Product Description

Brother Lawrence was a man of humble beginnings who discovered the greatest secret of living in the Kingdom of God here on earth. It is the art of "practicing the presence of God in one single act that does not end." He often stated that it is God who paints Himself in the depths of our soul. We must merely open our hearts to receive Him and His loving presence, where ever we are, be it in a bustling kitchen or on our knees in prayer. A classic in Christian literature. This edition is abridged and updated, while keeping the essence of the message intact. It contains 4 parts: Conversations, Letters, Spiritual Maxims, and The Life of Brother Lawrence.

Publisher's Description

Brother Lawrence was a man of humble beginnings who discovered the greatest secret of living in the kingdom of God here on earth. It is the art of "practicing the presence of God in one single act that does not end." He often stated that it is God who paints Himself in the depths of our soul. We must merely open our hearts to receive Him and His loving presence. For nearly 300 years this unparalleled classic has given both blessing and instruction to those who can be content with nothing less than knowing God in all His majesty and feeling His loving presence throughout each simple day.

Author Bio

A lay brother in the Parisian Carmelite Order, which practiced extreme asceticism, Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection (1611And#151;1691) taught that one's "entire call and duty" was "to adore God and to love Him, without worrying about the rest." He was born in Lorraine province, France. He was unlearned and came from a humble background. While looking at a barren tree one wintry day, the eighteen-year-old Lawrence realized that this tree would blossom once again. He was profoundly moved by God's providence and overcome with love for God. He was not only converted that day but also forever committed to serving God wholeheartedly. As a result, he entered the Carmelite religious community. He changed his name from Nicolas Herman to Brother Lawrence and became known for his simple, practical faith.Although he lived a life separate from the world, he insisted that one could always be aware of God's presence. He believed that by accepting God's help and guarding our souls by keeping them in tune with God's will, we can have constant fellowship with the Lord. He developed the habit of losing himself in communion with God, thereby finding himself again in God's love. In his eightieth year, he died peacefully, embraced in the arms of the Lord whom he had loved and served. His writings have been appreciated for the last three hundred years by thousands of believers.

    The book captures the essence of our life on this earth in His kingdom: "...I am God Almighty, walk before me and be blameless" Genesis 17:1.

    This is a classic. That's what everyone who knows about this book will tell you. But its more than that, it is a challenging book that lets you know that a deeper walk with the Lord is possible. The book is small, the practicing of it requires a lifetime. But the applying of the practices suggested, reap daily rewards, whether the times you are experiencing are good or bad.

    I'm sorry, I really wanted to like this book. I had hoped that it would help to deepen my relationship with the Lord. It didn't. The material is basically repeated over and over again. It is very simplistic. I had hoped for something more indepth and practical than this. I cannot recommend this book at all.

    I first found out about this book when I read a small quote from it in a book by Watchman Nee. I keep going back and reading it again and keep a copy on my desk. Reading a few paragraphs is certain to lift my spirit in a hectic day. Now I try to keep a few copies on hand to share with people as it is so inspiring and gentle and helps us to remember how near and approachable is our God.

    "The Practice of the Presence of God" has totally changed my life and my relationship with God. This is "THE" book for any serious Christian who wishes a closer walk with God. No words can adequately express the beautiful results in your life of this "Practice of the Presence of God". This is a little book that you will read over and over again - and be blessed each time it is read.
