Advice to young readers

Although the experience of moving directly from The Imitation of Christ to a volume of essays by Adorno may seem interesting, I do not recommend it.

I don't think there's any danger that I'll ever juxtapose those two works.... but out of curiosity, how was Imitation of Christ?

It's worth a read. Much of it pertains specifically to the monastic life, but the majority is relevant to Christians in all professions. Extremely high view of the Eucharist, which I appreciate.

I'm surprised you haven't read it - you're the mediaeval philosopher, not me!

Do you own a copy, or did you borrow it?

I own a copy. You're welcome to borrow it, if you so desire.

I do! Thanks. :)
