Thomas was a author and scribe who devoted his life to public ministry. He copied the Bible no fewer than four times and one of the copies is preserved at Darmstadt, Germany.

He is best known for “The Imitation of Christ.” A Christian book on devotion.

This book has been published more often and read more widely than any other book in history except for the Bible.

Amazing.

Grace to you.

About bshiveofhope

I have worn different hats and travelled down many bunny trails in life- custodian, writer, florist, grandma, community nurse, mom, wife, Jesus Girl. With these vocations have come many stories and life experiences that I want to share with you. They're not all warm and fuzzy, and are sprinkled with humility, and sadness. That's life. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
