This was my devotional book for Lent. Unfortunately, it took me much longer to finish this than it should have. This is no Julian of Norwich's fault nor the editor. The book was excellent. I just don't always make time for my devotions. Not good, just reality.

Augsburg Press has published a number of these 40-Day Journey books. If this one with Julian is indicative of the series, they will all be wonderful. The passages by the author (Julian of Norwich in this case) are short enough to think thro

I really enjoyed this devotional. It is rich and deep, yet more readable that Julian's texts on their own. I have never successfully journaled in my life, and this book actually got me to do it, and it was helpful. The quotes from Julian, the accompanying Psalm or other verse, and the questions to ponder and to which to respond - it worked for me. Highly recommend. ...more

This is part of a 40-Day Journey series which includes Joan Chittester and Parker J. Palmer (both favorites of mine). The mystic, anchorite Julian lived 1342-1416 (roughly, nothing is known absolutely); even her name comes from the church she was attached to at the time of her death.
This mysterious sainted woman left us her writing about her visions of Jesus; this we know for certain.

Good to follow alone or with a partner or small group.

Recommended.
