The greatest love story ever written, the Song of Songs describes the emotional, unfolding story of the Bridegroom and His bride. Jeanne Guyon shows how the song of a young maiden, fervently in love with her suitor, becomes a powerful allegory of every believer's relationship with Christ depicted in the Song of Songs. Without any embarrassment for King Solomon's intimate portrayal of the lovers, she explores:
The greatness of God's love
Finding God's favor in your life
Learning to rest in His presence
How trials can become blessings
True surrender to God's will in your life
Allow your heart to draw near to the heart of God on this journey to the Father's love
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 to sentence her to prison.
