The way of Julian of Norwich
A Prayer Journey through Lent
by Sheila Upjohn
‘Thoroughly relevant’ The Rt Revd Alan Hopes
‘Julian comes alive through Sheila Upjohn’s love of Norwich and her own faith and sensitivity.’
A fifteenth-century roof boss in Norwich Cathedral depicts Julian of Norwich holding open the door to her cell as if inviting us into her cell to offer us assurance of God’s unconditional love that we so badly need today. Julian’s fresh perspectives on sin and judgement, anger and forgiveness, the Incarnation and the crucifixion were once thought so controversial that her book was kept hidden for centuries. Exploring Julian’s book alongside passages from Scripture, Sheila Upjohn shows us that accepting the invitation to step through the door can challenge and enlighten us.
