Lists with This Book. Jun 05, Shannon rated it really liked it. Almost exactly one year ago, a friend read an excerpt of this book to a group of women. In the portion she read, Much-Afraid the main character is promised a new name by The Shepherd.
I asked what name she was given, but my friend merely smiled and told me I should read the book myself. From that point on, the book has been in my mental queue, but the time was never right. Then last month, someone mentioned the book, heard I hadn’t read it and loaned it to me on the spot. There’s something to Almost exactly one year ago, a friend read an excerpt of this book to a group of women.
There’s something to be said for waiting for the right timing in reading a book. I have no doubt this was the right time for me to read this book. Hinds’ Feet on High Places is an allegory. I’ve found that most allegories, especially Christian ones, are a bit heavy-handed. While that could be said for this book as well, the underlying sweetness of the story more than compensated for it. Hurnard didn’t gloss over difficulties in Much-Afraid’s journey, which made the entire tale more believable, enjoyable and readable.
Speaking of readability, the book is a quick read, but I found myself deliberately pausing after chapters in order to ponder the truths laid out.
One such truth was that our greatest enemies on the path to the high places are internal – pride, resentment, bitterness, self-pity and fear. How often do I sabotage my own efforts for one of these reasons?
How often do I let fear stop me from trying? Or pride stop me from taking the first step? If you’re looking for a book with crisp, clean writing, you should look elsewhere. But if you’re looking instead for a book that holds a great many truths, waiting to be pondered, internalized and lived out, Hinds’ Feet on High Places is a good one to read.
No matter where you are on your journey, I suspect you will see yourself in these pages. I know I am Much-Afraid much of the time and this book left me longing to collect stones of remembrance along the way so that I will have the faith and strength to be given a new name – or live up to the one I already have.

Even the names of the characters, like Much Afraid and her companions Sorrow and Suffering, seemed to scream spoon fed spirituality. 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.
It turned out to be a beautiful meditation of God’s love for us and our journey to our own high places. This ve When I first started reading this book I thought it would be too simplistic.
Hinds’ Feet on High Places
This version has an afterward written by the author that explains how she came to write this book based on her own experiences and journey with God. I didn’t find the afterward nearly as compelling as the story, but it was interesting to note her background.
I think this is a book I will read multiple times in my life as I endeavor to develop a closer and closer relationship with God. May 05, LadyCalico rated it it was amazing.
I didn’t read this book until I was on old lady and I saw my own story written in every detail in every page, finding understanding of why God expected me to travel such hard roads during my life as a slow learner. A must-read for every Christian woman, maybe men, too, especially those like me whose lives have been compressed, narrowed, and limited by their fears and worries, for those who value security over growth.

Hinds’ Feet on High Places : Hannah Hurnard :
This book is much better. While Pilgrim’s Progress focuses on the Christian journey as a whole, this book focuses more on the transformation of self from sinner to saint. The part that I really connected with more so than the rest of this awesome book was how Much Afraid held the hands of two black cloaked figures: At first, their hands stung and she wanted to scream and get In my opinion, Hinds Feet on High Places is much better than Pilgrim’s Progress.
At first, their hands stung and she wanted to scream and get away from them, but eventually she found herself grow stronger. This is my favorite allegory. If you haven’t read it, you should!!

It was simply providence that inspired this book. It does not cease to be exact. The author knew just what hinss wanted to portray. She was able to use the tools she acquired to delightfully array a series of unforgettable, eloquent sentences in an artistic, yet factual manner. The dialect is profound, refined and very beautiful, though in certain areas it can be slightly wordy.

The story itself illustrates the beauty of obedience, and the importance of life choices that are produced from the sacrifice of our Lord.
The first and most apparent key to this story is that it is undoubtedly a reflective picture of an intimate walk with Jesus Christ, despite trials, hardships, and the most dreaded of them all, fear. The main character, Much Afraid, embarks on a very noble journey representing the Christian walk with God before going to Heaven where she will find that faith is not only the key to the unseen, but a necessity to overcome the things that are seen, such as fear, and the world that so loves to tower above us.
This book is encouraging and the writing is fantastic!
