Practice of the Presence of God

SKU: 19565



A Spiritual Classic

by: Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection
Translated by John J. Delaney

Here is a guide for all Christians aspiring to union with God, which, according to Brother Lawrence, is the ultimate goal of every soul. The new Image edition of The Practice of the Presence of God is a reissue of the 1977 translation that was the first to appear in decades. It features an in-depth Introduction by John J. Delaney that examines what is known about Lawrence's life, how the book came to be, and its ongoing relevance throughout the ages.

In the words of this humble seventeenth-century lay Carmelite, "we must trust God once and for all and abandon ourselves to Him alone." This difficult task necessarily requires perseverance and continual conversation with God in all activities great and small: "speaking humbly and talking lovingly with Him at all times, at every moment, without rule or system..." In reading these conversations, letters, and spiritual maxims, we learn the key to endless joy.

In short, this little spiritual classic - in its fresh, contemporary English translation - renders the simple wisdom of Brother Lawrence accessible to every Christian who yearns for the fullness of life.
