Description: Julian of Norwich's Revelations of Divine Love is truly an amazing work: an example of Christian mysticism, a unique contribution to Christian theology, the first book in English known to have been written by a woman. But it can also be a daunting work.

Veronica Mary Rolf, who has been studying Julian's text for decades, serves as a guide for readers willing to take up and read Julian's work. She not only sets Julian's life and text in their fourteenth-century context, but she also sheds light on each of Julian's sixteen revelations. She then digs deeper into Julian's theological themes, including her innovative mystical theology of the "motherhood of God," and offers a chapter on developing a retreat based on Julian's work. Throughout, Rolf takes a deeply contemplative approach to Julian, illuminating our understanding of her enduring work and its claim that "all shall be well."
