Book Description

1 Mar 2011 Paraclete Essentials
The first book ever written in English by a woman and an essential guide to living a Christian life. Her work in the same Middle English as her contemporary Geoffrey Chaucer is dense, deeply intuitive, and theologically complex. In the last thirty years, there have been several translations of her book, but they've tended to be coolly academic, merely paraphrased, or too literal to capture Julian's true meanings. This translation finally liber­ates Julian and her inspired insights from the linguistic jungle and pre­sents her work in a style and format which breaks through not only to her deepest meanings, but to the character of the gentle woman herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and can personally endorse. 9 July 2014

Five stars because I have bought a number of copies over the years, as I do of books that I have read, and found inspirational and longed to pass on to anyone of a like mind who may not have come across it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended. 3 Mar 2012
By Emily Goldberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Julian's wisdom and theology is beautiful and has strengthened and grown my faith so much. This version in particular, is fantastic. The way it's broken up into daily readings makes it so much more readable than any other version of her work I've found. The editor states in the notes that his goals were to make Julian's spirituality accessible to modern readers, to preserve her person as much as possible, to make the text most valid for prayer, meditation, and devotion, and to make it manageable for daily readings. Absolutely achieved. I use it in my personal devotions and bought several copies of this edition for Christmas gifts for friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend this version 4 Nov 2011
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have read several versions of Julian's Revelations and this one is my favorite. It is easy to understand and flows beautifully. It has a contemporary sensibility but still captures the flavor of the Middle English. For the first-time, casual, or devotional reader I would recommend this one. Read slow and savor!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent treatment of a wonderful work 11 Feb 2013
By S. S. Musial - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a deeper understanding of St. Julian's theology, both because of the quality of the rendition into modern English and because of the translator/arranger's own insights.
5.0 out of 5 stars Depths of Truth and Love 9 Jun 2014
By Margaret A. Morandi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book really touched my heart; it was very difficult to put down. Everything I read was truth, but it's another level to experience someone else living such a profound life and reaching levels in their belief that I never knew existed.
