THIS BOOK IS BY AN AWESOME CHRISTIAN WRITER THAT TEACHES YOU AND YOU DON'T KNOW IT. IT DEPARTS WISDOM IN A GENTLE STORY FORM THAT CAUSES YOU TO HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE BIBLE TO RE-READ WHAT THIS IS BASED ON. IT IS GREAT.
Mountains of Spices, a sequel to Hinds'Feet on High Places, is a powerful allegory that personifies unhappy, tormenting attitudes of mind, heart and temperament. Meet Mrs. Dismal Forebodings, Old Lord Fearing, Sir Arrogant, Umbrage, Resentment, Craven Fear and others. Contrast their lives with the lives of Grace and Glory, Mrs. Valiant, Mercy, Joy and Peace. Feel the tension as the tug of something better stirs unrest among the inhabitants of the Valley of Humiliation. Not all respond to the Shepherd's gentle touch, but those who do discover that "love turned outward is true life." In the words of a song sung on the Mountain of Calamus where the reeds of gentleness grow:
He loves thee far too well
To leave thee in thy self-made hell.
A Savior is thy Lord.
Concerning Mountains of Spices, Hannah Hurnard says: "I have tried to show as clearly as possible that the very characteristics and weaknesses of temperament with which we were born can be transformed into their exact opposites and can therefore produce in us the loveliest of all qualities."
The sequel to "Hinds Feet on High Places" and just as good.
A powerful allegory that personifies unhappy, tomrenting attitudes of mind, hear and temperament.
A great Christian classic - still well worth reading.
An allegory about human weaknesses and strengths comparing the spices in Song of Solomon to the fruits of the spirit.
The sequel to Hind's Feet to High Places is a delightful story about how Much Afraid finds new ways to follow the will of The Sheperd. I really liked it..
One of her other books is one of my all time favorite books so going into this book with that in my mind, this turned out to be disappointing.
