Written by Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection
Published by Image Books-Doubleday, 1977, paperback, 100 pages
A Christian classic on cultivating intimacy with God through life’s everyday tasks.
This enduring classic of devotion consists of the letters and recorded conversations of a simple seventeenth-century lay brother who, through the most ordinary of activities, was able to achieve a profound intimacy with God. At any moment and in any circumstance, he taught, we can “practice the presence of God”—by thinking on Him, loving Him, and offering up our daily tasks as acts of worship. This volume also includes Brother Lawrence’s “Spiritual Maxims,” a summary of his teachings in the form of short aphorisms and sayings.
