) was a German monk and a practical mystic. His classic The Imitation of Christ has long been a favorite of Christians of all denominational backgrounds. It is said that Thomas's book has been the most read of any book other than the Bible. Father John-Julian, OJN, is an Episcopal priest and monk. He was the founding Dean of the Seminary of the Streets in New York and served as Director of the Social Service Institute which trained social workers for the State of Connecticut. In 1985 he founded the contemplative, semi-enclosed monastic Order of Julian of Norwich in Wisconsin which incorporates both monks and nuns with equal status under the same traditional vows.


"If you have yet to drink deeply from the wisdom in these pages, The Complete Imitation of Christ removes any excuse for further procrastination. Thomas offers his readers the chance to probe the depths of their spirituality and reminds us that even our well-intentioned oblations remain stained with selfishness unless we constantly seek to root out our egocentrism and pursue the very heart of God. Make no mistake, this text was written for monks by a monk, but with a little help from Friar John-Julian, its challenges remain potent and relevant for everyone who will take the time to hear them." --Brandon D. Waite, Englewood Review of Books
