Considered one of the first books ever written by a woman in the English language, Revelations of Divine Love, by British mystic JULIAN OF NORWICH (1342-1416), continues to be an inspiration to spiritual seekers everywhere. During a period of illness, Julian witnessed sixteen visions of Christ that changed her life. She recorded these visions and spent many years working out their theological implications. Among her revelations were the comprehension of the Trinity, the conquering of the Fiend by the Passion, and the painless glory of Heaven. She believed in universal salvation and is often remembered for being an optimist during a time when many believed that God was punishing mankind. Julian is essential reading for anyone seeking to renew or spark their Christian faith.
