Hinds' Feet on High Places is an allegory dramatizing the journey each of us must take before we can live in "high places" The emotions & struggles of our fleshly nature are personified. The journey to overcome these is led by the shepherd king (Jesus) who gently instructs & guides us through what seems terrible, impossible difficulties. As we trust Him & continue to follow Him we begin to change until we finally offer ourselves & everything about ourselves to death with fearless surrender. Only then can we experience true loe with blissful abandonment by giving and giving and giving. ( )

I don't often read allegory and there were moments where I found this contrived; yet the sum of its story line was great. I liked the movement from the valley of humiliation through the desert to the high places. There is transformation along the way, but because the spiritual life is cruciform, there are things Much Afraid has to die to before she experiences fullness.

I also appreciated that this book isn't just a move up. The protagonist (a re-christened Much-Afraid) returns to the valley at the end with a new purpose and a new concern for her relatives. ( )

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. It is an allegory of a Christian devotional life from salvation through maturity. It aims to show how a Christian is transformed from unbeliever to immature believer to mature believer, who walks daily with God as easily on the High Places of Joy in the spirit as in the daily life of mundane and often humiliating tasks that may cause Christians to lose perspective.

A faith-journey of love with the Good Shepherd, somewhat based on the Song of Solomon. ( )
