"My most usual method is this simple attention, an affectionate regard for God to whom I find myself often attached with greater sweetness and delight than that of an infant at the mother's breast. To choose an expression, I would call this state the bosom of God, for the inexpressible sweetness which I taste and experience there." This is how "Brother Lawrence" describes his constant practice of speaking with and reflecting upon God amidst the mundane tasks of life. Nicholas Herman (c. 1605-1691) was born in Lorraine, France, and served as a cook and shoe repairer at a Carmelite monastery. He was only a lay member of the order, and walked with a limp from injuries incurred as a soldier, yet his private thoughts provide a wellspring of devotional insight and refreshment.

Nicholas Herman of Lorraine, better known as Brother Lawrence, was born in 1611 of humble origin. First serving as a soldier, he entered the Carmelite Order in Paris at the age of 55 and became a cook. He died in 1691 at the age of 80, honored by all who knew him.From AudioFile:
This brief book is lovely, compassionate, and moving. A series of notes and letters from Brother Lawrence on the how to keep the presence of God in mind and heart, the work's clarity and directness allow it to succeed where more ornate tracts might fail. Scott Brick's delivery matches the text well. Brick speaks clearly and steadily, allowing Lawrence's heartfelt words to come through him. He sounds genuinely concerned about the people Lawrence prays for. The organizational structure of the book fits the audio format well, with several short sections that can be listened to independently.
