Julian of Norwich was a mystic anchorite living around the twelfth century. Her visions of God as light and mother are powerfully described. She is important because she presses through the male dominated Christian tradition. Pope Benedict has recently named her a Doctor of the Church.
I recommend this book for women who want to explore the sacred feminine. Julian sent me on a quest for modern feminists, such as Sue Monk Kidd.[[ASIN:0061144908 The Dance of the Dissident Daughter: A Woman's Journey from Christian Tradition to the Sacred Feminine (Plus)
Julian of Norwich needs to be read in small bits as a devotional or a subject for meditation.

If you're looking for a truly modern translation of "Revelations of Divine Love", don't wast your money on this version. It may be "modernized" somewhat from the original Middle English, but I would not at all call this rendering a modern translation - so the title is completely misleading. Also, there's no active table of contents, so it's not easy to navigate to where you want turn in the book. I'm glad I didn't spend a lot of money on this kindle book. Even so, I want my 99 cents back.

Julian of Norwich wrote in a way that is not scholarly and is within the reach of most people. Taken in bits, it makes for great meditation material.

This book seems to be directly copied and pasted from the public domain version of Julian's Shewings, which dates from the nineteenth century. If you're looking for a version of Julian's Revelations that's truly modern, All Shall Be Well, written in modern language by Ellyn Sanna, is a far better choice. It's thorough and thoughtful, and gives a fresh look on Dame Julian's writings, which gives them a new immediacy and relevance. The early Middle English versions of the Revelations are lovely (and if you're serious about Julian, you should read them), but Sanna's book is now my go-to volume for Julian.
