Customer Reviews for Living Books Mountains of Spices

Living Books Mountains of Spices

A powerful allegory that personifies unhappy, tormenting attitudes of the mind, heart and temperament. Meet Mrs. Dismal Forebodings, Old Lord Fearing, Sir Arrogant, Umbrage, Resentment, Craven Fear and others. Contrast their lives with the lives of Grace and Glory, Mrs. Valiant, Mercy, Joy and Peace. Feel the tension as the tug of something better stirs unrest among the inhabitants of the Valley of Humiliation. Not all respond to the Shepherd's gentle touch, but those who do discover that "love turned outward is true life."

It was a great sequel to Hinds Feet On High Places and made me wish there was another! Grace and Glory became like a friend and as much as a I wanted to find out how the Shepherd touched the lives of those in the Valley of Humiliation, I didn't want the book to end. Hannah Hurnard is a gifted writer with an intimate understanding of God's love for His creation and how He patiently develops character in those who willingly follow Him.

I know this book is written primarily to women by a woman, but I picked up a copy and absolutely loved it. My wife has been struggling since the death of our son, and I pray the book will speak to her as it did to me. Loved it.

I truly enjoyed this sequel to Hinds Feet on High Places because it made me realize how many evil forces are out there to try and destroy us, but that our loving Lord will always be with us to strengthen us through every trial along our journey.

This an excellent sequel to "Hinds Feet In High Places". Although this is an allegory, the struggles are just like those we suffer every day. This is a good book to use during your devotional time especially if you are going through a "dry" season.

This a powerful book which displays so vividly the Love and Grace that our Lord has for the believer. I use this book as a gift to those I disciple, as well Hinds' Feet on High Places. It has proven a valuable tool in sharing the Gospel and in encouraging the believer to walk firmly with the Lord. I highly recommend this book to others. I hope this book will always be available.
