Make haste, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart upon the mountains of spices.  

-Song of Solomon 8:14

"I have tried to show as clearly as possible that the very characteristics and weaknesses of temperament with which we were born...can be transformed into their exact opposites and can therefore produce in us the loveliest of all qualities."

-Hannah Hurnard ________________________

An allegory about human weaknesses and strengths comparing the spices in Song of Solomon to the fruits of the Spirit.

Mountains of Spices, a sequel to Hind's Feet On High Places, is a powerful allegory that personifies unhappy, tormenting attitudes of mind, heart and temperament.

Joy and Peace  

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.

"love turned outward is true life."   

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."  In the words 

of a song sung on the Mountain of Calamus where the reeds of gentleness grow:

He loves thee far too well               To leave thee in thy self-made hell,  A Savior is thy Lord. ________________________
