Publisher's Summary

Compiled by Father Joseph De Beaufort, this book introduces us to a 17th century Carmelite monk known as Brother Lawrence. Lawrence worked in the kitchens and as a cobbler for the Carmelites. He rejoiced in everyday tasks, prayed constantly, and was known around the monastery for his kindness and willingness to help others. Brother Lawrence recounts in detail how to gain constantand comforting connection to the Almighty. Readers have treasured this little book for centuries because of Brother Lawrence's honest advice and his obvious passion for spiritual matters. Now a new generation of listeners can hear this creative Christian work and may come away withgreat peace, and the joy and understanding of Brother Lawrence and his plan for living in God's presence every minute.

    "Timeless"

    As our Lord is from everlasting to everlasting so too, his inspirations are timeless and true. Bro. Lawrence letters are inspired work. Every subsequent visit to this book is always like the first time. It refreshes the soul. A pleasure.

    "The Practice of the Presence of God: The Best Rule"

    I very much disliked the reader of this book he ruined a beautiful book. He was uneven and noticeable trying to pronounce every word clearly and distinctly so much so that I lost the sense of the story line. In my opinion the reader should be transparent and not take away from flavor of the original author. I deleted the book and hope that another reader will be found.
