The Christian allegory, such as the classic PILGRIM'S PROGRESS, is a story that characterizes the Christian walk of faith described in the Bible. Restricted to a single meaning, the allegory features Christian virtues and sins as symbolic characters who have no real personal qualities beyond the abstractions they represent. In Hurnard's allegory, Flo Schmidt narrates the story of characters named Much Afraid, Sorrow, and Suffering as they journey to the High Places, where their weaknesses will be turned into strengths and their fears into faith. The Shepherd who leads them is characterized with a kind, gentle voice filled with love and hope. The personalities of Craven Fear, Pride, and Selfishness, who act as antagonists, are depicted with sharp, cutting tones. The testing of each character during the journey is realistic, and tones of joy ring out as Much Afraid and her companions gather memorial stones to mark their progress. --G.D.W.

I have read it about 5 or 6 different times in my life - in 1979 for the first time, then had my 7th and 8th
grade Sunday School students use this instead of their "assigned" books (each kid "got it" and almost never missed
coming to Sunday School!). I read it again many years later as a mommy to 5 year-old and 10 year-old girls during
Lent. The 5 year old recognized her pride-fulness....that's no easy fete! She is 21 now and recently expressed her fondness for this book.
If you purchase this and it does not resonate with you, may I suggest you place in on the shelf (not too far away or out of sight) and come back to it again another time? I find it helpful when I am fighting with myself and wanting my own way.....
I recommend this story for all who are struggling to lay aside their wants and wishes for the Shepherd's. As you read the story, understanding of past struggles will come to mind and several reasons behind all a child of God must go through. The words "no greater love than this" is truly the only way we will reach the High Places and then return to help others in their ascent.
Devotionals are included at the end of each chapter.

If you are looking for your next desperate gulp of air then there are no star ratings high enough.
If you are going through an extended season of adversity - this is the book for you.
Currently I am in such a season and reading this book seemed as if it had be written specifically for me. The Holy Spirit used the allegorical story of Much-Afraid's journey to the High Places to be as a mirror of my own journey. This story is poignant, instructive and inspirational. It was the right book and the right time for me.
I am about to read it again - slowly.
