Apr 27, Esther Louw rated it really liked it. The biggest difference is that the main character is a female, which gives the book a decidedly different feel. Just as though they sang a joyous little song to themselves, that it is so happy to love, even though one is not loved in return.

Hinds’ Feet on High Places
Is the author a Biblical scholar? It is an attitude of will.
With that said, my favorite moment of the book was in Ch 4, where the main character, Much Afraid, discovers a beautiful wild flower, that would in most cases go seemingly unnoticed. There she gains a new name and is transformed by her union with the loving Shepherd.
How true it is-that trials only come to make one stronger. One of the most meaningful and gorgeous books I’ve ever read. She says that He would never do that. This is my favorite allegory. Ever since I was small, I was quick to recognize analogies and entranced by Biblical allegories. This book helped me to realize the rewards received when one mirrors the life of Christ to bring Him glory so that we might know, and share truth. I took a lot away from this powerful tale and trust some of the key messages will linger in my heart for many weeks.
Soon, she relents, and after the initial intense pain, she senses that something is indeed different in her, though she still looks the same, for now.
I don’t read many allegories but this was such a delight and I can understand why so many people read it multiple times. It is the story of a young woman named Much Afraid, and her journey away from her Fearing family and into the High Places of the Shepherd, guided by her two companions Sorrow and Suffering.
The pictures are enchanting hananh the abridgment is quite well done. hannha
Paperbackpages. Almost exactly one year ago, a friend read an excerpt of this book to a group of women. I have a very special interest in this book.
To cast ourselves down like the Brumbach falls, ny happy giving, asking for nothing in return except the joy higgh so doing. The climax is an unexpected twist that comes as Much Afraid despairs of ever reaching the High Places. As it turned out, I only had 10 minute chunks to read this book in and it allowed me to time to really chew on the story and how I could relate my own life and experiences to it.
The teaching of every chapter is absolutely beautiful! The overall writing style is very odd It is an allegory of a Christian devotional life from salvation through maturity. I have no doubt this was the right time for me to read this book. While many people abhor allegory, I like it.
Finally, there were a couple of very unbiblical ideas expressed, which I was disappointed by. Something I think many modern Americans have forgot as we do live in a blessed age.
And then, every woman needs to read this book! They face no particular difficulties, only a constant drudgery and sameness, day after day. One of my favourite books ever and hannah says a lot with the amount of books I read! The Shepard asks Much-Afraid what would happen if He lied to her. I have to admit it; I like this children’s version even better than the original Hind’s Feet on High Places. Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide.
