Item description for Mountains of Spices (Hinds Feet On High Places #2) by Hannah Hurnard...
An allegory of the nine spices mentioned in Song of Solomon compared with the nine fruits of the Spirit.
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."

More About Hannah Hurnard
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.

Great sequel! Mar 19, 2007
This book is a great sequel to the book by the same author, Hinds Feet On High Places. It's a must follow up!
Fruits of the Spirit part is excellent Nov 29, 2006
Half of this book is a direct sequel to Hinds Feet on High Places - it is told in story format, with the same characters as that book. I like it very much. However my favorite part by far is the corresponding chapters on the fruits of the Spirit, and I often go back and read them. In each one the King takes Grace and Glory to a new mountain of a ring of nine, each representing a different fruit of the Spirit & teaching it by comparison with spices listed in Song of Songs (or someplace). She describes how that plant corresponds to that Spirit, and He teaches her about it. Then she goes down into the Valley for the days work. He teacher her a song for each one. One of my favorites is something like this:
Love must give and give and give Love must die or share Only then can true love live Fruitful everywhere. (from Gentleness I think, also the following:) 'The King and Grace and Glory came, just before sunrise, to the Mountain of Calamus, where the spices of gentleness were cultivated...she stood still in delighted surprise, for stretching before her were fields of slender reeds, swaying in the breeze and tossing lightly in rhythmical motion like waves on a slightly rolling sea...
He pointed out to her the exquisite grace and lovely, unresisting meekness with which they bowed themselves before the wind, sometimes right to the ground, only to sweep upward again without effort when the wind had passed over them...
'They know how to be abased and how to be exalted' ..she realized that the lovely fragrance that exuded from them and which men call gentleness, sympathy and loving understanding was developed by the daily practice of bending submissively to life's difficult circumstances without bitterness, resent or self-pity.'
etc. etc. etc. It's really quite good. I've had this book for fifteen years and still go back and read the fruits of the spirit parts regularly (as God seems to be teaching me about that fruit!) It was originally published in 1977 - not many books stay in print for thirty years.
Mountains of Spices Jul 10, 2006
This is the sequal to "Hinds Feet on High Places", and a must read. This book will uplift and encourage the down hearted and give hope. A classic for any bookcase.
Great Follow -Up Mar 23, 2006
This book is an excellent follow-up to Hinds Feet on High Places. The reader followes Much-Afraid, now Grace-and-Glory on her continued mission: to bring her family into the service of the Shepard. A definate must read for those who have read the above book, if for nothing else, to give direction and encouragement with their new life in Christ.
Fruits of the Spirit Mar 20, 2006
This is an excellent allegorical follow -up in the story of the transformation of 'much afraid' and her spiritual jouney. I found the comparisons of the fruit of the spirit to actual spices (even with some artistic license) informative and interesting to read and apply.
