This book has been such a blessing! Although it has been around for awhile, it's story is everlasting; it describes out walk with the King using allegorical language that is so beautiful. Looking forward to reading the companion sequel Mountains of Spices.
Despite her beginning, later Hannah showed the ever-lurking danger of trusting inner voices. She veered from sound doctrine, embraced universalism (denying God's wrath), embraced pantheism (God is everything) reincarnation and other new age ideas. Her last book was/is sold in New Age Book Stores.
I read this book for the first time over 8 years ago when i was still new believer. I found it by accident one day and decided to get it. I enjoyed it very much the first time around but this time I am getting so much more out of it! I think this is a must read for everyone!
Wonderful read. Exceptional allegory of human beings and all of our attitudes, personalities, strengths, weaknesses, fears etc. When you finish the book you will want to start it all over again because you feel like you have taken the trip with Jesus and you don't want the trip to be over...you don't want Him to leave you just because your "trip" is done. Opens our eyes to our own personality traits as we easily recognize ourselves in the story. I read this book in the mid 70's, loaned it to a friend and have never seen it again. Bought this copy to re read; it was as good this time as it was 40 years ago.
