Therefore I begin to think, my Lord, you purposely allow us to be brought into contact with the bad and evil things that you want changed.” ** Tyndale House, through its Living Expressions Collection, has re-released the classic “Hinds’ Feet on High Places: An Engaging Visual Journey” by Hannah Hurnard, illustrated by Jill DeHaan and Rachel McNaughton. Originally published in 1955, “Hinds’ Feet” is an allegory describing God’s deep love for us, and His desire to perfect us and bring us into his loving kingdom. It tells the story of Much-Afraid, who is full of fears, and is crippled and disfigured. She desires to travel with the Shepherd to the High Places, a land full of love, healing, forgiveness, redemption and perfection. As she travels with companions Sorrow and Suffering through areas like the Desert, Shores of Loneliness, Forests of Danger and Tribulation, and Valley of Loss, Much-Afraid must learn to not only trust in the Shepherd, but trust in herself while she fights off the temptations of her cousins Pride, Resentment, Bitterness, Self-Pity and Craven Fear. “Hinds’ Feet” is a beautiful love story that reminds us to turn to God while we strive for the “High Places” — a place where no fears are able to live because perfect love casts out fear and everything else that torments. However, it reminds us that we sometimes must go through the low places before we can reach the high places. Featuring many passages from the Bible (in the King James Version), its title is also taken from the Scriptures — Habakkuk 3:19 and Psalm 18:33. It also features several characters from the Bible, and refers to incidents that incur in the Bible. Tyndale House’s newest version of “Hinds’ Feet on High Places” is a beautifully illustrated book containing gorgeous watercolor paintings, photography, and hand-lettered Scripture verses, as well as areas where you can journal answers to personal questions and reflections. In the back it also features “blank” hand-lettered Scripture pages that allow you to try your own hand at coloring and illustrating a beautiful piece of art. The end of the book also includes a brief autobiography of the author, as well as “Lessons Learned on the Slopes of the High Places,” describing Hurnard’s inspiration that led to her High Places. Some helpful definitions to remember, provided by Merriam-Webster, include: hind is “the female of the red deer” and allegory means “the expression by means of symbolic fictional figures and actions of truths or generalizations about human existence.” This is a beautiful book that would be great to give as a gift, or to keep for oneself. Five stars out of five. Tyndale House Publishers provided this complimentary copy for my honest, unbiased review.

    I read this for my book club, and even though the book had been recommended a year or two ago by a friend, I just didn't enjoy it nor would I recommend it. I didn't know that it was allegory and I tend to be very leery of spiritual allegory because I think it's really hard to do well. Is this tree significant to the story or is it just a tree? Who knows. But beyond that, there are some very serious theological issues. The title of the book comes from a Bible verse and the story is about the main I read this for my book club, and even though the book had been recommended a year or two ago by a friend, I just didn't enjoy it nor would I recommend it. I didn't know that it was allegory and I tend to be very leery of spiritual allegory because I think it's really hard to do well. Is this tree significant to the story or is it just a tree? Who knows. But beyond that, there are some very serious theological issues. The title of the book comes from a Bible verse and the story is about the main character, Much-Afraid, who lives in anxiety and fear in the Valley of Humiliation with her nasty relatives (Pride, Craven Fear, Bitterness, Resentment, etc.). She has a semi-regular relationship with the Shepherd but only meets him at intervals. At one point, he reveals to her that she can go to the High Places and that she will be transformed to have Hinds' Feet (instead of her deformed feet that make going to the High Places impossible). Much-Afraid undertakes this journey with Shepherd-given companions, Sorrow and Suffering. She struggles through many unexpected and difficult phases of the journey, often tormented by her own weaknesses and the jeering of her relatives that pop up from time to time. She sometimes is joined by the Shepherd, but he is always never further than a call away and Much-Afraid learns to call on him more frequently and with more confidence along the way. Eventually she makes it to the High Places and is given Hinds' Feet and everything is wonderful. Looking below at the Valley where she used to live, she is filled with compassion for her relatives and endeavors to go back down and live among them to try to help them recognize their need for the special relationship with the Shepherd/King that she has experienced. The book ends with "Lessons Learned from the High Places" (or something like that, I don't have the book anymore) and a brief autobiography of the author. I had real trouble with the themes in this book, not the least of which was trying to understand where salvation came into the picture for Much-Afraid. We meet Much-Afraid when she already has a relationship with the Shepherd. She's reluctant to spend time with her nasty relatives, tries to have regular contact with the Shepherd and longs to go to the High Places. Early on in the story, she has a discussion with the Shepherd in which he tells her that she can, indeed, go to the High Places, but he must plant the "seed of love" (a thorn) in her heart. He tells her that it will allow her to be loved, but it will come with pain. She fearfully accepts the seed but returns to her village to wait for when the Shepherd will call her. When the Shepherd does call, she is held captive by her relatives, but eventually breaks free to follow him. Her journey is undertaken with the understanding that the Shepherd will not be walking step by step with her every day, but that he is just a call away if he needs her. Eventually she comes to a place where she is "anointed" which really make no sense to me at all, and then she comes to a place where she "dies." She basically allows herself to be tied down to an alter by a priest and have the roots of self ripped out of her heart. At the end of the scenario the author writes, "It is finished." which, honestly, was offensive to me. Nothing but the death of Christ has the power or the influence to be worthy of that phrase. Much-Afraid wakes up and is all changed. She finishes her journey, gets a new name (Grace and Glory or Glory and Grace) and gets a crown. Can you tell at which point she was actually redeemed by faith in Christ? For the life of me, I could not understand what the author was trying to communicate. Members of my book club had different ideas as well. One person thought Much-Afraid was saved from the beginning (she does, after all, have a relationship with the Shepherd), one person thought she was saved when she accepted the "seed of love." The problem is that there are many elements throughout her journey that I believe are applied at the moment of salvation, not at some later point of a Christian's walk. For example, Much-Afraid receives a new name after she reached the High Places. I believe we are a new creation at the moment of salvation. When Much-Afraid reaches the High Places she is out of reach of her besetting relatives. I believe that we struggle with these things (pride, fear, etc.) throughout every stage of our journey until we are with God. Much-Afraid only sometimes walks with the Shepherd, but I believe Christ is with us always ("And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”). Any representation that indicates that Christ is far off (even if he comes when we call) I think is unhelpful. And I have no idea what the anointing was supposed to represent. There are those who believe that you become a Christian at one point, but at some later date you receive an anointing or extra power to REALLY live for God without which you're not really capable of living the full Christian life. I reject such theology and this books seems to rely heavily on it. One person theorized that the journey of Much-Afraid represents the ups and downs of Christian's life, not a linear journey that one ever completes. Unfortunately the book vividly depicts several one-time events (like meeting the Shepherd, receiving the seed, being anointed and dying to self, having unbroken union with God) that I don't believe are separate events (or repeatable for the most part). Even more confusing is that she received a crown when she reaches the High Places but then she goes back down to where she used to live to witness to people. What on earth? Either the crown doesn't represent when most Christians would think it does (a reward received when in God's presence) or the author seems to think that dead people are supernaturally helping their loved ones after they die. I really had no idea what was going on there. I could not recommend this book due to the extreme confusion that I think it can cause about who we are in Christ (immediately) and what our ongoing life looks like with Him. I also struggled with the idea of the relatives. Much-Afraid lives in the family of Fearing (or something like that). Maybe it was written this way just to be creative, but I have a problem with how easily this could lead people to believe that the really bad sins/influences come from outside us. Indeed, one or two people in the book club thought there was a connection between the "relatives" in the book being so nasty and oppressive and our actual earthly families that cause conflict. The Bible teaches that WE have pride, resentment, fear, bitterness, etc. in ourselves. We are not being assaulted from without, but from within. I believe we do have an enemy outside ourselves (Satan - of whom I could perceive no mention in this book), but he is able to entice us because of our own sinful desires. The author's depiction leads her readers to the idea that we are victims of these sins. Even more confusing is that, at the end, Much-Afraid (well, she's now Grace and Glory) returns to live among these "relatives" to try to help them. So are they sins or are they sinners? I don't know. The theology of who we are as men and sinners was muddled at best, and false teaching at worse. I disagreed with the author's decision to weave passages from the Song of Solomon throughout the book as "songs" from the sojourner to her Shepherd. While several members of my book club thought that it was insightful and encouraging to read SOS in this light, I don't believe that the book was intended to be interpreted allegorically. I hold to the literal understanding of the book (that it is about Solomon and his wife). Indeed, I cannot make sense of the book as a representation of my relationship with Christ and to do so I think is misleading and unhelpful. I was sad to hear one person say that, "I have always heard this taught as about a man and woman, but it can be understood this way too (an allegory about Christ and believers)." How many people will come away from this book with a distorted view of Scripture? I seldom read fiction, so there was part of me (despite my reluctance about allegory) that was looking forward to this story, but the writing itself just felt immature to me. The language was very descriptive but I found it to be limited, repetitive and contrived. It was clearly intended to have an emotional impact but there were very few scenes that delivered. I'll admit that a few depictions were poignant, but, for the most part, it lacked depth and literary interest. There was also one moment where the author addresses the reader which seemed very out of place. She also has Much-Afraid and the Shepherd speak to each other in both modern English and old English which seemed inconsistent. Some verses were quoted in, I'm assuming, King James and some where not. Many verses were quoted but only some had actual quotes around them and only some of them had references (not even all the ones that had actual quotes around them). It probably goes without saying that many of the verses were used out of context allegorically. As I mentioned, at the end of the book there is an autobiography which I only skimmed (but it sounds like it showed how connected the author is to her main character) and several pages of what reads like a diary that the author wrote I believe either during the time that she wrote this book or reflecting on the time she wrote this book (in the span of about three weeks). Unfortunately I just could not get through it. It shed a lot of light on how the book came into being, though. The author is very mystical, writing about how she got messages and visions from God and how she was learning the secret language of nature from which she was gaining the insights for her book. She cautions against being dogmatic and instead relies on personal growth and development for spiritual truth. She clearly valued experience and emotion over concrete doctrine so it is no surprise that, according to biographical information about her that I found online, she departed from orthodoxy (not that this book is indicative of orthodoxy in the first place) and has been said to support pantheism, universalism, and gnosticism in her later book Eagles' Wings to the Higher Places. Apparently she also believed in reincarnation (this article has more information: http://www.affcrit.com/pdfs/1996/03/9...). This would make sense in light of Much-Afraid reaching the High Places and then returning back to the Valley. To sum up, I think this book is deeply confusing at best and heretical at worst. I've already seen how it has altered peoples' views about God and the Bible and, based on some further reading I've done about the author, I tend to think that her writing is indicative not of a confused, naive understanding, but an intentional representation of an unbiblical view of God and life. I pray that God would insulate and protect its readers. I, myself, struggled to understand this book and even more to discuss it with other professing believers who all very much liked the book.

    I read this book years ago and was excited to re-read it when it was chosen for our book club. A powerful allegory of the Christian walk, it is based on Psalm 18:33 ("He makes me as surefooted as a deer enabling me to stand on mountain heights") and Habakkuk 3:19 ("The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights").

Full of Christian themes such as surrendering your will to God, accepting with joy what God brings in your life, seeing suffering and pain as conduits for deep work that helps us experience God's comfort and love, humility, and serving others.

This updated version has the original text but is surrounded by gorgeous artwork as well as journaling space and questions to help process the lessons in the story. If you like The Pilgrim's Progress or other allegorical tales, this one is a must-read!

I was too young to truly understand life’s struggles, but that didn’t save me from some evils of this world. I clung to this book, turning to it’s pages many times throughout my childhood and young adult years. The story of Much-Afraid gave me great comfort when I was very much afraid in my own life. I’ve held on to my version of Hinds Feet on High Plac Hinds’ Feet on High Places has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl. It had one of the greatest impacts on my then delicate spirit. I was too young to truly understand life’s struggles, but that didn’t save me from some evils of this world. I clung to this book, turning to it’s pages many times throughout my childhood and young adult years. The story of Much-Afraid gave me great comfort when I was very much afraid in my own life. I’ve held on to my version of Hinds Feet on High Places for many, many years. So when I saw this Illustrated version on the Tyndale Blog Network, I had to have it, if not just for me, for my own children who I pray will enjoy the story as much as I did. Hinds’ Feet on High Places is a beautifully written story by Hannah Hurnard. It’s about a character known as Much-Afraid and her journey to overcome her fears as she attempts to reach the higher grounds up atop the mountain, known as the High Places. There she hopes to gain a new name and be transformed into a new version of herself. Much-Afraid’s struggles come during her journey alongside her two companions, Sorrow and Suffering. Her journey is hard, her struggles as real as any, and every one of them touches at the heart of us all. Much-Afraid’s journey is meant to relate to many of us as we struggle in our own journeys to reach new heights in our own lives, whether it be physical, mental, or spiritual. We all have journeys to embark on, struggles to overcome, and fear to conquer. This book is the perfect pick me up, no matter what it is you are going through. Hannah Hurnard’s newest, special edition of Hinds’ Feet on High Places is beautifully illustrated by Jill DeHaan and Rachel McNaughton, with watercolor paintings and antique style photographs. For a book that already touches at the heart of us all, this version is not only beautiful, it now comes a space for journaling your thoughts, and how you can apply the lessons learned in this book to your own life. There are even a few scripture coloring pages for the doodler in all of us. As for me, this book will probably not be written it, but it will take place along my childhood version on my bookshelf and will be treasured for many years to come. -I received this book for free through Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for an honest review.

Hinds’ Feet on High Places: An Engaging Visual Journey by Hannah Hurnard is the beloved story set among art that brings the tale of Much Afraid to life in a way that will make this version a keepsake. First, the story. Hinds’ Feet is the allegorical tale of Much Afraid, who lives near her awful family, the Fearings. She loves the Good Shepherd whom she serves, and although crippled and fearful, longs to go to the High Places where she can be free of the trials of her life. Similar to Pilgrims’ Progress, the story lays out the path of Christian life from salvation to maturity as Much Afraid journeys to the High Places. It begins in the Valley of Humiliation, with an invitation to the High Places, and follows her travels with two companions assigned to her by the Shepherd. She encounters many trials along the way, as the Fearing family tries to ensnare her and keep her from following the Shepherd. As Much Afraid makes her way along the Shepherds path, we recognize in her struggles some of our own. Pride to be overcome, learning to trust the One who has called us, dealing with discouragement are just some of the obstacles to her journey, and ours. This is a wonderful book for young readers on up, with timeless truths and lessons for every Christian. This edition is made special by the beautiful artwork and photographs. The cover alone is enchanting, done in a vintage watercolor style with a mountain theme. What is inside is more of the same, hand-lettered scripture, antiqued photographs, and more watercolor artwork that lends itself to the moments of the story. As Much Afraid collects her memorial stones along the way, there are journaling spaces for your reflections. It is one of the most attractive gift books I’ve seen, worthy of a place on your coffee table as well as your bookshelf. Also included is “Lessons Learned on the Slopes of the High Places”, a recounting of a trip to Switzerland that inspired Hind’s Feet, and an abridged autobiography of Hannah Hurnard. For the lover of this classic, or for someone who needs to be introduced to it, this version is one to give. Thank you Tyndale House Publishers for providing threeladiesoflit.com with a copy for review!

    Written in 1955, Hinds' Feet on High Places is an allegorical tale which recounts Much-Afraid's journey to be closer to the Shepherd. Hannah Hurnard writes this story to illustrate the mountains and valleys of a Christian's walk. As Much-Afraid encounters trials and tribulations, she must learn to accept that life will not be perfectly easy and must fully rely on the Shepherd to guide her through. As she endures each obstacle, she is being refined and is growing into who God created her to be.

As she endures each obstacle, she is being refined and is growing into who God created her to be. When she overcomes each of these trials, Much-Afraid becomes closer to the High Places. A few years ago, I read this book for the first time. At the time, I did not fully appreciate it, nor fully enjoy it. Although this probably had to do with the fact that I was reading it for school, I wish that I had taken more time to dig into the meaning of this book. Hurnard's ability to weave such a beautiful tale while also connecting to the Christian's walk is astounding. There are so many lessons that can be learned from this book. One thing that I wanted to share with you is something Hurnard mentions in the preface to the book. She states that "the High Places and the hinds' feet do not refer to heavenly places after death, but are meant to be the glorious experiences of God's children here and now - if they will follow the path He chooses for them." I have always thought that the High Places were referring to heaven. However, knowing this changed the entire book for me. It reminded me that we can have a close relationship with our Shepherd and that we can feel His presence here on earth. We will experience many mountaintops and many valleys during our time here, yet we should use both the ups and the downs to be a light to others and to grow closer to Jesus. I would absolutely recommend this book. The particular copy that I have is beautifully illustrated and extremely engaging. Hannah Hurnard's story is one for all ages. Though it might be challenging to fully comprehend or appreciate the first time, I encourage you to read it more than once. The lessons you learn from it will be worth it! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

She cannot believe God would send her on such a journey to get to those places by going through many difficult courses to get there.

God knows best though and Much-Afraid gets used to traveling with them and are glad that they are there with her. Along the way readers will be able to visualize Much-Afraid's journey through the illustrations, write information in memorial stones, color some small designs off to the sides of the pages, and color some pages at the end of book. I was reminded through this book that God's ways are mysterious and often beyond our human thinking. I like that even though God went away for awhile that he did it in a way that Much-Afraid could know he was there and that he was always with her. I also liked that God gave Much-Afraid a new name that matched the work he did with her and that she would need at the high places he was sending her. I learned that at first people might not be happy with who God pairs them up to travel with on a spiritual journey (and people may feel the same way about traveling with them), but people can get used to each other and bond even though they are very different from each other. I think this version of the book I read is different from some other versions out there which includes different places in the book to color. I think it probably reaches out to many age groups, children and adults alike. I received this book free from the publisher for the purpose of reviewing it.

As I said in a previous post, Hinds Feet On High Places is a story of Little Miss Much-Afraid and her journey with the Chief Shepherd to the High Places where she hopes her disabling disfigurements will be transformed by healing streams. This beautiful story is meant to portray both, the beauty and the harsh realities, that often accompany our journeys through this life. Little Miss Much-Afraid is led to a barren desert, along the shores of loneliness, up the Precipice of Injury, as well as through the Forests of Danger and Tribulation and the Valley of Loss. Throughout the book are scriptures painted in bold and vivid colors marking Miss Much-Afraid’s journey, the way they so often mark out our own. Bravo Tyndale House for bringing out this book NOW, just in time for Christmas! I’ll tell you the truth, as I unwrapped this book from its shipping wrapper, I was delighted at what I saw! I thought, “With so many people going through their own difficult journey right now, I can’t think of a more welcome and fitting gift to give someone who is hurting this holiday season.” Hinds Feet on High Places, An Engaging Visual Journey is available now on Christian Book Distributors or at any of your other fine retailers

    Hinds' Feet on High Places is a beautifully told allegory of the acceptance and recognition of God's love in spite of the trials and hardships we undergo in life. It is a modern-day Pilgrim's Progress based upon the Song of Songs. The story begins with Much Afraid who is stuck in the valley with her family, the Fearfuls, and betrothed to an evil cousin. Her fear overwhelms her ability to direct the course of her life and reach the High Places, until she spends enough time with the Shepherd.

Her fear overwhelms her ability to direct the course of her life and reach the High Places, until she spends enough time with the Shepherd. "The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hind's feet, and he will make me to walk upon thine high places" - Habakkuk 3:19 The book is wonderful and personally helped me to find acceptance for the hardships and pain I have endured in my lifetime. While I still have far to go, I know that this book will remain a comfort to me along my journey. I love that the Shepherd waited all that time for Much Afraid to ask him for help to escape her family and travel to the High Places. He did not push the idea on her but took his time and waited till she was ready and receptive to understand the message. This edition is beautifully printed with glorious illustrations that inspire the imagination and create a calm, quiet environment for you (the reader) to study the allegory. The end of the book includes a diary-style account by the author of her experiences while writing the story and also a biography of the author. Overall this would make a wonderful book to give as a Christmas gift!

    Tyndale was kind enough to send me this new edition of Hinds Feet on High Places. This is probably one of the most visually beautiful books. It goes beyond a coffee table book. Its the kind of book you want to read + revisit because it just makes you feel happy. It is definitely a classic. This would also make a great Christmas gift this year. Each page has a small, medium, or large drawing and design on it. I love the Bible verses paired with the chapters, along with the artwork chosen.

Each page has a small, medium, or large drawing and design on it. I love the Bible verses paired with the chapters, along with the artwork chosen. I seriously would framed each section. Plus there are so many hidden gems within this visual journey. Not to mention the richness of the story, which is timeless. The story opens with Much-Afraid and her wish that her feet be like the Chief Shepherd's feet. Basically to follow the Lord where he leads your feet to higher places. It follows the verse Habakkuk 3:19. A look at how the Lord refines us in hard places to get us higher, to be like Him. So that we can walk where He walks. Besides being a beautiful book this story is perfect and the writing is well done. It draws us closer to Christ's truest love for us. It is well worth you time.

    Hinds’ Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard is a classic story. You join Much-Afraid on her journey to the High Places. It’s an engaging picture of our faith walk — the struggle, the joy, the sorrow, the suffering, the lessons, and the love — as we also journey to the Kingdom of Love and beyond. I love this book and have read it several times, even aloud to my kids. However, this special edition illustrated by Jill DeHaan and Rachel McNaughton is so wonderfully amazing.

It’s a work on art of a work of art in literature! I would recommend Hinds’ Feet on High Places just for the story, but this edition is so much more than I was expecting. I want one, I plan to give copies as gifts and I highly recommend that you grab one or more copies too! **Disclosure: Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.

    I have actually never read Hind's Feet on High Places until now. I know the book has been around for a long time, but just never read it until Tyndale Publishers offered it for review. If you are not familiar with the book, it is along the same lines of Pilgrim's Progress. The story itself is an interesting one, and one that I enjoyed more than Pilgrim's Progress. The writing style is easy to read, and the author had an engaging way of writing and describing her characters and their activities. I have actually never read Hind's Feet on High Places until now.

It has several pages of color paintings and other pictures scattered throughout the writing, which makes it an even more enjoyable read with the paintings and hand lettered Bible verses. I recommend the book, and if you are going to read it, I would recommend getting this edition. It is an eye catching edition that you will want to read over and over.

    I read Hinds' Feet on High Places a few years ago and enjoyed it. These types of books are ones that I have to read slowly and be in the right mood to finish. This new book is beautiful! The pictures are stunning and I think they did an excellent job bringing this story to life through the illustrations. There are a couple places where you can write things down yourself but this is still very much like a regular book. It is very well done and a perfect blend of pictures, the original book, and s I read Hinds' Feet on High Places a few years ago and enjoyed it.

Five stars. "I received this book from Tyndale for free. All opinions are my own."

    Hind’s Feet in High Places is an allegory similar to Pilgrim’s Progress. Hannah Hurnard writes about Much-Afraid’s quest to shed her fear and walk on the high places with Jesus. The story has added depth because of quotations from the Song of Songs and original poetry by Hurnard. This edition is gorgeous. The book is large, about 9 inches square, and the text is illustrated in a variety of styles. I really love square books--besides being beautifully symmetric, the extra space makes the text eas Hind’s Feet in High Places is an allegory similar to Pilgrim’s Progress.

    This allegory spoke so powerfully into my life when I first read it, that I still sometimes think of myself as Much-Afraid on my way to becoming Grace and Glory. This beautifully illustrated version offers a visual feast to give and receive--for anyone journeying through trial, for anyone who loves a good story and is inspired by art. See my full review .
