This work of spiritual rediscovery casts light on six women mystics who teach us that "the experience with God is inexhaustible". Extensively researched, Enduring Grace draws from actual letters, teachings, and sacred poetry of these real historical figures to portray how God can enter the life of anyone and help create divinity in flesh and blood form.
Author Carol Flinders combs rare archival sources and recently discovered documents to take us to the very heart of feminine mystical experience. She documents the spiritual journeys of Julian of Norwich, Saint Clare of Assisi, Mechthild of Magdeburg, Teresa of Avila, and others. As Flinders brings these women to life, we feel their strength and wisdom flowing toward us across the ages, to help us welcome enduring grace into our own lives.

Thank you Carol Lee flinders! Both inspirational and moving, helps me to reconsider my own femininity and how I approach it and fully embody it within myself. One note to listeners - the audible version differs some from the book.
I have had this book for many years, but I love listening to Ms. Flinders lovingly describe each of these women. I recommend it as a must read/listen for every person I know!
And inspiring...One reviewer mentioned author drew her own conclusions. I am only a bit tempted to agree in some of her summaries. Yet, I still thought the book was absolutely wonderful and inspiring!
