Item description for Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ (Library Of Spiritual Classics #2) by Jeanne Guyon & Gene Edwards...
Overview 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 Jeanne 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, it has played a major part in the lives of more famous Christians than perhaps any other Christian book. Here is the very first edition written in modern English. Watchman Nee saw that this book was translated into Chinese, and made available to every new convert of The Little Flock. Fénelon, Count Zinzendorf, John Wesley, the early Quakers, Jessie Penn-Lewis and Hudson Taylor all highly recommended it to the believers of their day. This book will introduce you to a whole new - and deeper - relationship with Jesus Christ.

More About Jeanne Guyon & Gene Edwards
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 was used against her and led to her imprisonment.

A must for all Christians Feb 22, 2007
This little book will help you get closer to God as you pray. It should be on every Christian's book shelf. It is a little hard to get in to, but don't give up - persevere - and you will be rewarded with a better prayer life.
A Christian Masterpiece. Dec 5, 2006
Jesus said that eternal life consisted of knowing the Father, and Jesus Christ. Sadly, the experience that most Christians have with their Lord, myself included, is comparatively minute. This book has served as a marvellous help in my life to take steps toward knowing Him better.
To be honest, there were times I questioned its reliability to scripture, because she quotes little of it. Though recently in my studies I have found what she has explained to be confirmed in the Word. (For example: in Him we live and move and have our being. The Book of Acts.)
It is undoubtedly a masterpiece. Yet, I would also say that this book is only a guideline for knowing Christ deeper, and is definitely not the only way. Nor will you likely agree with all you read. Yet if you read it with a hunger to know Jesus more, you will not be disappointed.
awareness of His presence Aug 7, 2006
This book centers on reaching an awareness of God's presence in our daily lives. A way to achieve this is discussed and obstacles that may be encountered are addressed. If you are yearning for a closer relationship with the Lord, this book offers a way to do that.
Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ(Library of Spiritual Classics, Vol. 2) Mar 13, 2006
A must for those pressing on into the Lord. It makes one quit whining and get down to business in their walk with the Lord.
Challenging Sep 11, 2005
This book challenged my level of relationship with God. While I thought that I was committed, this book caused me to evaluate my life and recognize where part of my commitment was nothing more than 'lip-service'. To anyone who wants an intimate relationship with God that is real and vital, this book is a must read.
