Publisher's Description

Prayer is the application of the heart to God, and the internal exercise of love."
—from A Short Method of Prayer

Despite a difficult childhood, a loveless marriage, an early widowhood, and life-long persecution, French mystic Jeanne Guyon produced works of extraordinary spiritual power. Admired by Christians for 300 years—including John Wesley, Charles Spurgeon, Hudson Taylor, and A.W. Tozer—her writings offer penetrating insight into cultivating unfettered communion with God.

Hendrickson Christian Classics is planned to include all the timeless books that generations of believers have treasured. Each volume in the series is freshly retypeset, while thoughtful new prefaces explore their spiritual and historical contexts. For contemporary readers, here is an essential library of Christian wisdom through the ages.
 

Author Bio

Madame Jeanne Marie Bouvières de la Mothe Guyon (1648-1717), was a French mystic and the leader of the Quietist movement in France.

Editorial Reviews

"This little volume is perhaps the most significant, historically, of Hendrickson's continuing "Christian Classics" series, which makes important writings available for a very modest cost and includes authors such as William Wilberforce and G. K. Chesterton, among others. French mystic Madame Guyon was the leading light of a movement within 17th-century Catholicism that became known as Quietism, a kind of passive reliance on God. Because of the supposed resemblance of her deep and inward mysticism to certain aspects of Protestantism, Guyon was briefly imprisoned, but her posthumous reputation among Protestants and Catholics alike has remained very favorable. This volume reprints her Method of Prayer as well as Spiritual Torrents. Highly recommended."

    I'm so glad I have come across this work and plan to order it before I leave my computer for the day. I love Guyon's poems and everything else I've read of hers. The end of one of her poems I hold so dear "my law, my love, life's only sweet" in reference to both her God and mine. Looking forward to feasting on this book.sharon slaughter
