An excellent litttle book,
This review is from: The Practice Of The Presence Of God (Paperback)
This is an excellent little book that I would recommened to anyone. The theme of the book is how someone can know and feel the presence of God with them in an going way every day. Brother Lawrence discovered the joy of knowing God's presence and feeling the love and pleasure of God towards him. This became his daily experience for 40 years. Brother Lwarence became known to the monastic community where he lived and worked as one who knew God. His fame trickled out into other religious communities nearby and the world around them. The book is short and is made up of several very short chapters (many of them were originally written as letters to friends and acquaintances by Brother Lawrence) which makes it very easy to read - you can read it for 5 minutes a day in a couple of weeks. So if you are somone who prays daily, you can make reading this book part of your daily devotions. This book will help you experience God's love and feel his presence.
