Publisher Comments:

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. Jeanne Guyon's 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.

When you first begin to glance at the pages of this book it appears that you are entering a dimension of someplace that you are afraid to trod upon because you just do not feel worthy to even read the words written on the pages of this masterfully written handbook on how to enter the Heavenly places that only the Holy Spirit enters. I had to step over chapters one and two's instructions to repeatedly reread these two introductory chapters before going on because most all of us will never reach the heights that Madam Guyon wants us to assertain before moving on to the deeper places that we are all blessed to have available to us in this book.

Having led you all astray, I must say that if I remained in the first few paragraphs and chapters I would not have " Experienced The Depths Of Jesus Christ" that Jeanne Guyon wants to guides us into. I would also encourage those who dare to read this masterpiece not to try too hard to understand all of the content the first time you approach this little instruction book.

If you are into the spiritual realm at all, ( not religion ), you will be so refreshed at the structure of the examples that this remarkable women shares with you, the reader. She creates almost a tapestry of cleverly inserted words that are so simple at times one could feel confused and lost within the pages of her work. Do not get discouraged because The Holy Spirit is present in the contents of this unfolding, soon to be way of life, at least in your spiritual life.

There is a portion of chapter five that addresses how one can enter into the holy of holies or at best enter into the presence of Christ. In Chapter five it simply instructs you to, by faith, breathe a prayer to Christ and enter into and believe that Jesus is your constant companion. I don't like the phrase " Practice the Presence of God", because it has the potential to become cliche and misunderstood. It is my strong opinion that this small portion in this chapter is the key to the rest of the book. I have read this book only a couple of times because the simplicity that it tries to teach could get misinterpeted because of rehashing what Madam Guyon is communicating to us and as a result we will close the pages in frustration.

The advice that I share with those who I introduce to this incredible work of beautifully articulated directions into Christ's presence, is not to think too much about what is being said, but to instead trust their subconscious to retain all the important tidbits that each individual is suppose to recall at the appropriate moment.

Prayer is the key to walk by faith in Christ, along with applying the word of God to ones' life. This book freed me from the religiosity of prayer and the limitations that man had placed upon me because " I was not doing it (praying) right or not spending the alotted "hour" on my knees. Communicating with My Lord is part of my every waking moment whether alone in a room, at work with my peers, or in a crowded room with hundreds of others who may or may not know Jesus intimatly.

This book gave me an insight to God's unconditional acceptance of exactly who I am and allowed me to lightenen up on myself and though we are all to strive for perfection in our walk with Christ I am able to accept, without condemnation, that I will never be perfect but nevertheless I am welcomed into the deep crevices that The Holy Spirits frequently visits, waiting for my presence.
