From the Back Cover
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.As a humble cook, Brother Lawrence learned an important lesson through each daily chore: The time he spent in communion with the Lord should be the same, whether he was bustling around in the kitchen--with several people asking questions at the same time--or on his knees in prayer. He learned to cultivate the deep presence of God so thoroughly in his own heart that he was able to joyfully exclaim, "I am doing now what I will do for all eternity. I am blessing God, praising Him, adoring Him, and loving Him with all my heart."For nearly three hundred 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.

I received a phone call from my sister, and she said that she had been starting her day with a cup of coffee when God told her to phone me and tell me about some man named Lawrence who was a dishwasher but had royalty visit him constantly so he could lead them to Christ. And, that he had written a book called 'The Practice of the Presence of God.' She went on to say that she had never heard of this Lawrence, but that this is what God was telling her to tell me, and that also his book would utterly change the lives of my wife and I. So, I went to Amazon, and lo and behold, there was the book, so we ordered it... and it has changed our lives forever.
Christians can go round and round the mountain trail to the Kingdom and Eternal Life, or they can climb straight up the side of the mountain and get there much quicker, but with much greater difficulty, but with an equal amount of joy. That is the path of Lawrence, of Therese, and now of me and my wife. Join us.
