‘The Practice of the Presence of God’ is a venerated collection of conversations and letters that capture the wisdom of Nicholas Herman (Brother Lawrence). This fresh contemporary version will reach a new generation with his much-needed message.
The message is simple yet utterly profound. The discipline of being aware of God’s presence and serving in utter reliance on Him is the core of what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
God has a plan and a purpose for your life; without exception, we are all anointed and appointed for a specific vocation. Take the simple message in this book and apply it to your life. You will find God in the midst of the exciting and mundane.
“I first encountered Brother Lawrence as a new Christian some 40 years ago. How special to see this classic brought into the 21st century--and especially at the hand of my friend, Mark Bilton. I know of no more practical way to eliminate the false sacred-secular division that plagues believers in the business world, than to come back daily to the simple reality, so well taught by Brother Lawrence, that God is as present with us at work as in the prayer closet.”

“This amazing little book by Brother Lawrence is one of the great classics of Christian literature. And rightly so, as this young priest who worked in often drab and difficult circumstances, so glowed with the very Presence of God. That Mark Bilton has taken the time to bring this jewel into the 21st Century by making it accessible to a whole new generation is an incredible blessing.”
