All things are possible to one who believes; even more to one who hopes; still more to one who loves.
This Classic work--the original guide to "practicing the presence of God"--has inspired millions of people in a variety of editions since it was first published after the author's death in 1691.
Brother Lawrence was a humble monk who spent much of his monastic life working in the kitchen. His life and writings reveal the secrets of daily, moment by moment fellowship with God. " In the way of God, thoughts count very little," he says. Full of realistic honesty, friendliness, and simplicity, The Practice of the Presence of God shows that it's possible to meet God among the pots and pans--in the ordinary , daily events of life. This edition, rendered from the original French into graceful, comtemporary English, will nourish and delight all who seek to know and love God more intimately.
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.
