#61: The Imitation of Christ, Book 3, Part 1, by Thomas a Kempis

The medieval devotional classic continues with a dialogue between Christ and someone trying to be his disciple.

I went and saw Narnia this weekend, so this quote seems appropriate: "It is God’s prerogative to give grace and to console when He wishes, as much as He wishes, and whom He wishes, as it shall please Him and no more." (After all, He isn't a tame lion.)

Here's a link so you can read along with Book Three.
