She came from an unsettled childhood and loveless marriage to her controversial years of ministry in France, Switzerland and Savoy. What was it that motivated this noblewoman, keeping her faithful to her unpopular beliefs and causing her to rest joyfully in God's will even in the shadow of dungeon walls? Jeanne Guyon was a woman who understood the cost of the words: For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. The influence of Jeanne Guyon has never wavered with the passing of centuries. Three hundred years later she is still one of the most influential people in the lives of those who seek a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. In reading this book, you will notice that Jeanne Guyon presents a more inward, Christ-centered perspective than is usually found in our present-day concept of Christian commentaries. Here is her commentary on the book of Jeremiah as seen from the principles and dynamics of the deeper Christian life.
