Overview
Be Transformed by Christ's Example "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." - 1 Peter 5:5 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.

Publishers Description
Be Transformed by Christ's Example
"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." --1 Peter 5:5
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 is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit."
--Isaiah 66:2, ESV
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.
"C. J. Mahaney is not humble. At least, that's what he'll tell you. And that's one reason he's so well qualified to write this book."
"-Mark E. Dever, Senior pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Author, Nine Marks of a Healthy Church
"
""A much-needed wake-up call on this important subject. I highly recommend this book." "
"-Jerry Bridges, Author of The Pursuit of Holiness
"
"This is the right book from the right man at the right time."
"-R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Story Behind the Book
"Given pride's pervasive presence in my life, I come to this book in holy fear, yet inspired by God's promises to be humble and sobered by his warnings to the proud (Isaiah 66:2b, 1 Peter 5:5b). Scripture reveals to us that, while pride was the first and most serious sin, God is decisively drawn to humility and is specifically supportive of the humble. Only Christ has fully obeyed Isaiah 66:2b ("This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word"), yet He did so as our representative How marvelous that in our daily battle against pride we can rely on God's grace, through the gospel, and thus bring honor and glory to God." --C. J. Mahaney

How Humility helped me  Oct 19, 2008
This book is one of the best books I have ever read. I would recommend it for anyone who needs or wants to be more humble. It has broadened my prospective not only as a Christian but as a recovering alcoholic. This book is so touching and moving that I couldn't put it down. It makes me believe that "God is good all the time and all the time God is good". This a true MaHaney masterpice!

Sincerely,
Lisa Knizek
 
Reflections on Humility by C. J. Mahaney   Sep 23, 2008
I just finished reading Humility and it one of the rare books that I am sad to finish. It was a deeply challenging book that I wish every Christian would read and I am certain that every Christian would benefit from.

Mahaney defines Humility as "honestly assessing ourselves in light of God's holiness and our sinfulness." I found that definition to be powerful. It was a humbling experience to be forced to realize that because of my sinfulness I deserve death and hell, that is what I deserve yet God has chosen to show me grace and mercy through the Cross of His Son. So when I look at all the good in my life I am forced to confess that I can take credit for none of it. It is all simply an opportunity to praise the goodness of my great God.

Two of Mahaney's strengths shine in this book; he is always a gracious and is open about his own struggles. The book is not written as a learned treatise from a man who portrays himself as a paradigm of humility, rather as a shared education from a proud man pursuing humility urging us to join him in that pursuit.

Mahaney is also intensely practical. Throughout the book there is guidance on how to cultivate the attitude of humility. I found especially helpful his guidance on how to start the day and I am already benefiting from it. He advises that we should begin each day acknowledging our dependence on God and expressing gratefulness to Him. There is a great deal of practical guidance of this nature throughout the book. But starting the day in this fashion has changed the nature of how I face the obstacles of the day, how I approach the appointments and duties of each day, they are no longer seen as opportunities to work or to accomplish things or even simply to do what must be done; but rather as opportunities to rest in God's strength and to see Him at work.

I commend this book to you and all the work of C. J. Mahaney. May God Bless him and preserve him so that he can continue to be a conduit of blessing to the church.
 
Easy Read but a Hard Quality to Live  Sep 7, 2008
The book is a swift and easy read, the first time through. Once you put it down you have to pick it back up and then study it, in depth, and try to soak its truths deep into your heart. The shadow a true Christian should cast is one of real love and humility and C.J. Mahaney teaches one the importance of it, how Jesus IS humility, and how we need to live like Him.
Loved it, and am busy trying to pursue Humility, True Greatness.
 
ouch  Jul 27, 2008
this is a great study of what I am not... ie humble... Yes, I agree with the entire premise, but I still would have preferred being comfortably ignorant of my arrogance and spiritual pride... yes, the cross is the only solution, and the disciplines suggested are simple, but to do them means that I would have to actually change...

I guess that was the point...

or the other point that it is not actually about me.
 
The Value of Humility  Apr 24, 2008
Humility is not a bestselling topic. In a world that celebrates pride, achievement, and the success and glory of individuals, it is difficult to convince many that greatness lies in reverence. In his book, "Humility, True Greatness," C.J. Mahanney gives us hope that humility still has its value. He makes clear in his introduction his qualifications for writing this book.

"I'm a proud man pursuing humility by the grace of God. I don't write as an authority on humility. I write as a fellow pilgrim walking with you on the path set before us by our humble savior."

This book is very practical. Mahanney starts out writing of the dangers of pride and the blessings of living humbly. He then describes how not only the Bible but also the examples of corporate America show that it is most often driven leaders that "were self-effacing and modest" who rose to the top. Even more rewarding is the concept that "humility draws down the gaze of [...] God," but that it takes God to practice genuine humility.

In the second half of this book, Mahanney suggests to the reader how to practice this journey to pursue humility. Chapters include "As Each Day Begins," "As Each Day Ends," "Identifying Evidences of Grace," and "Encouraging Others," and each gives great stories and examples to cultivate a life of humility and more vivid understanding of its presence in daily living.

Mahanney finishes the book describing the legacy of greatness left behind after a life of humility, and gives us a list of suggestions to reference as we seek to apply these ideas to our lives.

After listening to a pastor give an address to his congregation on the topic of "Finding Joy in Humility" (Pastor Mark Driscoll, Mars Hill Church, Seattle), I remembered his reference of Mahanney's book, and used the power of this site.com to acquire my own copy right away. The book has a lot to offer to anyone who might open up their heart to the principle that is guaranteed to lead to true greatness.
