Emphasizing how pride can damage relationships, this practical and inspirational book provides advice on how to demonstrate humility and build a relationship with God. The biblical definition of pride is explored and examples of true humility in Jesus found throughout the New Testament are given. Discussed are the ways in which humility releases individuals into their true selves and transforms relationships. Suggestions are included for learning to practice humility regardless of the situation.
There are few books on the topic of humility, and of those few, most are classics whose authors died many years ago. This book is contemporary and tackles an issue that is at the heart of true Christianity. A book on this topic is refreshing and challenging, and deserves a twenty-first century treatment.
