Synopsis

This pocket-sized devotional teaches “a species of prayer which may be exercised at all times.” Compiled (anonymously, by Quakers William Backhouse and James Janson) almost 200 years ago from the writings of Fenelon, Mme. Guyon, and Molinos, who lived in France and Italy in the eighteenth century, it is a little manual written to nourish the spiritual life, a lamp continually lighted before the throne of God. It was originally published in America in 1813, went through many editions, and was widely used, especially among the Religious Society of Friends.

As with its sister publications, The Cloud of Unknowing and A Method of PrayerA Guide to True Peace was published in association with Pendle Hill by Harper & Brothers (New York and London).
