The Practice of the Presence of God

ByMartin Gallagher

The classic collection of wisdom from Brother Lawrence, a simple 17th century French monk. Updated for the modern American ear, while remaining true to the content of the original text. This version of The Practice of the Presence of God is not intended to be a translation from the original French, or even simply an updating of the original translated English version. Rather, it is a retelling of the original text, much as one would retell a story propagated orally. The text was created by rendering the original text on a thought-by-thought basis, with emphasis on converting the original lines into a conversational form, such that the text appears to be fully cohesive, and not merely a gathering of random thoughts. The original translation left the reader with the task of building the overall themes and connections between various thoughts. The theological sophistication of this simple monk was fully retained, warts and all.
