    Grace Jantzen's study of Julian of Norwich's written work is wonderful, but not for everyone I suspect. Julian has become famous these days for her language about Jesus as Mother--and Jantzen does explore well what Julian meant by that language, and why it is important to keep it mind in the discussion about deity and gender. But just as interesting is her lengthy discussion of Julian's preoccupation with suffering and its meaning. I had not expected such a lengthy and deep discussion, but it was very much worth the study. Julian kept always in mind that God was good--she did not focus on God as all-powerful or the like. She saw her suffering as one with Christ's suffering, and that in turn focused her attention away from the body toward sin. Her view of the body was surprisingly positive, and she changed her own self-image as well from negative to positive. There is much to be learned from Julian's texts, but no one could hope for a better guide through them than Grace Jantzen. For someone who wants to explore late medieval mysticism, there is a wonderful study and I recommend it very highly.
