Item description for The Book of Job: With Explanations and Reflections Regarding the Interior Life by Jeanne Guyon & M. W. Russell...
She came from an unsettled childhood and loveless marriage to her controversial years of ministry in France, Switzerland and Savoy. What was it that motivated this noblewoman, keeping her faithful to her unpopular beliefs and causing her to rest joyfully in God's will even in the shadow of dungeon walls? Jeanne Guyon was a woman who understood the cost of the words: For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. The influence of Jeanne Guyon has never wavered with the passing of centuries. Her writings have influenced movements such as the Moravians, the Quakers, the Methodists and the Little Flock. Three hundred years later she is still one of the most influential people in the lives of those who seek a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. In reading this book, you will notice that Jeanne Guyon presents a more inward, Christ-centered perspective than is usually found in our present-day concept of Christian commentaries. Here is her commentary on the book of Job as seen from the principles and dynamics of the deeper Christian life.

More About Jeanne Guyon & M. W. Russell
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.
Jeanne Guyon was born in 1648 and died in 1717.
