When I went to the seminary this was a book one of my professors recommended so I got it and read through it in a couple of hours and was amazed at how in-depth this book is for as small as it is. The first time I read this book was in 1993 and I have read it at least once a year since then. Sometimes I have misplaced the tiny paperback and get upset when I can't find it. I was really pleased when this came out for the kindle and I was able to get it for free. If you are a spiritual person you will want to read this book and believe me it is a quick read and very enlightening. If you put the practices of Brother Lawrence to work in your own spiritual life you will experience a deeper commitment and understanding of God. I recommend this book to people of all ages and suggest that if you have read it once read it again. Every time I read it I find a new jewel of wisdom I can grab onto and grow closer to God.

I wish I had read the one and two star reviews before purchasing this edition, as a gift for someone else. Glad I looked at it before sending. It is not a direct translation, rather it appears to be heavily edited and paraphrased, weakening some of the qualities that drew me to Brother Lawrence's work in the first place. This should be clearly disclosed in the item description. Very disappointing.

Every single paragraph has a priceless nugget just waiting to be picked up. The best $4 purchase of my life! Buy a copy for a friend!! Buy a copy to hand to a stranger!!! Slip a $20 bill into a copy and hand it to the next homeless person you encounter!!!! An excerpt: "...often calls men blind, complaining that we are content with too little. God has infinite treasures to give us, he says. Why should we be satisfied with a brief moment of worship? With such meager devotion, we restrain the flow of God's abundant grace. If God can find a soul filled with a lively faith, He pours His grace into it in a torrent that, having found an open channel, gushes out exuberantly. We often stop this torrent by our lack of respect for it. However, we mustn't restrain it any longer. Let us go into our hearts, dear friend, breaking down the dike, making way for grace, and making up for lost time! You and I are getting along in years. We may have little time left to live. Death is always near, so be prepared, for we only die once."

In this simple little book Brother Lawrence shows us the way of a viable path to God. Considering God as our nearest and dearest friend, we talk to Him in the language of our heart. We walk with God wherever we are, whatever we are doing. Some people prefer to think of God as The Absolute, without form. While this is true, most of the great mystic traditions and religions encourage us to develop a personal relationship with God, as we are by our human nature relational. We live in a world that is revved up; stealing our time and attention with a myriad problems. The common conviction is that we can buy our way out of our limitations. One way out is to inwardly keep our consciousness with The Unlimited, our Best Ally and Friend. I believe if one follows Brother Lawrence's path with great sincerity, it is all one will ever need to do.

This is a classic that I hadn't read before. But I'm glad that I read it now. Brother Lawrence doesn't advocate anything that is complicated, which I believe we too often try to make being in God's presence. Instead, there's a beauty in the simplicity of the practices he advocates. It's not a long read, but it's definitely good.

Actually, I was quite disappointed with this book. I had given my previous copy of Brother Lawrence's writing to someone and then was wishing I had another copy for myself so I ordered this. As it turned out, this one isn't the same as what I had before. Many of the passages I had written down from the previous copy simply weren't in this one. It was as though the content had been de-personalized. I would suggest going with a different version, if you can find one.

In the din and bustle of life, it is easy to forget that God is always with us. Brother Lawrence discovered a way to sustain his awareness of God's presence and shares with us how each person can abide with God in every moment. May God bless you in reading this book and may we have the courage and discipline to practice the presence of God.
Love the content! I had this book before and really liked it. This new one however has a ton of typos and it flows in such a weird way, very distracting to read. I recommend buying from a different publisher.
