    1 thought on “Madame Guyon: A Short and Easy Method of Prayer”

    1. A good little book on the simplicity of coming to God in prayer. Her metaphors for the different aspects of prayer will leave you thinking for days.

    2. Dallas Willard is viewed by many as a modern-day prophet for interior spiritual formation over exterior behaviour modification. Dallas often said that his ideas were not new and challenged his readers to examine ancient writers of centuries past to discover the foundational ideas on which he based his teaching. Few ancient writings capture the essence of his ideas better than this little book. This book is not simply a treatise on spiritual formation, but also a masterpiece on the simplicity of [...]

    3. Some good thoughts on prayer, but more experiential than biblically based and hard to follow. The author also presents a skewed understanding of sanctification overemphasizing surrender to God and letting Him do all the work to the neglect of our part of "working out our own salvation." There are other books on prayer that cover what she does, but more clearly and accurately (i.e. The Pathway of Prayer by Chadwick).

    4. When I read Madame Guyon's autobiography years ago, I struggled to reconcile her joy with the pain and sorrow she endured. I have rarely heard such a sad life story. I understand it better now. She found God in her struggles. She discovered His love. And became an expert on prayer. Now that I've read this book, I appreciate all that she learned because she has taken me deeper into a life with God. I look forward to meeting her in heaven. I think we'll have some good conversations.

    5. After reading the first seven chapters, I skimmed the rest of the book. Having read several other books by Jeanne Guyon, I found this one was much like the others, meaning I probably would have liked it if it was all new to me.

    6. Talks about self-love and the self. How to become closer to God we need to learn to deny ourselves. Also mentions the matter of meditating on His word and praying His word. Focus on quality of prayer - until the soul has no feeling then move on. Don’t cut the enjoymnet of that Word short.

    7. Written by French mystic Jeanne-Marie Bouvier de la Motte-guyon (1648-1717), this is a translation of her work which was eventually banned by the Church. It describes her methodof connecting with God which was also eventually seen as heretical.

    8. Starts off well enough but veers off course. Three or four stars for writing style, but dropped from two stars to one star for content in the last few minutes of listening to this audiobook.

    9. I can see this author had a great influence on those after her. An inviting and honest introduction into the idea of surrendering to Christ.
