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.
