About the Author

Hannah Hurnard suffered from many fears and phobias. She even developed a stuttering problem that got worse when she had to speak in front of strangers. By the time she was 19, Hannah was deeply depressed. She even considered suicide, but her fears prevented her. God received the sacrifice of Hannah’s speech problem and used it for His glory. He took away her stuttering, so that she was able to share the gospel with others clearly. The Bible became a treasure and a delight even though she continued to wrestle with a spirit of fear. Over time, however, Hannah found deliverance as she continued to follow the Lord in obedience. Later, she was to write the best selling Hinds' Feet on High Places as a result of her experiences with the Lord. She went to Israel as a missionary to the Jews in 1932, and lived there through the war for independence in 1948. In Israel, she served as a housekeeper in a hospital—a kind of work she had detested before her surrender, but now loved.

When I first read this book, it was while I was a prisoner in the TDCJ system. I looked at the book, and right away put it into my locker. I didn't want to read it. However, the inevitable happened...we had our lock-down. With no movement of any kind, and nothing to do, I went ahead and took the book out of my locker and began to read it. I have to tell you that I laughed, cried, and at times was extremely excited...my cellie kept asking me what was going on. I told him he just need to read the book, but he preferred to draw.During that lock-down, I read the book over and over again. Now that I am out, I have repurchased the book as my original I left with another prisoner. Today my wife and I read a few pages every day as a type of devotional. We laugh, cry, and are very eager to turn each page. It's more than just a book, it is about us, and we can relate to it as we walk along on our daily journey. I highly recommend this book to all individuals who are wanting a taste of another reality, yet keeping firmly planted in this one.

I read this on my own, and could hardly put it down. It gave me pictures of myself and how I needed to trust the Lord. I read it with my daughter who was 13 at the time and we discussed the many life lessons that it reflected on the journey of the young lady Much Afraid. We cried together, laughed and were totally blessed in a unique way. I will never forget her journey how she escaped her tormentor's and the rescue of the Lord time and again. The ending was really neat. I recommend it often. I can never seem to keep a copy, because I am always giving it to someone. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

Hannah Hurnard's simple Christian allegory entitled Hinds Feet On High Places is a book that I will always treasure. It makes you see the Christian faith in a new and wholesome way, and experience the joys and pain of Much-Afraid, a girl like so many humans who is learning how to love and obey God, no matter the sacrifices. This book is one of the best I have ever read, and I don't know how many times I have reread it because I love it so much. A must read!!!!

The book won't open on my Nook or Nook for iPhone app. I called B&N Customer Service, they tested it and confirmed that it didn't work, then refunded my credit card. Bad product, but good service. B&N, please post an update to let us know when the problem is fixed.

I first read this book when I was a new Crhristian back in 1974. I loved it then as it was so very helpful on beginning my walk with God. Now I am at least 30 years older and am going to read it for the third time. I have over the years recommended it to many Christians struggling with their walk in the Lord and will continue to recommend it. I love the names of the charcters and how Much Afraid learns to put them in their proper place and how she learns what we must all learn - that the Shepherd must come first in our life and that He is only a call away!

After several attempts to download over a month-long period I spoke with customer service. They were not able to download the book either. They submitted an email to "tech" to review the problem. A week later I called them as I could still not download this beloved book. However, they were very kind and issued a refund to my credit card immediately. This is the only ebook I have not been able to download on my nook.

This book taught me what a loving God could be and is! If you struggle accepting that there is, in fact, someone or something that can love you unconditionlly, read this Higher Power inspired book!

This was a very inspiring read for me. It strengthened my faith and trust in the Lord.

You must be in the mood to read the book; however, I believe it is a story that applies to all of us at one time or another. We can relate to the main character and desire to aspire to her goals as she does. It relates even to our everyday lives because it is an allegory. It's a good book to keep around to refer to when one is down or has a friend going through a rough period.

This book is a must read. It has been a rock in my struggles. I repeat Habukkuk 3:18 19 often like most do Psalms.

I just finished reading Hinds Feet on High Places. We read this in our church in our Bible Study Class. This book could not have come at a better time in my life. It has changed my attitude about everything. Not too mention the fact, that it has also had a big impact on my husbands life as well. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.

A quick and deceptively easy read, this book ranks among the truly great books ever written. In an allegory of simple clarity and delightful word-pictures, the author follows Much-Afraid on her epic journey. Reminiscent of John Bunyon¿s Pilgrim¿s Progress, this book shows the author¿s own unique touch and personality in prose that has a poetic quality to it. Read it for the sheer beauty of language. But read it also for the beauty of the story with its amazing picture of love. Perfect for reading aloud, the lyrical quality of the language delights the ear. This is a book with much to recommend it. It deserves a place among your most treasured volumes.

Hinds' Feet on High Places was one of the best books I have ever read! It's so exciting to watch Much-Afraid's journey with the Shepherd...it mirrors our own lives and our daily struggles with faith. I would highly recommend this book to everyone both young and old!
