Jeanne Marie Guyon, from her premature birth in 1648 until her departure to Glory in 1717, suffered immeasurably. Yet her afflictions drew her close to God and made her one of His most prosperous and shining witnesses within the shrouds of Catholicism. Her life and literature gave her both Catholic and Protestant admirers in France, Germany, Holland, and England.
In the introduction of this unusual book it is said of this outstanding woman, "In the history of the world few persons have attained that high degree of spirituality reached by Madame Guyon. Born in a corrupt age, in a nation marked for its degeneracy; nursed and reared in a church, as profligate 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.
"She lived and died in the Catholic Church; yet was tormented and afflicted; was maltreated and abused; and was imprisoned for years by the highest authorities of that church. Her sole crime was that of loving God. The ground of her offense was found in her supreme devotion, and unmeasured attachment to Christ."
This volume, written while she was incarcerated in the cell of a lonely prison because of her stand for Christ, traces the very heartbeat of this amazing woman. The influence of her family and church, her personal encounters with the slaves of Rome, and her loyalty and service, within Catholicism in spite of its sordid schemes are recalled by Madame Guyon in this intimate and unusual autobiography. A truly remarkable book about a woman who has influenced the world with her pen.
