Random House, Inc Practice of the Presence of God

Brother Lawrence was a man of humble beginnings who discovered the greatest secret of living in the Kingdom of God here on earth---the art of "practicing the presence of God in one single act that does not end." He often stated that it is God who paints Himself in the depths of our soul. We must merely open our hearts to receive Him and His loving presence, wherever we are, be it in a bustling kitchen or on our knees in prayer.

A classic in Christian literature, this reissue of the 1977 translation includes 4 "Conversations with Brother Lawrence," 16 "Letters from Brother Lawrence ...," "Spiritual Maxims," and a foreword by Henri Nouwen. Also included is an in-depth introduction by John Delaney that examines what is known about Lawrence's life, how the book came to be, and its ongoing relevance throughout the ages.

I am not sure how other additions are of this book, but I found the forward to be very helpful. These writings by Brother Lawrence are a good reminder that we need to be in continual prayer and conversation with our Lord. It is a quick read and worth the price.
