This review is from: Enfolded in Love: Daily Readings: 8 (Paperback)
This whole series produces an excellent introduction to some great mystics in the Christian Tradition. The slim, small volumes are well-designed and provide visual food for thought as well as providing snippets of the texts. The words are left to speak for themselves, and the translation is standard. I found that I wanted more after reading and meditating on this volume, Enfolded in Love.
Julian is a great character, down to earth and realistic about human beings yet full of insight about the loving nature of God, she never forgets that Christ is mother and father to humanity, and she balances the male aspects of God the Father with the loving and nurturing heart of God.
I would recommend, if you have not explored the Christian mystics , that you give Julian your attention. You will be surprised and delighted at her breadth of vision. Go for it.She is very much a writer who resonates with the world today.
