All shall be well and all manner of things shall be well. The first book ever written in English by a woman-and an essential guide to living a Christian life. "Whereas in the old days I used to be crazy about St. John of the Cross, I would not exchange him now for Julian if you gave me the world and the Indies and all the Spanish mystics rolled up in one bundle." -Thomas Merton Interest has grown for Julian of Norwich and her Revelations of Divine Love, a fascinating classic guide to Christian living and the first English-language book written by a woman, but its original Middle English is challengingly dense for today's reader. While most modern translations are coolly academic, loose paraphrases, or so literal they miss Julian's deeper meanings, Father John-Julian, OJN, unlocks Julian and her deeply intuitive and inspired insights for the modern reader.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Revelations of Divine Loveis 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.
According to John-Julian in the introduction toRevelations of Divine Love, 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.
Revelations of Divine Loveis an essential guide to living a Christian life. This translation captures Julian s deepest meanings and liberates her inspired insights. sirreadalot.org"
