Madame Jeanne Guyon found the way to God through prayer in the midst of a darkened civilization. Her books describing her methods of prayer were so radical in their day that Guyon was imprisoned for several years in the infamous Bastille. Today, her writings are considered classics of Christian literature
This collection of Guyon’s thoughts and experiences was gleaned from the many letters she wrote during her lifetime, including her correspondence with her friend, advocate, and fellow theologian, Francois Fenelon.
