Author Bio

Nicholas Herman was born in Lorraine province, France in about 1605; he came from a humble background and was an unlearned man. He was converted in 1629, and after being a soldier and a footman for some time, he entered the religious community of the Carmelites in Paris in about 1649. It was there, as a lay brother, that he took the name of Brother Lawrence. He remained in the community until his death in 1691. While in the community he worked most of the time as a helper in the kitchen; it is in this specific surrounding that he became known for his simple, practical faith.

Editorial Reviews

"The Practice of the Presence of God was a pivotal book in my spiritual growth. It showed me there was no division between work that is secular and work that is sacred. When done ’unto God rather than men,’ all work is sacred. And Brother Lawrence, with his sleeves rolled up and his hands elbow deep in the sink, shows us in everyday ways how to turn the kitchens in our lives into cathedrals."
—Ken Gire, author of Moments with the Savior, Windows of the Soul, and The Divine Embrace

    Wanted to get this for our twin granddaughters as they were inducted into the NHS. This little book has so much insight into the relationship we can have w/God if we choose to seek Him faithfully and daily.

    The absence of a cohesive style in its writing causes it to not flow well. Again, due to the way the book came to be it's content is a bit repetitive, but that also serves a purpose. Ultimately only those who are looking for a walk with God that transends the norm and are willing to pay a price that they are not expecting, should read this book.

    For someone who seeks a close relationship with God, Brother Lawrence, a humble servant , shows the way. Written three hundred years ago, the book is as relevant to us today as it was to those who read it then.

    This particular hardback of Practicing the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence is an attractive addition to the home library. More importantly, the content is so spiritually meaty that I am taking a long time reading it, soaking in its truth like a thirsty sponge. I recommend this book to all Christians.
