When Jesus "made himself nothing ... taking the nature of a servant," He modeled for all believers true humility. Murray calls this "our true nobility" and "the distinguishing feature of discipleship." In twelve brief but powerful chapters, Murray journeys through Scripture and Christ's life, underscoring the utmost need for humility---as opposed to pride---in the Christian's life. With insightful, penetrating clarity, Murray calls all Christians to turn from pride, empty themselves, and study the character of Christ to be filled with His grace. Often called the best work on humility ever written, this edition has been sensitively revised into modern English, includes a biography on Murray as well as photographs, and a full color timeline of selected Christian and historical events and people on the inside covers.
This is a marvelous book about humility Bigger ones have been written but no better ones Nor has any other author who wrote on humility ever journeyed from the strong pride to deep humility that Andrew Murray did
