The story of this Jew of Asia Minor, this first-century Pharisee, might be called the history of an obsession. The title 'St. Paul and the mystery of Christ' gives the clue to his life. It had one inspiration, one motive, one end: to preach Jesus Christ. Paul even came to regard his own life as valid only insofar as the Christ-life was its driving force, and it was this doctrine that he preached to others

"This classic work--the original guide to "practicing the presence of God"--Has inspired millions of people in a variety of editions since it was first published after the author's death in 1691.

"In the way of God, thoughts count very little," he says. Full of realistic honesty, friendliness, and simplicity, 'The Practice of the Presence of God' shows that it's possible to meet God among the pots and pans--in the ordinary, daily events of life"--Cover, p.4
