Book Description

1 May 2014
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheila Upjohn's best yet 15 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Being a Julian "devotee" for a number of years, I looked forward to this further delving into Julian. Sheila present excellent reasons why Julian is so relevant to the 21st century. An excellent read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what one would expect, but interesting analysis anyway 3 April 2003
By mianfei - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Why Julian Now" is a study of the teachings of fourteenth-century English anchoress Julian Of Norwich that attempts to explain why she is seen as relevant even in this day and age.

The book does not, though, look at her thought in any way from the perspective of modern Western society. Rather, it is written as a journey through Julian's thought and Upjohn uses highly symbolic language to title each chapter, so that the reader has to read intensely to find meaning in the book.

However, the analysic of the teachings Julian makes is, if you are able to make your way into the language, very deep and profound. Sheila Upjohn has a very good understanding of the way in which Julian thought and gives the reader this in full depth. Each chapter follows quite logically so that there is a very good sense of cohesion - welcome for the student who does not know much about what Julian taught. There are some perspective on how her teachings fit into history, but only just enough to avoid the problem of historically isolating her work.

On the whole, most interesting, even if it will not be what you expect. This book is a very deep spiritual analysis that may not appeal to some.
