Description : HUMILITY..... The deepest humility is the secret of the truest happiness, of a joy that nothing can destroy. Andrew Murray Audio excerpts download Color timeline Illustrated Detailed indexes Author biographies A thorough study guide Sensitively revised in modern English One of an expanding collection People of great ability, confidence, and power are also people of great accomplishment. They have every right to be proud. Or do they? Andrew Murray poses the question, and God provides the answer. Murray was a strong, capable man who was so ''in control'' that he tried to stop a revival in his church in South Africa for which his father had prayed for 60 years. But he soon discovered that power isn't rooted in pride. In truth, he learned that ''pride goes before destruction.'' God taught Murray the ways and rewards of humility, and its relationship to faith, holiness, happiness, peace, and exaltation. He shares the lessons he learned the hard way. Cleverly organized, easy to read, easy to understand, and deeply profound, this classic has been acclaimed as the greatest book ever written on the subject of humility.
Description : The Power and Freedom of a Humble Life Pride is often the true reason why we get our feelings hurt, why we feel rejection, why we won’t admit to mistakes, why we want to be seen with certain people, and why we stay angry. Jesus gives us the perfect example of a powerful life lived without conceit, smugness, or arrogance. So why do we not want to admit to our pride? It is because of our pride! In The Power of Humility, R. T. Kendall challenges us to look deeply into our hearts and motives to recognize the pride and self-righteousness there. Using personal stories and enlightening examples from the Bible, he demonstrates how pride interferes with a close relationship with God and reveals how to overcome pride and become more like Jesus.
Description : St Augustine's insight was that it is only the merciful humility of God that could penetrate our armoured pride. As we follow this book through Lent and through the Biblical narrative what begins to emerge is that God's merciful humility is the source of life. The chapters of Jane Williams's book include: 'Humble Beginnings'; 'How to win friends and influence nobody'; 'Reigning from a tree' and 'Risen and ascended into humility'. Her reflective Lent book will be a trusted guide for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of God's humility during this religious period.
Description : The virtue of humility is a much debated subject. To many, humility is an attractive character trait in others, the opposite of pride and arrogance. Yet many philosophers, be they ancient or modern, find little value in humility as a virtue. For theAristotelian moral tradition, humility is an impediment to greatness. Modern philosophers take this sentiment further, asserting that humility only leads to unhappiness and human debasement. The Christian intellectual tradition, however, provides a contrast to these negative appraisals of humility. St Augustine of Hippo is an eloquent and robust proponent of the value of humility. Unlike the thinkers of the classical and modern philosophic traditions, Augustine asserts that humility is not onlya significant virtue; it is the indispensable foundation of human greatness. In The Greatness of Humility, Joseph J. McInerney traces how Augustine makes his argument regarding the importance of humility and shows how his position measures up to those of his philosophical rivals.
Description : This study examines how the New Testament scriptures might form and foster intellectual humility within Christian communities. It is informed by recent interdisciplinary interest in intellectual humility, and concerned to appreciate the distinctive representations of the virtue offered by the New Testament writers on their own terms. It argues that the intellectual virtue is cast as a particular expression of the broader Christian virtue of humility, something which itself proceeds from the believer's union with Christ, through which personal identity is reconstituted by the operation of the Holy Spirit. This demands that we speak of 'virtue' in ways determined by the acting presence of Jesus Christ that overcomes sin and evil in human lives and in the world. The Christian account of the intellectual virtue of humility is framed by this conflict, as the minds of believers who live together within the Christian community struggle with natural arrogance and selfishness, and come to share in the mind of Christ. The new identity that emerges creates a fresh openness to truth, as the capacity of the sinful mind to distort truth is exposed and challenged. This affects not just knowledge and perception, but also volition: for these ancient writers, a humble mind makes good decisions that reflect judgements decisively shaped by the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ. By presenting 'humility of mind' as a characteristic of the One who is worshipped—Jesus Christ—the New Testament writers insist that we acknowledge the virtue not just as an admission of human deficiency or limitation, but as a positive affirmation of our rightful place within the divine economy.
Description : Humility is the only ladder to the highest honor in God’s kingdom. It is being and doing nothing by ourselves so that God can be all. It is the acknowledgement that every child of God is but a vessel through which the living God can manifest the riches of His wisdom, power and goodness. HUMILITY reveals an entirely new side of this little understood Christian grace. Andrew Murray shows that humble dependence on God is the basis of all genuine blessing. It is the highest virtue of man and the secret to true nobility.
Description : What is humility, really? Is it possible to live a life of true humility? Is it even something we should seek to attain? Murray dispels common misconceptions about humility and helps unwrap its mystery in a practical and transformative way. He invites us to follow Christ into the deep, hidden fullness and delight of a life lived wholly dependent on God. “Nothing is more natural and beautiful and blessed than to be nothing, that God may be all…it is not sin that humbles most, but grace.”
Description : What is Jesus like? What kind of a person is he? Is he emotional or stoic? Is he proud or humble? Is he aloof or friendly? This book attempts to answer these types of questions. After demonstrating that Jesus is the promised Christ and that he is both divine and human, this book examines Jesus' personal characteristics as they are displayed in the four Gospels. The four Gospels are clearly not a typical biography of Jesus. Nonetheless, they do provide an informative account of his life here on earth, from which we can discover what he is like as a person.
