I am so sorry to have kept you in the dark about my latest book project. I can finally unveil the cover and title: The Imitation of Christ: Classic Devotions in Today’s Language. Here’s an excerpt from the book from Worthy Inspired:

      Because The Imitation of Christ has had a most profound effect on my spiritual life, I am pleased to offer this updated version arranged for devotional reading. I have carefully updated William Benham’s 1874 translation with modern and inclusive language that remains faithful to the original message. I have arranged the passage in a systematic order and added biblical passages which introduce and reinforce the theme of each chapter.

      I pray this edition of the classic work will provide a new generation of readers the life-changing message of The Imitation of Christ.

You can currently read daily one-line excerpts on Facebook and Twitter.

It releases January 12, 2016, but you can pre-order the hardcover today!
Amazon
Barnes & Noble

A leather edition will be available in time for Christmas 2016.

I am so excited! But most of all, I am so grateful for your prayers over the months I have been working on this book and your continued prayers that it will indeed change lives. (Click to read the many ways this book has already been a bit miraculous and read a sample chapter.)

    I’m so glad to see this! I have been reading “The Imitation of Christ” daily as a devotional, and I love it, but I agree that the translation is in bad need of updating to modern English.
