Helpful advice on humility
Posted February 22, 2010
By joanna,


In Humility, C.J. Mahaney writes of the importance of humility for Christians and how we can become more humble.

The first section of the book deals with why humility is important and biblical. Some of this section was quite interesting but it tended to drag on somewhat leaving me tempted to skip forward. Someone interested enough in humility to buy the book probably isn't going to require that much convincing.

Further into the book, Mahaney discusses practical things we can do to develop humility. This is where the book shines. His advice is both on personal disciplines and acting humble in the context of various types of relationships. I'm sure everyone will find something to take on from this section. I found some ideas for developing humility that I wouldn't have thought of myself.

Mahaney also writes about a Christian response to suffering. He bases this on the book of Habakkuk. While at times I was a little lost as to what it had to do with humility, it was nonetheless worthwhile to read.


In reviewing this book I listened to the audiobook version. The narrator tended to read a little on the slow side with frequent pauses. For most of the book this wasn't much of a problem but it made the long first section a bit harder to get through.

I recommend this book. I think all Christians would benefit from this in some way.
