Publisher's Summary

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.

Excellent book lots of guidance!

Loved this book because the act of humility is using the presence of grace as you learn to serve Him! This book is for that purpose in my Humble opinion! Some references to other good books as well!

An easy to Follow Walkthrough on Humility!

CJ Mahaney nails a great overview on humility. It's an overview that isn't too weighty theologically. He covers some areas of Humility I hadn't previously thought about. This book is peppered with some light humor and personal stories. I recommend this to anyone who is looking to understand Biblical Humility Better.

Also, I enjoyed the voice of the Reader!

Too Bible focused

Super biased toward Bible info for me. Instead of being for everyone, it's more oriented toward only Christians. I was hoping it would be more on humility in general

You Will be Humbled

Some great nuggets of wisdom in the book. Serves more like reminders than great revelations. When the author tells you that "this is an important chapter" if you have pride you may be irritated, other the humble will be even more humbled!
