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.

This is one of the most powerful books on fellowship with God that you will ever read. The author shares how to have a prayer life throughout your whole day and every waking moment of your life.

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.
