What a powerful book! I read it at a hard time in my life and it has been such an encouragement to me! The portrayal of the Shepherd as Christ was done so well! The book was written well and portrayed the struggles of the Christian life so accurately showing the assurance of our Saviour through it all!!!
This story of Much Afraid is one that resonates with most of us in that it brings heart issues up to the surface in such a way that you realize Jesus desires to change them, and indeed, can change them. The character names themselves, Craven Fear, Dismal Forbodings, Mercy and Much Afraid make the story ours. I have recommended this book over and over again, to new believers as well as aged ones and have read it many times myself over the years and made new discoveries each time, and been encouraged each time. It's all about the journey.
I read this book to my children when they were young teens. One was interested in reading it again as it brings back memories of those special evenings. I am happy there is a place on line to purchase books at discounted prices when available. Thank you for your service. God bless.
