Why read it?

2 authors picked Hinds' Feet on High Places as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This book is an allegory that shows life as full of struggles and doubts as we make our way to our spiritual destination. I fully related to the main character, Much-Afraid, and her insecurities. This book helped me to focus less on my fears and more on trusting a loving God who wants to help me to overcome my insecurities and fears.

From Rick's list on fantasy that has a spiritual theme.

No Christian fantasy booklist stands complete without an allegory. Assuming you’ve read the G.O.A.T. — Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress — why not give Hurnard’s beautiful story a try? I read this as a girl, joining Much-Afraid as she follows her beloved Shepherd through trials and sorrows to ultimately reach the Kingdom of Love. I revisited this book as an elementary classroom teacher and again while homeschooling my children. 

Hind’s Feet on High Places reminds readers of the virtues of the Christian life: battling craven fear, weeding out selfishness, cultivating charity, learning from sorrow, and always, always, calling out for the Shepherd.…
