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.
Reviews - What do customers think about Union With God?
Beautiful and Challenging Sep 5, 2001
This book is so challenging to anyone wanting a deeper relationship with God. She challenges us to fully abandon ourselves to God, intellect and all, and love God for His sake alone, not what we will get from Him. This book is one of many things in my relationship with God that are helping to truly transform my view of God and self.
Freedom Aug 21, 2001
This book to me has offered a lot of freedom to blindly follow God and not have to follow Him with my intellect - through intellectual study, prayer requests, going to church, etc. Those things are excellent and I do them. But where my heart really goes is intuitively and blindly and recklessly abandoning myself to His guidance. Guyon validates those of us who end up feeling like we are going backwards when really God is taking us truly forward in leaps and bounds. God's ways are certainly not ours and Guyon does a fabulous job of helping us understand His heart.
Lost in God Jun 12, 1997
For those of you who desire a oneness with Jesus, this is a must-read. There are "prerequisites". First is that you should be totally in love with Him. Next is desire a total amalgamation with Him. Finally, you must be ready to die to self. Jeanne says, this takes time, but that you should be ready to wait on Him to accomplish this task
