Some writers never go out of date, never get stale, and never lose their urgency. This fresh punchy tranlation of Brother Lawrence into our American vernacular lets yet another generation in on his simple profundity.
Eugene H. Perterson, translator of The Message

For centuries, the sayings of Brother Lawrence, a seventeenth-century monk, have shown thousands how to live a life sold-out for Christ. Originally published as a brief booklet shortly after Lawrence's death in 1691, his classic work The Practice of the Presence of God has crossed nearly every denominational and cultural line and influenced many.

Yet despite its classic status, Brother Lawrence's description of the Christian life is admittedly difficult for today's reader to follow. In this modern update, Robert Elmer uses his twenty-five years of experience as a writer and editor to help unlock what was originally a straightforward account of how to love God straight from the heart, using accessible language that everyone can understand.

Robert Elmer is a graduate of Simpson College and St. Mary's College in California. Most recently he is the author of The Duet and Jamie Lane Buys Riverdale, as well as over thirty-five popular novels for younger readers. He and his wife, Ronda, are the parents of three young adults and live in Washinton State.
