Hinds' Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard holds a special place in my heart. It is one of the first books that I read as a baby Christian. A dear college roommate left a copy for me with a note as we left for the summer. I read it and treasured it. This edition of Hinds' Feet takes the book to a whole new level. It is just beautiful!
Hinds' Feet on High Places is an allegorical story of Much Afraid as she faces trials and challenges on her Christian journey. Throughout the story, Much Afraid continues to rely on God and continues to keep her faith through the challenges. This beautiful mixed-media edition contains 80 full color paintings, photographs and hand lettered scriptures. It has space to journal and color verses of your own. It could truly be an interactive story of your personal faith journey along with Much Afraid's. It is a also a beautiful edition to give as a gift, especially to a young believer, as I was gifted this book.
According to Tyndale House Publishers, Hinds' Feet on High Places has sold more than 2,000,000 copies. Even if you have read this classic book before, this edition makes for a great one to re-read. I especially liked that this edition has so many ways to personalize it and make it your own. It also has nice thick beautiful paper quality for the illustrations and personalization. In the back of the book, there is also a short biographical section on Hannah Hurnard. I don't believe I had read her story before and found that part of this edition to be also quite interesting. I could recommend this mixed-media edition of Hinds' Feet on High places to anyone and everyone.
I received this book from Tyndale House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
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!
