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. View all 5 comments. When I first started reading this book I thought it would be too simplistic.
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. 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.
For those attempting to scale the high and forbidding heights of insight, after taking the Hind at His word and following Him, sheer brute stamina as well as steady, unremitting endurance are mandatory. All of these traits come together perfectly, for example, in the life of the great Georg Wilhelm Hegel. That takes sheer intellectual fortitude Now, Hegel was nothing if not strong.
And if you read him, he will show you how to achieve full salvation and keep your two feet planted firmly on level ground - rather than fly off into space with the feyness that Ms Hurnard evinces here.
Hegel shows us salvation is primarily the long-lasting fortitude of endurance in our faith. At the end of his Phenomenology he speaks of the utter crucifixion of the Spirit on the Cross of the Real. Hegel was continually tormented - and simultaneously challenged to go further - by the anguish of his intuition of Being eternally colliding with the Nothingness within and around him, and, his students tell us, he developed a terrible stammer - his lectures at the end being delivered in a hoarse and barely audible rasp.
Like Sisyphus carrying his boulder eternally uphill. And he died an awful death as a victim of the dread disease, Cholera. But he somehow maintained his fervent Lutheran faith to his last gasp.
In other words, she fingerpaints. Because it probably never was for her. Hegel did it. Simone Weil and Dorothy Day too. The moral of the story, then, for me, is that the spiritual path takes guts and pain, as well as good intentions. View 2 comments.
