Jeanne Guyon : selected writings by Jeanne Marie Bouvier de La Motte Guyon( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jeanne Guyon was a seventeenth-century French mystic and Quietist, and a fascinating figure in the court of Louis XIV. Marginalized and ignored by French historians for two centuries after her death, her spiritual writings have nonetheless remained consistently popular among English-speaking audiences. Guyon had a strong influence among Quakers and Methodists in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and her message of self-abnegation and the complete abandonment of individual desires in conformity to God s will continues to inspire many Christians today. This volume offers new, contemporary translations of her most important spiritual writings, including her Short and Easy Method of Prayer and her Commentary on the Song of Songs, never-before-translated letters of spiritual direction, and selections from her autobiography. The most comprehensive introduction to Guyon s life, theology, and historical context available in English examines Guyon s life and historical context, focusing on the religious and political conflicts responsible for her persecution and eventual imprisonment in the dreaded Bastille and examining her spiritual influences and theological contributions."--Publisher's description

Religiosity, Religious Doubt, and the Need for Cognition: Their Interactive Relationship with Life Satisfaction by Kristopher J Gautheir( )

1 edition published in 2006 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Previous research has found a consistent, negative relationship between holding religious doubts and mental well-being, and a small positive relationship between religiosity and mental well-being. To assess the interrelationship between religious doubt, religiosity, and need for cognition on life satisfaction, a survey was administered to an almost exclusively Christian sample of 192 Americans drawn from undergraduates and alumni of a small mid-western college, undergraduates from a small south-eastern college, and several churches from the metro-Detroit area. Zero-order correlations revealed relationships between religiosity and life satisfaction, as well as religious doubt and life satisfaction. Hierarchical multiple regression analyses revealed that the three-way interaction of religiosity, religious doubt, and the need for cognition was predictive of life satisfaction. Significant two-way interactions also emerged for both gender and religiosity, and gender and religious doubt as predictors of life satisfaction. Based upon these findings, counseling applications are discussed, and the importance of probing for interactions in research on religious influences on well-being is espoused
