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.
