Novel about Spiritual Surrender
by Hannah Hurnard. Book review by Shaun
Hinds' Feet on High Places
This allegorical spiritual story in the style of bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" has been a source of strength and comfort to me recently.
Feeling strapped financially, mentally suffocated and wracked emotionally and physically nervous and frightened, my spiritual SELF has been supported and encouraged by the transformation that Trust and a Surrender to Love THROUGH adversity will lead to.
There is, if we can calm our chattering minds an unbroken Union with the Host who will never leave us...we simply need to believe in Goodness and God will protect that knowledge of blissful CO-Operation.
Letting go of our wilful nature is the hardest part ~
but can lead to glory, if we but visualise it.
In the Spirit of that Love, available to All who seek it.

Hi, Shaun...yes, I certainly recall the depth of strength I received in reading Hind's Feet in High Places...
It reminded me of all the year's in the Canadian Rockies & my favourite animal; the Mountain Goat with the long shaggy snow white hair, and the tiny jet-black horns...
My, what magnificent animals...They are incredibly agile, in that they seem to manage even the most incredibly steep terrain...They almost skip along the narrowest of paths...Then, when faced with an impassable spot, they click up their heels and do a cartwheel turn so that they can safely reverse their direction...
These amazing animals are truly a marvel...so sure footed, there is rarely an accident...
Also, the Mountain Sheep which has the large curled horns & shorter tan coloured hair are really something too...They are not so nearly spectacular as the goats, but they do bravely too, in their Alpine environment.
Thanks for sharing on this great classic Christian book, that continues to bless and heal...Re: Hinds' Feet in High Places Book Recommendation - The Value of Spiritual Surrender
Comment by Katherine T Owen
I love that book.
It helped me too to have faith in difficult times.
I must re read it.
I remember the recurring theme of facing an impossible situation, choosing to have faith, build an altar and hand the situation over to God.
Then receiving new insight - a door opening in what previously seemed a brick wall. Seeing a path where none had been visible. My goodness that was relevant to my life for a long time.
It is good to remember it now.
For anyone interested, here is my article on this website relevant to spiritual surrender
- it is about overcoming our resistance to letting God take charge.
Shaun, I know you draw on a strength beyond your own. You will find gifts in the darkness and remember that the Light is always there.
God blesses you and thanks you for your faith,
