I have recommended it to many women as a tool to deepen their reading of the Devout Life.
Paraclete Press includes it in its series called Giants. More than 400 pages, it is a hefty book and a fascinating read. It is translated by and includes commentary from Fr. John Julian, OJN (Order of Julian of Norwich). Fr. Julian says that from its first publication, The Complete Introduction.... was one of the five most popular books at that time on "serious Christian spiritual development."
Francis was a "very hands-on bishop" and he "highly valued personal contact with his people," writes Fr. Julian. Often sought after for answers to spiritual questions, Francis sometimes sent questioners a written answer to their questions. These were saved in "collections" and used again and again. Some of these Q and A materials are now part of Francis's several books.
Fr. Julian's translation and commentary have gracefully helped us to take it all in and think about using Francis's book for our own spiritual growth.
