Book Description

31 Dec 1982
In this small book of letters and conversations, compiled after his death, Brother Lawrence simply and beautifully explains how to continually walk with God - not from the head but from the heart. Brother Lawrence expresses a way of life available to anyone who yearns to know God's peace and His presence. And anyone, regardless of age or circumstance, can practice it-anywhere, anytime. A direct approach to living in God's presence that is as practical today as it was three hundred years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Inspirational 21 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brother Lawrence was born 400 years ago. I get the impression that he would have been considered fanatical and radical (for his time), but I found his message of God to be passionate and inspirational. You may wonder how the words of someone who lived so long ago could possibly have any relevance to your life today. The Bible is as relevant today as when it was written 2000 years ago. God's Word never changes. Read this book and let the truths of God touch your heart. Brother Lawrence was certainly led by the Holy Spirit and his writtings reflect the truths contained within the Bible. It is definitely recommended reading to anyone who wants to know the real power of God.

By Destiny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent that this is now on Kindle but we need the one that includes the Principles and The Ways which is the better version as these additional works teach simply how to Practice His Presence which is vital. Can we have it on Kindle please.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Practice of the Presence of God 9 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recommend to all Christians like me to try and read this book " The Practice of the Prsence of God" it keeps us in tune with the Almighty, especially in this times where there are so many distractions in this world we live today too many worldly conveniences, technologies,and too focused to obtaining wealth which are all material things and we forget God.

This was a very easy read and really made evident the closeness, simplicity and dedication that Brother Lawrence had to his faith and to know God more. His faith is inspirational and infectious.
