The writings of Julian of Norwich are more popular and relevant than the 14th century mystic could ever have dreamed they would become. Speaking with freshness, depth and poignancy, they offer timeless wisdom and understanding for present day concerns. For Isobel de Gruchy, Julian was a great support during many difficult years of ministry in South Africa’s apartheid era, but it was when her son died tragically in an accident that she found unexpected reserves of spiritual insight and strength. Making All Things Well opens up Julian’s central themes - such as the mystery of suffering, the promise that we shall overcome evil, prayer and contemplation, the faithfulness and love of God towards all he has made - and relates them to the many challenges we encounter today. Offering forty short reflections that demonstrate Julian’s abiding influence, it is ideal for personal reading during Lent, or at any time of year, for a retreat, for group reflection and as a worship resource. Each contains a scripture reading, an excerpt from her Showings, a meditation, a prayer-poem and questions for reflection.

Isobel de Gruchy

Isobel de Gruchy is a painter and poet. With her husband John, a priest, theologian and writer, she lives at a retreat and conference centre in South Africa and helps run its guest programme.

"The writings of fourteenth century mystic, Julian of Norwich, can provide a helpful antidote to our present busy and worrying world...A helpful and enriching spiritual work, this would make an excellent volume for Lent." -- Margaret Tinsley * The Reader * 'If you have not come across Julian's writings, Isobel de Gruchy will inspire you to delve further into one of our great mystics.' -- Tania Brosnan * Magnet *
