I am grateful I finally got around to reading this book, though it was difficult. I read the shorter and longer texts. I found the longer text more engaging (which I was surprised by).

Julian of Norwich relates the content of sixteen visions she has which reveal Christ, his suffering, creation, the Trinity, thoughts on sin, God's love. This is a rich theologically reflective text. Well worth it.

It is written in the thirteenth century, so don't expect an easy read. Julian takes a little work. ( )

"As a major fan and promoter of Julian of Norwich, whom I call 'my favorite mystic', it is genuinely exciting to find such a faithful but freeing translation of Julian's long lost Showings. Now they are no longer lost--for anyone!" --Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation

Classic mystical spirituality, a much neglected part of the Christian tradition, from a very famous woman. ( )

Julian probably needs no introduction. This edition has very good notes and a reasonable "translation".
