Summary

Summary

Many people, including trained church professionals, find Julian of Norwich very difficult to read. Translations in modern English don't even seem to help. It's hard to get past her medieval Catholicims to her radically inclusive ideas - to the insights that made Julian a spiritual giant. The Essence of Julian is the most accessible and lively translation of this difficult medieval masterpiece yet available. It is simply much easier to read and understand than any previous treatment of Julian's writings enthusiast will be satisfied for many years to come.
