  • Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The interview with the Chief Shepherd went on for a long time, and when they finally did leave her, it was already late in the evening. She was terrified of being kidnapped and forced to marry her cousin Craven. The Shepherd offered to take her to the High Places, where no Fears could live. #2 The Shepherd told Much-Afraid that she would have to be changed before she could live on the High Places, but that he would help her develop hinds’ feet. He also told her that she would have to receive a new name if she wanted to live in the Kingdom of Love, because no one was allowed to dwell there unless they had the flower of Love blooming in their hearts. #3 The Shepherd gave Much-Afraid the seed of Love, which was shaped like a long, sharply-pointed thorn. She was still afraid of pain, and she did not dare to love unless she were sure of being loved in return. #4 When the seed of Love in your heart is ready to bloom, you will be loved in return. However, you must remember that as soon as you reach the slopes of the mountains, there is a wonderful system of communication from end to end of the Kingdom of Love.

  • Daughters of the Faith: Ordinary Girls Who Lived Extraordinary Lives. 1761—Phillis Wheatley was a little girl of seven or eight years old when she was captured in Africa and brought to America as a slave. But she didn’t let her circumstances keep her down. She learned to read and write in English and Latin, and showed a natural gift for poetry. By the time she was twelve, her elegy at the death of the great pastor George Whitefield brought her worldwide acclaim. Phillis became known to heads of state, including George Washington himself, speaking out for American independence and the end of slavery. She became the first African American to publish a book, and her writings would eventually win her freedom. More importantly, her poetry still proclaims Christ almost 250 years later.

  • Author : Karl Duff
  • Publisher : Winepress Pub

  • ISBN : 1579215181
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Religion
  • Who would know more of the female heart than a woman? Yet the Song of Solomon was written by a man. His inspired writing beautifully expresses the bride's heart and indicates it is not beyond the reach of men to know these things. Visions of the Bride of Christ as well as brides on earth come together in missionary Hannah Hurnard's beautiful allegory, "Hinds Feet in High Places." Come with us on a journey of discipleship viewed through a woman's eyes woven into portraits of the Chief Shepherd and the poetry of King Solomon. Hurnard was clearly an advanced disciple of Jesus Christ. This study should be required exercise for all married men and those who plan to marry. For women, it is an affirmation of their value and uniqueness and a hope for many that God can raise up a righteous Bridegroom for either the married or unmarried. We see in these lessons how a compassionate God is guiding his beloved children -- from nearly utter ruin to the High Places of His perfection.

  • Pages : 132
  • ISBN : 9781512734843
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Religion
  • This book is intended for anyone who has questions about their life experience that are causing them inner dissatisfaction. Spiritual people sometimes face this because they cant make sense of apparent inconsistencies between what they expect from their faith and what they experience in the practical world. Secular people may face a similar type of inner dissatisfaction because external success fails to bring them the type of joy they expect. The writing method uses auto-ethnography a reflection on Adrians personal experience as he connects his story to wider understandings of the way life works. While his Christian worldview is central to the book, its emphasis is on the process. So, readers are encouraged to evaluate the process and models presented, but to insert your own life experience against them for the best benefit.

  • Genre : Health & Fitness
  • This is a book about men who love women. But it is not a collection of love stories. It is a study of the secret, erotic fantasies that men have always kept hidden, a taboo-shattering investigation that reveals the deepest, most conflicting feelings that men have about women, men and their own sexuality. Men in Love goes beyond the socio-sexual cliché of woman seen as either madonna or whore to reveal the conflict of love and rage at the centre of men's emotions and erotic desires. Based on thousands of candid responses from men ranging from their teens to their sixties, Men in Love - startling and shocking - will change men's deepest feelings about their sexuality and make the women who care about them understand them as never before.

  • Genre : Fiction
  • Can two people brought together by desperate circumstances help one another heal, and maybe even begin a new life? New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin’s Send Down the Rain answers the questions of what it means—and what level of sacrifice it takes—to truly love someone. Allie is still recovering from the loss of her family’s beloved waterfront restaurant on Florida’s Gulf Coast when she loses her second husband to a terrifying highway accident. Devastated and losing hope, she shudders to contemplate the future—until a cherished person from her past returns. Joseph has been adrift for many years, wounded in both body and spirit and unable to come to terms with the trauma of his Vietnam War experiences. Just as he resolves to abandon his search for peace and live alone in a remote cabin in the Carolina mountains, he discovers a mother and her two small children lost in the forest. A man of character and strength, he instinctively steps in to help them get back to their home in Florida. There he will return to his own hometown—and witness the accident that launches a bittersweet reunion with his childhood sweetheart, Allie. When Joseph offers to help Allie rebuild her restaurant, it seems the flame may reignite—until a forty-five-year-old secret begins to emerge, threatening to destroy all hope for their second chance at love. Send Down the Rain will take you on a journey that spans the sweltering migrant worker routes of south Florida, muddy battlefields of Vietnam, thickets of northwest North Carolina, and the idyllic shores of America’s most beautiful beach (Cape San Blas). At the story’s center lies the question: What does it mean—and what level of sacrifice does it take—to truly love someone?

    A Journey to the High Places

  • ISBN : 9781621898986
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Religion
  • Since his existence the human being has explored various ways in his quest for God. Part of this search is related to humanity's yearning for true harmony and joy in the world. Christian spirituality, as a unique spirituality one encounters today, imparts various ways one can respond to this longing. One of these ways is through allegorical narratives. Specifically, this study analyzes the spirituality of Hannah Hurnard (1905-1990) by intertextually perusing her most famous allegorical narrative "Hinds' Feet on High Places." A Journey to the High Places is divided into four chapters. In chapter 1 the allegorical narrative is subjectively considered in all its aspects and the central themes are expressed without any reference to other secondary connections. Chapter 2 analyzes the allegorical narrative by relating this narrative with other material that Hannah Hurnard published. These other narratives provide the tools which Hannah employed in the composition of this allegorical narrative. Thus, chapter 2 presents an intertexual analysis between her other publications and "Hinds' Feet on High Places." Likewise, chapter 3 presents another intertextual analysis between the many biblical abstracts and their relation to the narrative, in the hope of showing her biblical interpretations. Several spiritual themes that emerged from the preceding chapters are discussed in chapter 4, presenting a consistent spirituality. In presenting the themes one notes that the strong points and weaknesses of Hannah's spirituality are related to other Christian spiritual traditions. In order to conduct a comprehensive study the introductory section of this study deals with the significance of allegory and spirituality.

And marriage prospects were out of the question . . . until now. Her father has found someone to marry her, and she hopes to use her love of cooking to impress the man and his motherless sons. But when things go horribly wrong, Moriyah is forced to flee. Seeking safety at one of the newly-established Levitical cities of refuge, she is wildly unprepared for the dangers she will face, and the enemies--and unexpected allies--she will encounter on her way.

  • Jesus said, "You must love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself." - Luke10:27 If one had to choose a single verse in the Bible that is a formula for successful living, this would be the one to live by, says Joyce Meyer: love God, yourself and others - in that order. Many Christians get mixed up about love. They know they should love God and others, but many do not understand that loving oneself is one-third of God's equation. They mistakenly think of it as selfishness or self-aggrandizement. Joyce Meyer believes that this misconception is one of the greatest pitfalls in the Christian journey. Loving oneself in a balanced, healthy manner is essential in order to have healthy relationships with God, ourselves and others. Drawing upon her previous work and teaching series as well as original devotions, the author of Power Thoughts examines the three loves that we've been commanded to exhibit.
