Editorial Reviews


Kerrie Hide's presentation of Julian's theology of salvation is marked by three particular strengths. Her exposition is based on a close reading of the text of the Showings, aided by a keen sensitivity to the nuances of Julian's fourteenth-century English. Secondly, she endeavors to bring into clear synthesis, the many intuitive, imaginative and unsystematic statements by which Julian gave expression to her thought. Finally she puts Julian into dialogue with our own times by making well-judged links to contemporary issues. The Showings are immediately accessible and attractive writings: Kerrie Hide's book helps us to understand the depth and coherence of Julian's theological reflection.
Fr. Michael Casey, O.S.C.O., Tarrawarra Abbey, Australia

Keen historical awareness and a broad theological vision join with deep spirituality to make this a delightful book. Many Christians today, especially if dispirited in the struggles of the times, will thank Kerrie Hide for enabling Dame Julian to speak such a message of hope to them from six hundred years ago. This beautifully written book will also be a fine resource for theologians. It challenges 'soteriology' never to lose its focus in the infinite and invincible love of Julian's vision so well explained in these pages.
Tony Kelly, C.Ss.R., Australian Catholic University

In a fascinating story, wonderfully told, Kerrie Hide sets out the full scope of Julian's understanding of human life as created, sustained, and fulfilled in the context of the free, playful, and compassionate being of God. . . . This book is a compelling read for anyone interested in spiritual life, in prayer, in human hope, or in new ways of thinking about God. And, of course, it is a 'must' for all lovers of Julian!
Graeme Garrett, Charles Sturt University, Australia

Kerrie Hide's understanding of a theology of salvation in Julian inspires ongoing research in mystical literature to discover alternative theologies of the universal call to salvation that manifest themselves in this dependent tradition of revelation and salvation.
