Anyone who wants to actively love God all the time can do this. Why not begin now? Dallas Willard –back cover. Inafter fourteen years of successful teaching, writing, and administration in Cagayan and Manilla, he pursued his long-standing ambition of settling among the fierce Moros, a Muslim tribe on Mindanao. There, in the province of Lanao, he underwent a remarkable series of experiences of God and simultaneously developed a technique for reducing the Moro language to writing with symbols closely correlated to their spoken words.
This technique not only made it possible to teach them to read in only a few hours but also permitted them to teach others immediately. Intwo years before his transforming experiences, Laubach found himself profoundly dissatisfied. He then realized in that after fifteen years as a Christian minister he was still not living his days “in minute-by-minute effort to follow the will of God.
His confidants at the time told him he was seeking the impossible. Undeterred, he began to try living all his waking moments in “conscious listening to the inner voice, asking without ceasing, ‘What, Father, do you desire said? What, Father, do you desire done this minute? Letters by a Modern Mystic, first published inis a compilation of excerpts from letters that Laubach wrote to his father. The tremendous results of this experiment in living in moment-by-moment communion with God are found in the narrative of these letters.
The Game with Minutes, on page 85 of this book, is the practical guide Laubach developed to assist others in applying the principles articulated in his letters.
Laubach is probably best known for his work to address adult illiteracy in the world. He conceived a simple method of instruction that permitted even the most disadvantaged people in the world not only to learn to read but also to be able to teach others. On September 2,the United States Postal Service issued a stamp commemorating the th anniversary of Laubach’s birth.
Frank Lubach died in at the age of His commitment to live in constant conscious communion with the Father not only transformed him personally but also permitted him to make a significant impact on illiteracy in the world, a work that continues today through ProLiteracy Worldwide, an organization he helped establish.

The concept this book pushes is a moment to moment relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I was introduced to both the concept and the author in Max Lucado’s wonderful lzubach, “A Heart Like Jesus” Once intrigued by the thought of continuous communion with God, I labach this book immediately and dug into it as a starving man would a meal.
The passages in this book touched me in so many different ways as it opened my eyes to this amazing possibility.
I have worked diligently at incorporating what I’ve learned and even though I have a long way to go before I achieve mastery if such a thing is possibleI am overjoyed at the results to date.
I feel closer to God and am more aware of His presence throughout the day. With the heart of a child I approach my very best Friend and grow closer in spirit with Him.
Letters by a Modern Mystic – Renovare
If you’re looking lakbach a deeper relationship with God, I can’t recommend this book enough to you. You’ll myshic other reviews complain about the letters the author sent to his father but I tell you now that if you read them with omdern open heart, you will see God!
This is a good book. Plus this dude is a monk, living in near solitude. It’ll take work, but with the help of the Holy Spirit, it is possible. I think everyone who wants to be as close to God as is possible this side of Heaven should read this. I’d also recommend the above mentioned book by Brother Lawrence. He mentioned Frank Laubach in the book. That also might be worth checking out. It promises practical advice on how to live this way in our current days.
One person found this helpful. I worked for Frank Laubach’s framk in the last years of his life and was CEO for the next 10 years. His organization was nonsectarian, devoted to extending literacy throughout the world. A “Mystic,” he is called jodern the title of this work, frano he was such an activist that he developed literacy primers in more than 1, languages in more than countries. He raised money from private individuals for this cause and lived in a rented one-bedroom apartment with his wife Effa, with the living room a maze of file cabinets and a desk where he wrote 35 books.
This book was not intended as a book, just honest letters written home from the Philippines in his early career. The defect of the book is three introductions.
I would staple those pages together and go directly to Laubach’s frak. Always a modest, hard-working man, he had his face on the covers of such magazines as Time frabk The Saturday Review of Literature, and was never phased. Posthumously, his face was on a U. This is an inspiring read for people of all faiths or no faith. I give it a top rating despite the superfluous introductions. Here he shares an amazingly simple way to do this. Out of his loneliness, living among wild tribes, this method came to him.
Interestingly, he calls it a game. A game, I would say, can transform any life. It was cool to see his progression in this spiritual life through these journal entries. Frank Laubach made an effort letteds keep God in his mind at all times, but he didn’t keep it at an intellectual level. He was actually working on connecting with God on a spiritual level. He would let God control his movements and fill him with his spirit. He wasn’t merely keeping God in his thoughts.
The Game of Minutes at the end was great and lehters some really great suggestions to continually abide in God. Halfway through the book I decided to go on the same quest as his and to journal the journey.
Perhaps someday I’ll publish it too: This an honest, probing journaling of one person’s own growth in the Spirit of God. It has been an inspiration to me for keeping my mind on God and his need for my being his agent. A life-changing little book with more Wisdom and Love than you can imagine. It is a challenge to live every moment in the presence of God, but who could ask for a better companion? Surrendering to Love in a perfect union of friendship, devotion, and humility is what this book is all about Putting on the Character of ChristI found that Willard had really been touched by Laubach’s writings.
I searched Amazon and ebay, but the original printing was difficult to find.
Frank Laubach’s Letters by a Modern Mystic
I was so excited to find that Willard had worked to bring this journey to the heart of God into print so that we all might enjoy. You’ll want to read this over and over again, and give it as a gift – just as Laubach gave it as a gift to all of us. This little book details the prayer technique and practice of Frank Laubach.
