All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well. Julian of Norwichs Revelations of Divine Love is truly an astounding work: an inspired example of Christian mysticism, a unique contribution to Christian theology, the first book in English known to have been written by a woman. But it can also be a daunting work. Veronica Mary Rolf, who has been studying Julians text for decades, serves as a trustworthy guide for readers willing to take up and read Julians work. Rolf not only sets Julians life and text in its fourteenth-century context, but she also sheds light on each of Julians sixteen revelations. She then digs deeper into Julians theological themes, including her innovative mystical theology of the motherhood of God, and she offers a chapter on developing a retreat based on Julians work. Throughout, Rolf takes a deeply contemplative approach to Julian, illuminating our understanding of this extraordinary woman, her enduring work, and the revelation that all shall be well.
