French mystic Madame Jeanne-Marie Bouvier de la Motte-Guyon (1648-1717) found the way to God through prayer in the midst of the oppressions of Louis XIV's regime. Her books describing her methods of prayer were so radical in their day that she was imprisoned for several years (1695-1703) in the infamous Bastille prison in Paris. Today, her writings are considered classics of Christian literature.

This collection of Madame 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.

Jeanne Guyon

Jeanne Guyon (1648-1717) wrote from the depth of her own spiritual experiences. Growing up in France during the decadent times of Louis XIV, she was devout at an early age, but was then caught up in the worldliness around her. After an arranged marriage at age fifteen, she became increasingly interested in spiritual things; and, for the rest of her life, she continued to seek God diligently, teach others, and write books on Christian devotion.
These books have become Christian classics. Guyon paid a heavy price for her views and her writings. Throughout her life, she underwent various trials, including persecution and imprisonment for her beliefs. Her commentary on Song of Songs, Song of the Bride was used to sentence her to prison, Experiencing God Through Prayer is still in print.
