Product Description

In this classic work from Brother Lawrence, a humble monk who spent much of his time in the kitchen, the secrets of moment-by-moment fellowship with God are revealed. Full of honest simplicity, he shows that it's possible to meet God among the pots and pans - in the ordinary events of life. As a young man, Brother Lawrence (1611-1691) fought in the Thirty Years' War before joining the Carmelite order. Immediately after his death, The Practice of the Presence of God was compiled from his letters and conversations. This edition, rendered from the original French into graceful, contemporary English, will nourish and delight all who seek to know and love God more intimately. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

The original guide to "practicing the presence of God"

 
  "We must not grow weary of doing little things for the love of God, who looks not on the great size of the work, but on the love of it."
 

In this classic work, which has instructed and inspired millions, a humble 17th-century monk reveals the secrets of daily, moment-by-moment fellowship with God. "In the way of God, thoughts count very little," writes Brother Lawrence, who spent much of his monastic life in the kitchen. "Love does it all." Full of realistic honesty, friendliness, and simplicity, Brother Lawrence shows that it is possible to meet God amongst the pots and pans—in the ordinary, daily events of life. This edition, rendered from the original French into graceful, contemporary English, will nourish and delight all those who seek to practice the presence of God.

Author Bio

Brother Lawrence(c. 1611 – 1691) was born Nicholas Herman in the Lorraine region of France. As a young man, he fought in the Thirty Years’ War before joining the Carmelite order in Paris as a monk at the age of 24. The Practice of the Presence of God was originally compiled from his letters and conversations, immediately after his death. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove is the author of New Monasticism, and forthcoming from Paraclete Press: The Wisdom of Stability.

    What a spirit filled book. I discovered it late in my life, but praise be to God, not to late to impact my daily thoughts and actions. This book of 135 pages touched my heart many times and brought tears of understanding because the writing was so full of simple and honest revelations. A great book for anyone who wants to be closer to God in soul and mind. A conversation with God often is what you need to practice the presence of God. I plan to discover other Paraclete essentials. I give it 5 stars easily.
