Christ, Our Mother Mercy by Margaret A. Palliser investigates the spirituality of Julian of Norwich, the medieval anchorage, as a theological doctrine. In doing so, Margaret hopes to combat the discouragement many modern-day Christians experience. Namely, with the corruption and pain the world undergoes, people often find themselves losing faith. In exploring Julian's Book of Shewings, a collection of visions that began on May 8, 1373, Margaret states that one can find evidence of God's joy and compassion. Divided into five chapters, this volume provides a comprehensive study on the theological implications of Julian's use of the words mercy, compassion, keep, save, ruth, and pity. These words provide the general framework for Margaret's analysis of Julian's christology, trinitarian theology, soteriology, and anthropology, as well as her understanding of the relation of mercy to nature and grace. Julian's words are comforting but they also present an intellectual struggle. Understanding Julian's theology allows reader to truly grasp the extent of God's mercy and compassion, deeply impacting how they relate to God.
