The Practice of the Presence of God is a guide for all Christians aspiring to union with God. This spiritual classic renders the simple wisdom of Brother Lawrence accessible to every Christian who yearns for the fullness of life. Henri Nouwen points out in the introduction that Brother Lawrence felt that prayer was not saying prayers but is a way of living in which all we do becomes prayer. Nouwen felt this was good advice when Brother Lawrence lived and an important challenge to our present day life. The introduction of The Practice of the Presence of God which is written by John Delaney contains a biography of Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection to acquaint the reader with the man whose spiritual wisdom is presented here and a history of how the book came to be published. Through a collection of recalled conversations with Brother Lawrence and the few letters remaining that have been saved, the reader is presented with a spirituality that encourages us to "trust God once and for all and abandon ourselves to Him alone. With this abandonment to God is the constant conversation we should carry on with Him on all matters. By continual conversation we are able to invoke God's presence with us at all times". Reissue of 1977 version.
