Published by iUniverseBooks
“Humility and Pride” is a comprehensive book on Christian humility, from its true meaning and significance in a Christian life to an everyday guide to cultivating humility in our own hearts. Jesus often referred to humility as a necessary condition for acquiring the heavenly kingdom and eternal life. He also left us the most profound and perfect example of humility. The fundamental role of humility is also explained in the writings of the Early Church Fathers and further illustrated by their own lives. This book offers a diligent summary of these sermons, writings and personal examples. Humility can only be acquired through grace, but we first need to understand what humility means and why it is important, have a desire to acquire it and be willing to practice it in our everyday lives. A former abbot and a prominent bishop, the author offers a detailed, down to-earth guidance on how to prepare our hearts for God’s grace.
