The Practice of the Presence of God and the Spiritual Maxims
By (author) Brother Lawrence
A simply written little book about prayer and Christian life, this work beautifully conveys messages from a seventeenth-century Carmelite monk to those who lived and worked around him. Written so that each section of the book could stand on its own, the text has much to say to the modern person trying to live a spiritual life in the midst of a busy career or home. The book's brevity and accessibility make this classic of Christian devotion a particularly good selection with which to begin spiritual studies.
