Five-hundred years of prayer offered by Thomas a Kempis. Copies are available in both paperback and hardback. It includes four separate books and the daily reflections which are anywhere from one paragraph to a couple pages long.
Absolutely no flaming! These daily threads are intended to be devotional in nature. If a particular day's offering says nothing to you, please just go on and wait for the next day. Consider these threads a DMZ of sorts, a place where a perpetual truce is in effect and a place where all other arguments and disagreements from other times and places are left behind.
I can attest from personal experience (Salvation's) that reading from Imitation of Christ daily will almost certainly change - not one's faith - but one's perspective of his/her own faith, and open up new vistas in your spiritual life. If - when - this happens to a reader of these threads, and they choose to share what has happened within them - we are treading on hallowed ground. Be respectful.

I just got through reading it. Excellent book.
I believe it was John Wesley who said it was one of the most influential books in his life.
If you have a ping list for this please add me to it. I have used The Imitation many times over the years as part of my daily devotions.
Great, great book. A deeply profound Christian treatise.
I’ve never read this. I’ll be one of your daily readers. Thanks for your time and effort.
