    " I enjoyed this work a lot more than I thought I would. It is now on the list of books I intend to reread every year. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philippa | 2/8/2014

    " Over the years, when I sense I've lost focus this is the book I tend to go back to "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daniel | 2/1/2014

    " I did read it ages ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J. Alfred | 1/29/2014

    " This book very much deserves its reputation as a Christian devotional classic. It is simple but profound, humble but challenging. It is, in short, a beautiful work, and you should read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elise | 1/24/2014

    " It would be difficult to overstate the impact this book has had on me. Yes, it's really, really Catholic. Yes, it's ascetic. No, it's most definitely not pro-woman. Even so, I think Jesus meant it when he said to deny ourselves and take up our crosses daily but mention that to a modern evangelical and watch them recoil in horror. This little book calls the reader to a life of intensity and discipline in following Christ. It's not comforting or particularly warm and it makes no accommodations. You need to do that yourself. it took me 4 years to finish this book because every passage is so incredibly rich that I couldn't take in too much at any one time. Honestly I can't even recommend it to very many people because it's so hard core. If you're a nominal Christian who likes feel-good sermons and that book about the little boy who goes to Heaven, bless you but skip this one. Try Dennis Okholm's "Monk Habits for Everyday People" if you want to get all monastic but think denying yourself means not sleeping in on Sunday. I'm serious, it's a good book. I think I gave it 4 stars. But if you're 100% serious about following Jesus, if knowing God is the highest priority in your life, if you get the concept of willingly plucking out your eye to keep yourself out of Hell, then get this book and read it slowly and carefully. There's a lot of chaff, let that go but hold on tightly to the wheat. It will nourish you. "

    " Excellent devotional book. I love the interaction between the disciple and Christ. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stevie | 1/12/2014

    " Focused on solitude, virtue, and discipline. Peculiar mention of purgatory and void of evangelism "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A. M. | 1/9/2014

    " My favorite book for everyday spiritual reading. Simple, but inspiring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mat Rueter | 1/8/2014

    " That love is an excellent thing, a great good indeed, which alone maketh light all that is burdensome and equally bears all that is unequal. For it carries a burden without being burdened and makes all tha which is bittersweet and savoury. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Steinbeck | 12/22/2013

    " Probably the most influential Christian writing in my life, second to the New Testament. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 12/17/2013

    " This is the perfect book to keep around when you have a few minutes to read since each section is about 2 small pages. This book illuminates troubled areas in a person's life and points them to Biblical wisdom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha | 11/15/2013

    " I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about following Christ....a really good read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skidmorerackliffe | 5/25/2013

    " I am reading this slowly. Its great for a few minutes of devotional thinking each morning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim George | 3/28/2013

    " Okay, supposedly in the classics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K.M. Weiland | 2/21/2013

    " Beautiful look into the life of faith. Surprisingly down to earth and accessible. Something worth reading on every single page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron Lohrbach | 10/13/2012

    " The Bearing of the Cross of Jesus Christ is a honor and is very humbling to say the very least. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacie | 10/2/2012

    " I am never finished with this book, it is an on going read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian Guy | 7/22/2012

    " A classic of Christian Spirituality that I read some years ago and couldn't get into. Perhaps I should try again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Bennett | 5/6/2012

    " Sets forth an example of one possible way to live a life. A good example. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacob | 8/29/2011

    " Many books refer to this book or quote directly from it. So, i was really looking forward to reading this. The first few chapters were inspiring, but the rest of the book was somewhat disappointing. The author is repetative which gets old pretty quickly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gordon | 5/7/2011

    " "Stay humble." That is the overwhelming message of this middle ages classic. Despite its brevity, it is still too long for its message. But it is worthwhile to read at least in part, because staying humble is an excellent message for a Christian to consider. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mateus | 4/18/2011

    " Most certainly the second best book.
    It remains constant as a psychological mediator and spiritual catalyst. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 4/16/2011

    " Excellent book.. This is a book that will be read many times over--at least various parts of it.. It helps remind me/us what is important in life.. Again, excellent book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sister Pam | 3/20/2011

    " Put this classic next to your Bible and read from it daily. These inspiring and humble words may be read over and over and never become dull. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Civirginia | 2/21/2011

    " Despite some medieval Roman Catholic theology, this remains a marvelous call to know God and imitate Christ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 1/24/2011

    " Beautiful devotional book focused on humility and sacrificial love. Truly captures the spirit of the Gospels. "
