Humility: True Greatness
Recommended by Alan Groves of Westminster Theological Seminary. See all of Professor Grove's recommendations.
Professor Recommendation: This book is a for all who struggle with humility. With characteristic wit and deceptive simplicity, Mahaney exposes the rag and bone shop of the human heart for what it is and offers practical, biblical advice for the daily destruction of pride. God opposes the proud; if that thought worries you as it should, then this book is required reading. - Carl R. Trueman, professor of historical theology and church history, November 2005.
Publisher's Review: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.
