I teach at a small Catholic liberal arts university in the Theology Dept, and for the first time I am using Imitation of Christ as a text for a course. If anyone on this thread has any suggestions/ warnings/ etc., I’d really appreciate it!!
Sounds like a good idea to me. The ideas put forth by aKempis are definitely NOT liberal, but speak to suffering, humility, acceptance of God’s will as well as many other topics.
In the back of my book there are a list of which lessons apply to, for example, Reconciliation, the Institution of the Holy Eucharist, the priesthood, etc.
But I bet you have discovered that.
Students will appreciate the wisdom from 1441 and how apllicable it is to today’s secular world.
