Product Description

God clearly states that he is drawn to the humble. He's also clear that He opposes the proud. These two, humility and pride, cannot coexist. Where one is fostered, the other is defeated.

Which will you pursue? C.J. Mahaney paints a striking picture of the daily battle quietly raging within every Christian and asks whether you will passively accommodate the enemy of your soul, pride, or actively cultivate your best friend, humility. When you acknowledge the deception of pride and intentionally humble yourself, you become free to savor abundant mercies and unlikely graces. You will find a new life is yours - a life God richly favors. A God-glorifying life you don't want to miss.

Publisher's Description

"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." —1 Peter 5:5

A battle rages within every one of us every day. It’s the clash between our sense of stubborn self-sufficiency and God’s call to recognize that we’re really nothing without Him. It’s pride versus humility. And it’s a fight we can’t win without looking repeatedly to Christ and the cross. C. J. Mahaney raises a battle cry to daily, diligently, and deliberately weaken our greatest enemy (pride) and cultivate our greatest friend (humility). His thorough examination clarifies misconceptions, revealing the truth about why God detests pride and turns His active attention to the humble. Because pride is never passive, defeating it demands an intentional attack. The blessing that follows is God’s abundant favor.

"This is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit."
—Isaiah 66:2, ESV

God clearly states that He is drawn to the humble. He’s also clear that He opposes the proud. These two, humility and pride, cannot coexist. Where one is fostered, the other is defeated. Which will you pursue? When you acknowledge the deception of pride and intentionally humble yourself, you become free to savor abundant mercies and unlikely graces. You will find a new life is yours—a life God richly favors. A God-glorifying life you don’t want to miss.

C.J. Mahaney’s latest book, Humility: True Greatness, is an amazing challenge to believers to think seriously about how much weight God has placed on humility. The challenge of this book springboards from Isaiah 66:2, “This is the one whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.” As the title hints at, Mahaney has put together a concise and practical book that calls us to seek humility, which is how God defines true greatness.
The author has a clear, yet personable writing style and Humility is a prime example. He tackles such topics as defining biblical humility (“Humility is honestly assessing ourselves in light of God’s holiness and our sinfulness.” p. 22) and pride (“Pride is when sinful human beings aspire to the status and position of God and refuse to acknowledge their dependence upon Him.” p. 31).
Mahaney also does a wonderful job giving practical encouragements of how to foster humility in our daily lives: through prayer, acting in grace toward others, and opening oneself up for correction. There is even a checklist summary of practical things we can do to strive after humility at the end of the book.
Of course, a lot more could have been written, but an exhaustive manifesto on humility does not seem to be Mahaney’s ambition. Rather, this excellent book is a crisp, if not humble, approach to a hugely important topic in the life of a Christ-follower.
All in all, Mahaney has hit another home run. I can’t imagine any believer not being challenge by this convicting and gracious book. He has such an accessible style that many readers will be able to devour Humility in one sitting. I would recommend that you go at a slower pace and let these powerful challenges transform your life. In fact, I’ve already bought several copies that I have been doling out to my coworkers. Thanks C.J. – please keep books like this coming! – Todd Burgett, Christian Book Previews.com
