Overview

In the history of the world, few individuals have achieved the depth of spirituality reached by Jeanne Guyon (1648-1717). Many have been inspired by her over the centuries, including John Wesley, who said of her "How few such instances do we find of exalted love to God, and our neighbor; of genuine humility; of invincible meekness and unbounded resignation." She was born in a corrupt age, in a nation marked for its degeneracy; nursed and reared in a church, as decadent as the world in which it was embedded; persecuted at every step of her career; groping as she did in spiritual desolation and ignorance, nevertheless, she arose to the highest pinnacle of pre-eminence in spirituality and Christian devotion.

This compilation includes five of Guyon's most beloved works: Method of Prayer, Way to God, Spiritual Torrents, her autobiography and her poetry. They have been reproduced unabridged, with only minor updating for ease of reading. Do not confuse minor updating with what other publishers have done with her works. Guyon's tone and style have been carefully preserved so that she might live and communicate with a new generation. Editors have worked for over a year on this compilation to bring to life material that has not been published in over 80 years.
