This little book, A Short and Easy Method or 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, prayer without
words or distinct ideas. It also encourages readers to accept all things
as from God's hand. At the time of printing, which was a rather stormy
era in France 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
2Cary W = "This little book can transform you and deliver you from all outer, forced forms of prayer. Guyan has such a tender and clear view of the Fathers heart and the Son's brotherhood, that she invites their presence in her tone and words."
