There is incident with an extremely high cliff that must be ascended by a steep, slippery and very narrow zig-zagging track, with the help of her two companions, Sorrow and Suffering. Now I think that the author meant that we must be careful about saying things that are far from clear are certain. Mountain of Spices have a special place in my heart. They offer themselves so sweetly and confidently and willingly, even if it seems that there is no one to appreciate them.
This is not a bla-bla-book although it is a story but the genuine profound experience the author lived all her life and also while she was visiting Switzerland for a days-holiday.
It was true, just as he had said, it did cause a piercing pain, but it slipped in quickly and then, suddenly, a sweetness she had never felt or imagined before tingled through her. The author was giving a much needed message that the Christian path is often a hard and difficult one. It also seems that the allegory is frequently “padded” with writing that exists solely for the sake of making a cohesive story which it doesn’t and doesn’t have any allegorical meaning.
How often do I sabotage my own efforts for one of these reasons? Recommend it to anyone who needs encouragement. Although it has the same issues as the original, it is much more compact and doesn’t wander in circles quite so much! Follow Much-Afraid on her spiritual journey through difficult places with her two companions, Sorrow and Suffering. I loved how the author spoke of her journey in the last chapter.
Dec 28, Megan rated it liked it. To paraphrase Beth Moore, we will never find our way to our Promised Land unt 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. One of the most meaningful and gorgeous books I’ve ever read. This book is a tricky one to judge.
It was like comfort food, frankly. The story of Much-Afraid and her journey of falling increasingly in love with God as she climbs the mountain is tremendously uplifting and inspirational. Jun 01, Allison Tebo rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mary have you found it yet and if so how can I access it? I have read this aloud several times to some of my younger siblings, and they have always enjoyed it–particularly the illustrations of Pride and Craven Fear, I’m afraid!
Warm, savory, and simple. This is my favorite allegory. Jan 31, Brent rated it it was ok Shelves: Yet, though the Shepherd leaves in a moment, He returns the same way at the first furtive cry of the forlorn little protagonist.

Hinds’ Feet on High Places
It does not cease to be exact. I have no doubt this was the right time for me to read this book. Other books in the series. This would’ve made it more relatable to the average Christian’s experience, in my humble opinion.
Perhaps it was the execution that turned me off. It’s no literary masterpiece and there is much telling vis showing but the messages so resonate in a reader’s heart that one doesn’t reflect on the simplicity of hnids craft. I would be so grateful. Love is an overmastering passion to help and bless and deliver and comfort and strengthen and give joy to others just as the Lord Jesus always did. Mar 01, Abby A. Books by Hannah Hurnard. Learn this lesson now, down here in the valley, Much-Afraid, and when you get to the steep places of the mountains it will comfort you.
But the Shepherd continues the argument. The book takes its title from Habakkuk 3: The lessons much afraid learned were really good for me when i first plaves saved 35 years ago and i can still learn things from it today.
