JULIAN OF NORWICH wrote her book The Revelations of Divine Love in one small room in a back street in Norwich more than 600 years ago. What possible relevance could the writing of this 'unlettered woman' have for us, who live in a world so different that she would scarcely be able to recognise it? The question challenged Sheila Upjohn, and she embarked on a quest to discover why Julian's book has become so widely read today. Her journey became a personal voyage of discovery - which led her to explore, in Julian's company, the nature of God, of creation, prayer, sin, the devil - and much more. The lively traveller's tales she wrote on the journey are at once moving and profound. She came to believe that Julian's clear-eyed vision is urgently needed today, and that it can transform our understanding of God as we travel through the twenty-first century.

From Library Journal:

Upjohn (In Search of Julian of Norwich, Darton Longman and Todd, 1989) explores reasons for the resurgent interest in the medieval mystic's writings today. Outlining Julian's understanding of sin, suffering, and the existence of Satan, the author reflects on how Julian's modern appeal lies not only in her feminine images of God as divine mother but more broadly in her optimistic views on the human predicament, which differs from our own bleak perspective. Accessible to lay readers, this is a valuable addition to public library collections.
