Reading this book has been a most enjoyable journey; I'll miss it. I've always loved Imitation of Christ and until I encountered this book, I thought I knew Thomas à Kempis. Consolations is a more intimate glimpse into the soul of this great mystic and lover of Christ and as such, only left me wanting to know them both more. MOST highly recommended!
