Description

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 book reminds us that no accomplishment has come by our own effort, but instead it has all been given to us by the grace of God. To God be all glory, and do not allow room for pride in our lives.

    Humility True Greatness, C.J. Mahaney, Multnomah, 2005, 174 pages.C.J. Mahaney wrote a deceptively small book that is packed with a fantastic amount of truth in it. Truth that will cut to the bone and to the heart, every page confronts the reader with the reality that humility is not a heart beat that any of us have in ourselves naturally.Despite this reality, Mahaney writes a book that first creates a desire in the readers heart to grow in humility, and to put to death pride. The entire first section of the book is all about that very issue: Humility vs. Pride. On page 29 a wonderful quote from John Stott does a great job of describing this battle; “At every stage of our Christian development and in every sphere of our Christian discipleship, pride is the greatest enemy and humility our greatest friend.”The book continues into a study on Jesus Christ and the example of perfect humility that he was and is for us. From there Mahaney heads for the heart. The final section of the book is a chapter by chapter run through a variety of steps and practises we can take in our lives to develop humility. Not that developing it can be a pursuit that we can take pride in, that would defeat the purpose of humility all together!This is a book I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to everyone and anyone!

    Excellent book with "rubber meets the road" value on the subject. Read through it in a day. Jesus really did turn the world upside down for his followers. Want to be great? Be Humble. A definite re-read.

    Great read. Very applicable to everyday life and living in submission to Christ. I read it on a plane to Thailand.
