Publisher's Summary

Brother Lawrence decided that he needed to concentrate on a simple idea: loving God in whatever he did. The Practice of the Presence of God is a record of the conversations and letters exchanged between Brother Lawrence and people in his community, who came to him for advice once they noticed his passionate living for God. As a Man Thinketh, by James Allen, gives examples to illustrate how "mind is the master weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance," so that people may begin to weave in enlightenment and happiness.

Awkward interpretation of a Christian classic

"The Practice of the Presence of God" is a challenging text on Christian living and highly recommended for those who are serious about moving forward in discipleship. Having it available as an audiobook (though WHEN will Audible give us logical chapter breaks?) is quite helpful.

I will warn, however, that the pinched and high-pitched narration of Edward Lewis often threatens to take the joyful message and turn it into something of a scold.

Book 5 - Narration 3 - if I could give it 4 1/2 I would.

The Practice of the Presence of God

I am reviewing the first book of this duo, "The Practice of the Presence of God." If you never read another book in your life, this is the one to read! Brother Lawrence's letters to various friends asking for his advice is spiritually impeccable!
After his life as a foot solder, Brother Lawrence enters a monastery. And there he experiences a spiritual journey with many twists and turns. He then concludes that what he desires most is to become pleasing to God, by practicing what he refers to as the, "practice of the presence of God."
I began to learn from Brother Lawrence, what this experience is like. This spiritual experience is like no other!
While assisting my sister in her used bookstore, I experienced my first pleasing, presence of God. I picked up a book to put it on a bookshelf, the act became sacred. God was there, watching me touch each of the works as if it was for his eyes only. I was transcended into His world of peace and holiness!
I have read this small book at least 25 times. Every time I read it, I am blessed a million times over!
