Overview

"I believe in the ... communion of saints."

SURELY if additional proof of its reality were needed, it might be found in the universal oneness of experimental Christianity in all ages and in all lands. The experiences of Thomas Kempis, of Tauler and of Madame Guyon, of John Woolman and Hester Ann Rogers, how marvellously they agree, and how perfectly they harmonize! And Nicholas Herman, of Lorraine, whose letters and converse are here given, testifies to the same truth! In communion with Rome, a lay brother among the Carmelites, for several years a soldier, in an irreligious age, amid a sceptical people, yet in him the practice of the presence of GOD was as much a reality as the "watch" of the early Friends, and the "holy seed" in him and others was the "stock" (Isa. vi. 13) from which grew the household and evangelistic piety of the eighteenth century, of Epworth and of Moorfields.

I was very disappointed when I gave this to a friend for his birthday only to find out it's not the whole book! My copy which I've had for ages has 4 Conversations, 13 letters, and a 38 page section of "Spiritual Maxims." The copy he got has 4 Conversations and 4 Letters... that's it! Not even half of the book!

Bro. Lawrence is someone all Christians should model after because he, himself, modeled after Jesus. He teaches Christians how to live an overcoming life avoiding sin and walking in the presence of God. Read it. I loved it.

The Nook book listed on the page with this book is NOT the same book as the paperback and does not contain all of the content.

Read this book in teens when first became a Christian. Very practical steps to become in God's presence throughout your very day and night, through home, work, and spiritual journey. Short, but filled with practical Christian ethics

This book shows us how to serve God in Simplicity and joy. We don't have to be perfect because only God is. Teaches that we serve God best when we serve in the ordinary tasks of the day. This is a book to read & reread throughout your spiritual journey.

This book breaks down the rigorously structured views and practices regarding how to be and pray as a Christian into an every day real world approach. Brother Lawrence emphasizes how frequent chats with God (versus occasional formal prayers) will assist us with experiencing God's love and presence each and every day.
