The Practice of the Presence of God:
A New Edition

"The time of business does not with me differ from the time of prayer; and in the noise and clutter of my kitchen, while several persons are at the same time calling for different things, I possess God in as great tranquility as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament," said Bro. Lawrence, the 17th-century Carmelite.

His best-selling devotional classic about finding God in the ordinary, with a foreword by Tessa Bielecki, is now available in a cloth gift edition from New Seeds Books, publishing works that provide seeds for transformation from the wisdom of Christianity, with a special emphasis on the rich traditions of contemplation and prayer.

New Seeds also features Love Burning in the Soul: The Story of the Christian Mystics, from Saint Paul to Thomas Merton, by James Harpur, an enlightening tour of two millennia of Christianity, focusing on the influential men and women whose lives were transfigured by their direct and intimate experience of God.

Of special interest to the Desert Foundation is Where God Happens: Discovering Christ in One Another, by Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury. The author breaks through our preconceived ideas of the Desert Fathers and Mothers to reveal them in a new light: as true and worthy role models who hold the secrets to dealing with the anxieties, uncertainties, and sense of isolation that are such a feature of our times.
