He asked her to write about the story of her life. Had that request not been fulfilled, we would know little of this woman other than her books...which reveal nothing of her personal life.Jeanne Guyon died in 1717. Her autobiography appeared in 1720, in German! In the late 1800s the famous poet, T.C. Upham, using his own research and her autobiography, produced this biography of her life. This work gives a far, far greater context of her life than could her very personal and intimate autobiography.The story does not end here. A well-known French author published a biography of Jeanne Guyon in the late 1970s, a work never translated into English. Why does Guyons life and her writings remain so unusually popular? It is the depth of content of her words which transcends denominations, doctrines, and centuries!Guyon, her testimony, and her writings will be with us forever. Join the unnumbered thousands who have read her story and have been irrevocably changed.
