Publisher's Summary

This little book, A Short and Easy Method of Prayer, was written for a few individuals who wanted to love God with their whole hearts by Madame Guyon, a celebrated French mystical writer of the Quietist school. This book gives simple instructions in contemplative prayer, or prayer without words or distinct ideas. It also encourages listeners to accept all things as from God's hand. At the time of printing, which was a rather stormy era in France's religious history, the work resulted in Madame Guyon being both attacked and defended by some of the most brilliant writers of her day, even resulting in her imprisonment for a time. The work continues to attract strong defenders and critics, but many find in it a fruitful way to seek God.

Good but with a pitfall

Very good book! Using high old English, making it difficult to stay with the writer.
