Conversations and letters by Brother Lawrence. of the Resurrection Brother; Joseph de Beaufort With illustrations by Jeff Hill. Spiritual life — Catholic Church — Early works to 1800.
In a busy world of things to do and places to be, a “quiet time” seems like just one more activity to add to our already over-booked agendas.
In this 17th century spiritual classic, featuring the letters and conversations of Brother Lawrence, we’re informed that God doesn’t just exist in the areas of our life that we deem religious. He’s closer than our breath, encapsulates our being, and desires to be part of our everyday activities.
For Lawrence, “set times of prayer were no different than other times, and his work didn’t divert him from God”. His practical simplicity brings a depth of wisdom that all can apply to their lives.
This beautiful paperback of The Practice of the Presence of God retains its original translation, while featuring 21 new contemporary woodcuts. All proceeds from the sale of this book are donated to charity.The conversations were said to have been written by M. Beaufort.
