    Actually, this isof an author review as I don t take issue with the content of the book, which is highly reccomended, but rather the inconsistent lifestyle of the author.Here it is Coram Deo to live before the face of God best sums up the message of Brother Lawrence That even the most mundane tasks can be taken up with glorying in the Lord Jesus.This is one of those places howeve...

    I read this many years ago I think , but just now listened to it on Audible Enjoyed it he has a good functional grasp of grace, even though his theology of it was a little muddy.

    One of the best books I ever read I can hardly believe it was written by a virtually unknown kitchen monk from like a billion years ago Seriously useful advice on exactly how to stay connected with God in constant communion Not a bit sentimental Nothing vain or extraneous Nothing obtuse Clea...

    The major barrier to this book is the slightly stilted language I have recommended this to several people and they cannot get past this, essentially missing the book s message If nothing else this makes me understand why the King James Bible remains obtuse for many.Brother Lawrence isn t a famous man and he didn t do anything that should make us place him on a pedestal in the social...

    Many have heard of Brother Lawrence s quote about peeling potatoes to the glory of God This book is a collection of his letters dealing with the topic of practicing God s presence.This is a short but profoundly meditative read Good stuff for mothers in a hurry who want to ponder a connection with God in the midst of busy days also palatable for people going through a hard time to read little bits at a time and absorb them without charging through Brother Lawrence didn t intend to write a boo Many...

    Where I got the book purchased on the Nook yes, it does happen.I m not really sure what to say about this little book I guess I was expecting some great revelation about how to be a better Christian but the basic message here is practice the presence of God every day Hmmm That s a bit like opening a book and finding written inside, This is a book Read it Don t get me wrong, Brother Lawrence sounds like a great guy In fact the book is part memoir, part biography, part letters and so Where I got the book purchased on the Nook yes, it does happen.I m not really sure what to say about this little book I guess I was expecting some great revelation about how to be a better Christian but the basic message here is practice the presence of God every day Hmmm That s a bit like opening a book and finding written inside, This is a book Read it Don t get me wrong, Brother Lawrence sounds like a great guy In fact the book is part memoir, part biography, part letters and so on It s a collection of documents by and about Brother Lawrence who, from the sound of it, was a genuinely humble, dedicat...

    In a world of constant distraction, Brother Lawrence has much to teach us about offering every moment of our waking existence to a deliberate awareness of God s gracious and intimate presence, whether we re writing a sermon or working in the kitchen One must discipline himself to be mindful of God s constant and immediate accessibility The result is a life of peace and joy, even in the face of a painful death.At th...

    While there is certainly a truism presented in this book, and though I appreciated much in it, I believe it is faulty in that it encourages a mystical view of God and the practice of contemplative prayer Brother Lawrence is listed here as an author than endorses contemplative prayer in this article entitled, The Top 50 Christian Contemplative Books A NOT RECOMMENDED Reading Listinfo on contemplative prayer, visi...

    If I would have stopped reading about 3 4 of the way through, I probably would have given this book three stars instead of two I was disappointed to learn that really only about half of this book was written by Brother Lawrence The first section contains a series of conversations recorded by someone who had spoken with Brother Lawrence and the last section was a short biography of his life I found this biography to be so inundated with bad theology and an almost worshipful view of Brother L If I would have stopped reading about 3 4 of the way through, I probably would have given this book three stars instead of two I was disapp...
