Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Revelations of Divine Love, the first book ever written in English by a woman---is dense, deeply intuitive, and theologically complex. The last thirty years have seen several translations, some academic, others literal, but none quite like this one which capture's Julian's deepest meanings and liberates her inspired insights.

"This elegant translation of a wonderful spiritual classic makes Julian of Norwich beautifully accessible to the modern reader. And that is almost the pearl without price." -- Archbishop Desmond Tutu

 

About the Author

Julian of Norwich (1342-ca.1416) was an English recluse who recounted the poignant, subtle, and radical insights granted to her in sixteen visions of the crucified Christ as she lay on what was believed to be her deathbed. Her miraculous recovery from that illness led to twenty more years of reflection and contemplation and finally to her writing this detailed account of her mystical experience.

Julian's wisdom and theology is beautiful and has strengthened and grown my faith so much. This version in particular, is fantastic. The way it's broken up into daily readings makes it so much more readable than any other version of her work I've found. The editor states in the notes that his goals were to make Julian's spirituality accessible to modern readers, to preserve her person as much as possible, to make the text most valid for prayer, meditation, and devotion, and to make it manageable for daily readings. Absolutely achieved. I use it in my personal devotions and bought several copies of this edition for Christmas gifts for friends.

I have read several versions of Julian's Revelations and this one is my favorite. It is easy to understand and flows beautifully. It has a contemporary sensibility but still captures the flavor of the Middle English. For the first-time, casual, or devotional reader I would recommend this one. Read slow and savor!

I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a deeper understanding of St. Julian's theology, both because of the quality of the rendition into modern English and because of the translator/arranger's own insights.

The book really touched my heart; it was very difficult to put down. Everything I read was truth, but it's another level to experience someone else living such a profound life and reaching levels in their belief that I never knew existed.
