Jesus modeled it. God graces it. Scripture commands it. People desire it. And yet the attribute of humility goes against every fiber of our humanity. C. J. Mahaney has not simply written a book with an attractive title. He has provided Godly counsel on steps we can take to insure humility is a way of life not simply a character quality we are chasing.
Written in three sections, Humility begins with an excellent description of the battles we face against our pride and then outlining with Scriptural support God’s definition of greatness. Without this foundation, the third section of the book is simply an empty set of disciplines. It is in the third section that Mahaney outlines several daily practices he has discovered throughout His faith journey that encourage him to move closer to humility rather than farther from it.
This is a must read for anyone desiring to decrease in their lives so that God might increase in it. I give Humility: True Greatness five stars. This will be one of several books I re-read consistently!
