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."

|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
(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.|
