THE PRACTICE OF THE PRESENCEOF GOD THE BEST RULEOF A HOLY LIFE.
~ BROTHER LAWRENCE.
Being Conversations and Letters of Nicholas Herman, of Lorraine(Brother Lawrence). _Translated from the French._FLEMING H. REVELL COMPANY,NEW YORK.CHICAGO.TORONTO. _Publishers of Evangelical Literature._
 
PREFACE.
This book consists of notes of several conversations had with, andletters written by Nicholas Herman, of Lorraine, a lowly and unlearnedman, who, after having been a footman and soldier, was admitted a LayBrother among the barefooted Carmelites at Paris in 1666, and wasafterwards known as "Brother Lawrence."His conversion, which took place when he was about eighteen years old,was the result, under God, of the mere sight in midwinter, of a dryand leafless tree, and of the reflections it stirred respecting thechange the coming spring would bring. From that time he grew eminentlyin the knowledge and love of GOD, endeavoring constantly to walk "_asin His presence_." No wilderness wanderings seem to have intervenedbetween the Red Sea and the Jordan of his experience. A whollyconsecrated man, he lived his Christian life through as a pilgrim--asa steward and not as an owner, and died at the age of eighty, leavinga name which has been as "ointment poured forth."The "Conversations" are supposed to have been written by M. Beaufort,Grand Vicar to M. de Chalons, formerly Cardinal de Noailles, by whoserecommendation the letters were first published.The book has, within a short time, gone through repeated English andAmerican editions, and has been a means of blessing to many souls. Itcontains very much of that wisdom which only lips the Lord has touchedcan express, and which only hearts He has made teachable can receive.May this edition also be blessed by GOD, and redound to the praise of the glory of His grace.
