"Believe me, count as lost each day you have not used in loving God." — Brother Lawrence
This simply written little book about prayer and Christian life conveys a humble man's thoughts on the importance of experiencing God's love. A seventeenth-century French Carmelite, Brother Lawrence spent much of his time in the kitchen of a Paris monastery. Of this experience, he said: "The time of business does not with me differ from the time of prayer, and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen … I possess God in as great tranquility as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament."
A collection of Lawrence's messages given to those who lived around him, this book contains The Practice of the Presence of God
and The Spiritual Maxims
. Both have much to say to modern man about living a spiritual life in a busy world. More widely read today than ever, these two classics — each an easily accessible primer of practical Christian devotion — comprise a particularly good selection with which to begin spiritual studies.
Reprint of The Practice of the Presence of God the best rule of a holy life: Being Conversations and Letters of Nicholas Herman, of Lorraine, Fleming H. Revell Company, New York, 1895.
