Item Description...
This simply written little book about prayer and Christian life combines two classics in one - each a primer of practical Christian devotion. The works beautifully convey the thoughts of a 17th-century Carmelite monk and have much to say to those trying to live a spiritual life in a busy, modern world.

Publishers Description
A simply written little book about prayer and Christian life, this work beautifully conveys messages from a seventeenth-century Carmelite monk to those who lived and worked around him. Written so that each section of the book could stand on its own, the text has much to say to the modern person trying to live a spiritual life in the midst of a busy career or home. The book's brevity and accessibility make this classic of Christian devotion a particularly good selection with which to begin spiritual studies.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful Book of Knowing God and Being in His Presence!  May 27, 2008
This is a wonderful book on faith to read and reflect upon. I won this edition of the book in a Pentecost Praise Poetry Contest, sponsored by Brain Strand, in Aylesbury, England. I won the first prize and was mailed a copy of the book.

This book is very inspiring. Although I had to read several sections a second time to get a clear understanding, the language flows very well. Brother Lawrence's commitment was certainly to his Lord and Savoir and not man. There is a lot that a person of faith, and without faith, could learn from reading this book.

I really enjoyed the section entitled "Conversations" and the manner in which they are written. The style is a little different; however, the message is clear. The section entitled "Letters" is equally uplifting and sends a wonderful message of praise.

Part II of the book regarding "Spiritual Maxims" certainly drives home the theme of the book regarding daily worship and praise. This spiritual process, if followed, should erase unwanted and ill thoughts from the mind, and gives a person a clear focus on God. The essence of the book is that each person must have a clean heart and sound mind, because that's the way God desires us to be.

Other books to read are: Trilogy Moments for the Mind, Body and Soul; Everyday Miracles; and The Language of Poetry Forms.
Must have for any Christian.  Nov 21, 2007
This book was referred to in another book that I was reading. I was enjoying that book so I checked this site for Brother Lawrence's book and ordered a copy. It has proven to be one of the BEST investments I have ever made. This tiny book is just amazing in the Truth that it delivers. Brother Lawrence seems to have been an exceptional human being blessed with tremendous Grace from God. It was so because he sought after it. I have recently traveled through losing a job and beginning a new one quite different from what I was used to. After 25 years of being a manager I am now punching a time clock and emptying my own trash. When I begin experiencing pride issues I can pick this book up and immediately be put in my place. Praise God! This book may be small in size but is LARGE in content. Personally, I highly recommend.
A Gem of an Old Book  Oct 30, 2007
This book contains a description of how one Godly man communicates with God and receives communication from his God and is obedient to that communication.
what its all about  Sep 6, 2007
I dont have this exact copy, but just wanted to encourage everyone to get this book.

You can read this thin little thing and put into practice what it says, and let the Lord teach you. Or, you can buy and read a dozen 300 page books.

I have read book after book, for fun, or for seminary, and over and over again, I write in the margins "BL", because so much of what people are saying that has merit is really related to what BL (Brother Lawrence) writes.

This book did more for really bringing me into a relationship with Christ than anything else. I buy like 100 of them at a time to hand out to people who are searching for God's true heart.

Grace, peace and joy!
Excellent book but not this version!  Aug 4, 2007
I bought at least 10 copies of this for all the guys in my Bible study, thinking this was just a newer version of the one which I had read. However, unfortunately, this translation is much tougher to read than the one which has a white cover, with a picture of a tree and a mountain. (Note this is still a step up from the version you can find for free online, which one of my guys said sounded like it was translated by a college student). Here's the one to get: The Practice of the Presence of God
