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.

Timeless, wonderful, and meaningful are words that come to mind for this book. Anyone can relate to Much Afraid and the trials and victories she experiences to become more like the Shepherd. One of those books I love to collect to give away.

This is my absolute favorite Christian novel. The allegory is timeless and the message is spot on. As a person who identifies with the main character Much Afraid this book has been a testament to me of what all of us can be if we go on the journey to the High Places. I read this book again and again and never tire of it.

amazing book. I have actually met Grace and Glory in real life. (at least a woman very like her, with a similar story) It is such a good allegory, great for anyone to read.

Amazing book! Great for pre-teen and teen girls too! This book talks about having complete faith through both the good and the bad.

As someone else said this is an allegory like John Bunyan's- Pilgrim's Progress,"but with more heart".
Such an encouraging,uplifting,and edifying book. Truly food for the soul,as is the Bible.

This book will inspire and uplift the downhearted and be a joy for anyone to read. About how we can rely on the Lord when we are going through trials,no matter how bleak things seem to be.

I highly recommend for every Christian's personal library,get yourself,your family and friends a copy. It will be cherished.

Masterfully done. Thought-provoking. The allegory was solid all the way through, capturing the message of the bible in all its warmth, grace, and truth.
