There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God. Only those can comprehend it who practice and experience it.

It was as a lay monk in a monastery kitchen that Brother Lawrence discovered the delight of a continual awareness of God's presence. Despite his modest position, Brother Lawrence's deep joy in his relationship with God led him to counsel numerous people in society, and after his death his wisdom was distilled into the volume The Practice of the Presence of God. An enduring spiritual classic, it remains an inspiring invitation to all who long for more of God's presence in their lives.

This new edition includes an introduction by the translator that sets Brother Lawrence in the context of his time, and a foreword by Jennifer Rees Larcombe.
