I have read this book many times over the years and it has always spoken to my heart. It was time to have another Women's Study and I thought this would make a wonderful resource for our gathering. The allegory is simple, yet profound and we have found many teaching moments through its story. I highly recommend it.
When I was in my mid twenties I read this book and it's sequel Mountains of Spices. It was great in helping me understand who I was and what my roll is in the Christian family. I feel that any young adult would benecit from readings these books.
I read this book years ago, bought more and gave them to friends. I dearly love this little book. It has gems and treasures within its pages that anyone on the journey with the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ, can and will appreciate. Recently, I picked it back up again for the season of life where I find myself, and once again, I will be purchasing more for family and new friends to bless them.
