Missy, here. I was just reintroduced to a woman writer in a circuitous way.
I got an email about a new Twitter follower. I went to check out her profile and saw a link about a new John Ortberg book, Who is This Man.
On the book's website, they have a really cool "Learn" section where you can read about changes through the ages (including how Jesus left His mark on the world). One of the categories is the "status of women." Listed as an influencer is Julian of Norwich (AD 14th Century).
A fact the website mentions about her that I didn't know (or just didn't remember) is that she wrote the first book in English written by a woman (in 1393). (I know! Very cool.) The website says this book, The Sixteen Revelations of Divine Love "...is so profound that it is still studied to this today."
Well, you know what that made me do, don't you?? I headed straight to Amazon and bought it for my Kindle. :)
That's a roundabout way to make a book purchase! I've already learned a good bit from the introduction.
Is Julian of Norwich someone new to you? Have you read her book?
