About-

In this book, visual and poetic emblems of God’s love, created by Otto van Veen and Jeanne Guyon, symbolically represent spiritual meaning and, as such, offer a gift of revealed strength and purpose to the aware reader. In our age, when love seems almost forgotten, this emblem book uniting Guyon’s poetry and D’Othon Vaenius’s illustrations give us a faithful look into what might be. What if Divine love becomes part of the human endeavor and joins to human souls? Otto van Veen and Jeanne de la Mothe Guyon internalized this hope and here reveal to us their vision of the love of God bonding and becoming one with the human soul. Translated into English for the first time here, these emblems of divine love become available to postmodern readers.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“What a splendid gift Dr. James has given us all with this translation of Madame Jeanne de la Motte Guyon's mystical poems with illustrations by Otto van Veen. To us, social media saturated people with irritable impatience for anything not reducible to a tweet, this emblem book looks like a throwback to long-past days. But Dr. James teaches us to pause and linger over the words and pictures, and to let them sink into our hearts with their profound spiritual message.”
