Other than the Bible, this book has had the greatest influence upon my life! I began reading Brother Lawrence's book about twenty years ago and was thrilled to find this version ten years later which combines his experience with that of Frank Laubach's. This simple but profound message of being God's friend has taken years to sink into my heart but has become more precious with each passing year. If you are hungry to know God more intimately, this is the book for you!
