The Practice of the Presence of God Literature Study Guide

Written to accompany French author Brother Lawrence’s posthumous 1691 Christian text compilation, this literature study guide by Sabrina Justison helps you get the most out of The Practice of the Presence of God. Literature study guides from 7SistersHomeschool.com inspire students rather than tire them with busywork that kills the story.

Instead of attempting to examine every element of a book on the first reading, our study guides choose two or three respected literary devices and use them as a focal point.

This book is a collection of letters and conversations by Brother Lawrence, a Carmelite monk who worked in his monastery’s kitchen 300 years ago. Though only 100 pages long, Brother Lawrence’s book is packed with character development concepts, including performing all tasks with a purposefully loving attitude, which are as essential today as they were three centuries ago.

Brother Lawrence encourages his readers to be constantly aware of God’s presence, not limiting conversation with Him to morning devotions, but maintaining it throughout each task of the day. What great concepts for Christian teens (and adults)!
