More About Brother Lawrence, Robert J. Edmonson & Tony Jones
Nicholas Herman was born in Lorraine province, France in about 1605; he came from a humble background and was an unlearned man. He was converted in 1629, and after being a soldier and a footman for some time, he entered the religious community of the Carmelites in Paris in about 1649. It was there, as a lay brother, that he took the name of Brother Lawrence. He remained in the community until his death in 1691. While in the community he worked most of the time as a helper in the kitchen; it is in this specific surrounding that he became known for his simple, practical faith.

Brother Lawrence Jul 9, 2008
This is a tremendous thought provoking work by (and about) a monk in the 1600s who achieved a state of being in which he continually felt totally in the presence of God. I would recommend it for any true Christian who wishes to better grasp and understand the omnipresence of God.
