"I realize that the prospect of living a 'life of piety' is frightening to most Christians. And prayer is viewed as a very difficult attainment. Consequently, most believers are too discouraged at the very outset even to take the first step in this direction. It is true that if you consider the difficulty of some new undertaking, it can cause you to despair and make you reluctant to begin. On the other hand, the desirability of such an adventure—and the idea that it may easily be accomplished—can cause you to launch out with vigor. This book, therefore, lights the way to the desirability, the pleasure, the advantages and the ease of these two matters: prayer and piety."
Jeanne Guyon, Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ
One of the most influential spiritual books ever penned, even secular historians acknowledge the great impact Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ has had in Christian history. Madame Guyon is generally credited, even by her enemies, as being one of the best-known women in church history.
Will Durant, in his 11-volume Story of Civilization, recounts the impact of Guyon's life and writings on French History. At one time this book was publicly burned in France and yet it has also been received by seeking Christians as one of the most helpful and powerful Christian books ever written. Penned by one of Christianity's most famous saints, Jeanne Guyon, Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ has played a major part in the lives of more famous Christians than perhaps any other Christian book.
