    Story
    "Not your average everyday modern theology"
    Would you listen to Revelations of Divine Love again? Why?

    Julian of Norwich's writing is at once profoundly nuanced in terms of scholastic theology but rooted in the personal experiences and poetry of mysticism. She can stand toe to toe with her medieval peers yet does not submit to playing their game by their rules. Her meditations have the power to inform, entertain, and inspire.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the scene with the hazelnut. Fans of hers know what I mean (the beauty of the passage is well known and for good reason). New readers will be surprised by the subtly and accessibility of her views of the universe.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "A surprising vision of women and Christianity in the middle ages"

    "Terrible!"
    Would you try another book from Julian of Norwich and/or Pam Ward?

    I am so disappointed with the sing-songing voice of the narrator. Impossible for me to listen to. I am pleased with the quality of many other audio books I have purchased from audible.com but I want my money back for this one!
