The third centenary of the death of Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection inspired the Belgian Discalced Carmelite Conrad De Meester to present this new critical edition of Brother Lawrence's classic on the Practice of the Presence of God, including all of his letters, maxims, and conversations. This book also contains a detailed general introduction to the life and works of Brother Lawrence, as well as the testimonies of his biographer.
"This new edition is helpful to the average reader because it situates Lawrence…within the historical context of his times. But its greatest benefit for such readers is that it provides them with a fresh, readable translation of a classic of Christian literature."
- Wendy M. Wright
"This faithfully translated new edition is the most complete and comprehensive text on Brother Lawrence available."
- Gerald E. May, M.D.
