Hinds’ Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard is a classic story. You join Much-Afraid on her journey to the High Places. It’s an engaging picture of our faith walk — the struggle, the joy, the sorrow, the suffering, the lessons, and the love — as we also journey to the Kingdom of Love and beyond.
I love this book and have read it several times, even aloud to my kids. However, this special edition illustrated by Jill DeHaan and Rachel McNaughton is so wonderfully amazing. The watercolor paintings and photos add so much vibrance and beauty. There is also space for journalling and verses drawn and designed to color, which encourage
you to really personalize the journey. It’s a work on art of a work of art in literature!
I would recommend Hinds’ Feet on High Places just for the story, but this edition is so much more than I was expecting. I want one, I plan to give copies as gifts and I highly recommend that you grab one or more copies too!
**Disclosure: Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
Compassion without Compromise is a surprisingly easy read on a very hot topic that is often confronting us as Christians. It’s “easy” as in straightforward, practical, and written for the everyday believer. The authors’, Adam T. Barr and Ron Citlau, heart for both God’s truth and those who struggle in sin is apparent from the front of the book… “How the gospel frees us to love our gay friends without losing the truth” to the back… “” and all the way throughout.
I love the last part of the back summary… “Truth does not preclude kindness—and a good dose of humility is necessary to love our neighbors. With sensitivity and winsomeness, this book will offer an honest but inviting message to readers: We are all in need of the healing that can only come from the truth of the gospel.”
Barr and Citlau are both pastors who have seen how the issue of homosexuality is tearing apart families, friendships and churches. Ron Citlau also has the personal experience of living with same-sex attraction and yet now walking in God’s healing. They talk Biblically and practically with grace and love. Don’t miss the Further Learning and Note section at the back of the book. I found them very helpful and resourceful. There is also more resources including a study guide available at CompassionWithoutCompromise.com.
I received this book for free from Bethany House in exchange for my honest, unbiased opinion.
