A Contemporary Interpretation of the Words of Nicholas Herman. ( Brother Lawrence c. 1614 – 1691.)
‘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 often read the Proverbs sequentially to begin my day with the wisdom of God. Each chapter contains a healthy call to all of us to live in the perspective only the Holy Spirit can provide. Now, Mark Bilton connects each Proverb to a concrete business question or challenge. What a gift to the followers of Jesus seeking to live out their faith in the marketplace!”
“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.”
