This book will also pique the curiosity of those interested in theology and medieval Christian thought. Julian wrote extensively about the love of God and divine grace. Her writings show a "middle way" between sin and extremism which is as relavant to today's Christians as it was 600 years ago.

given 5 points, but the appendices are not on this level.
Julian's text is original and definitely inspiring. The way she deals with
Church dogma is ingenious, as she never denies it but makes credible state-
ments that transcend Church teaching without denying it.
She is, as far as I can know, a genuine mystic who experienced bona-fide
"private revelations" that enrich a reader's spirituality despite the time
gap of more than six centuries. The 14th-century English is not always easy
to uinderstand in depth, but the effort is very worthwhile.
Her statements on Christ, the Trinity, the soul and redemption are master-
pieces of lay theology.
