The Imitation of Christ is meditations on the life and teachings of Jesus.
Written by Jesuit Ignatius of Loyola, this book is about spiritual exercises. The context of this work is that Catholics belief that works accumulate to possibly save a person’s soul, so that is the idea of the work.
The American Church Dictionary and Cyclopedia
By WIlliam James Miller
First published in 1901. The Preface explains: “The writer of the following pages has long been convinced, from an experience of many years in the Ministry, that a great desideratum among Church people is a Church Dictionary, especially one not so expensive as the more costly works, and at the same time something more complete and satisfactory than a mere glossary of terms. What seems to be needed is an inexpensive, handy volume, “short enough for busy people, plain enough for common people, cheap enough for poor people,” yet complete enough to give the information needed. The present work was undertaken with this object in view.”
