Revelations of Divine Love Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
|Kindle, 9 November 2021|| |
When its author, Julian of Norwich (1342-1416), was 30 years old, she received a series of sixteen visions of the Passion of Christ. She spent the next twenty years in meditation on them and in deep study of the theological vistas which they opened up.
"Revelations of Divine Love" is the result. It presents the visions in all their physical detail; it contemplates the joy of the Passion and redemption from sin, the hidden depths of the Incarnation and the Motherhood of Christ. While reaching to the heights of heaven it keeps its feet firmly on the ground. It speaks with simplicity and directness, and it is ideal material for reading as a daily meditation.
This new edition takes Grace Warrack's sensitive adaptation of 1901 and brings it up to date, so that the modern reader is able to understand Julian while still hearing her characteristic voice.
According to John-Julian in the introduction to Revelations of Divine Love, Julian of Norwich (1342-ca.1416) was an English recluse who recounted the poignant, subtle, and radical insights granted to her in sixteen visions of the crucified Christ as she lay on what was believed to be her deathbed. Her miraculous recovery from that illness led to twenty more years of reflection and contemplation and finally to her writing this detailed account of her mystical experience.
Revelations of Divine Love is an essential guide to living a Christian life. This translation captures Julian's deepest meanings and liberates her inspired insights. -- sirreadalot.org --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

If you struggle with the God fearing teachings of the Church then read this. There is another way that is love filled to find God or whatever name you want to call that Loving energy that is All That Is that does not require suffering to find it. She did ask to suffer badly in order to be like Christ and it was in the suffering that she saw her revelations but says that she realises that suffering is not what God intended, that it is just a sign of when we have moved away from our God self (sinning) and towards our physical needs and ego.
