Overview

A fresh and contemporary translation of one of the best loved and influential mystical texts of all time, "The Showings of Julian of Norwich" brings the message and spirituality of this 14th century mystic to 21st century readers.

Julian of Norwich, a contemporary of Geoffrey Chaucer, was an English anchoress in East Anglia. At the age of 30, suffering from a severe illness and believing she was on her deathbed, Julian had a series of intense visions of Jesus, which she recorded and then expanded on later in her life.

Her message for today's readers is simply this:
She reveals the feminine face of the Divine and reminds us to see
God there.All our failings are an opportunity to learn and grow; that they should be honored, but not dwelled upon.God's love has nothing to do with love and retribution and everything to do with love and compassion.In spite of all appearances, all is well.
