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.
PSALMS 71:2 DELIVER ME IN THY RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND CAUSE ME TO ESCAPE INCLINE THINE EAR UNTO ME, AND SAVE ME I titled this book The Great X-Cape because I always thought of myself as invincible, as most of us do, and some more than others. The Bible says that as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. (Proverbs 23:7) Not in this case! Imagine having Aquaman as your hero but he can't even swim, or Superman and Batman and they can't fly. I had my own self-made cape that I wore everywhere I went, being my own superhero. I had much faith in myself, in my abilities, my talents, my intelligence, and all of the things that failed me in my time of need. Today, I am a retired superhero, surrendering my cape to the One who rightfully deserves to wear it. The One who does not fail in our time of need, who truly is my Hero, and has saved me from the biggest enemy I've ever had: myself. There are many things in my life that God has allowed me to escape from, and by the end of my book I will have listed a lot of them, but truly, I just can't tell it all. By coming to the end of faith in myself, I found faith in Him. By coming to the end of my own life, I finally found His, and that is truly the greatest escape that we can ever make!
"Has Old Age a special Ministry? Yes, I realized joyfully, it certainly has. It is no longer the Ministry of DOING, but the Ministry of BEING -" Hannah Hurnard with her special gift of story telling in this book Shining Hour Of Departure has given us the facts about aging and coming to grips with our usefulness in the Kingdom of God up to the very end. A great encouragement for any elderly person that finds themselves questioning their usefulness near the end of their life. This book abolishes the fear of death by focusing on the joy of life. Hurnard's early writings, Hinds' Feet on High Places and the sequel Mountain of Spices have been embraced by the Christian community for decades, still ranking as Christian classics. This special letter, The Shinning Hour of Departure written in her later years says this: "For several years I had been conscious that more and more of my rather older friends, and even some younger ones, had been taking their departure from this world, and, not infrequently, amongst those who remained, I had heard such wistful remarks as these: "Well, of course one can't expect to do as much now as when one was younger." "One doesn't want to have to lay everything down, you know, and to have nothing left." "Its difficult to find oneself laid aside and put on the shelf." "Its lonely when the friends of your own generation have all gone and the children are grown up and living lives of their own." Her answer to them brought them hope and purpose. She goes on to say. "Being an example and inspiration and strengthener of the weak simply by being a demonstration of the grace and love of the Lord who call us to follow the way that He went."
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.
