Imitation of Christ, Thomas Kempis


I hope someone can help.
I would like to get this book but there are quite a few translations into “simple english”, any advice?? I am leaning toward

Imitation of Christ
**by: **Kempis, Thomas A. with Croft, Aloysius
ISBN: 0486431851
Publisher: Dover Publications (09/03)
Language: English

It looks like an easy read

Thanks in advance,


The CA Book Club read Imitation of Christ for our first discussion. Posting for that discussion are here:
Book 01: Imitation Of Christ
The version that I used (along with the e-links) was Of the Imitation of Christ (Vintage Spiritual Classics) by Thomas Kempis. I bought this translation a couple years back due to the ease of reading.
