1. Humility: The Journey Toward Holiness (2001)
When Jesus "made himself nothing…taking the nature of a servant," He modeled for all believers true humility. Andrew Murray calls this "our true nobility" and "thedistinguishing feature of discipleship." With insightful, penetrating clarity, Murray calls all Christians to turn from pride, empty themselves, and study the character of Christ to be filled with His grace. Often called the best work on humility ever written, this edition has been edited for today’s reader….
Saint Benedict’s fifth-century guide to humility offers the antidote to the epidemic of stress and depression overwhelming modern young adults. But the language of The Rule by Saint Benedict is medieval, and its most passionate advocates are cloistered monks and nuns. How then does this ancient wisdom translate into advice for ordinary people?With candor, humor, and a unique approach to classical art, Father Augustine, a high school teacher and coach, breaks down Saint Benedict’s method into twelve pithy steps for finding inner peace in a way that can be applied to anyone’s…
3. Humility (Essential Christian Classics) (2014)
“Humility is perfect quietness of heart. It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised. It is to have a blessed home in the Lord, where I can go in and shut the door, and kneel to my Father in secret, and am at peace as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and above is trouble.” Andrew Murray, Humility…
4. Humility (2015)
“It is a most valuable book, inasmuch as it brings many of the choicest gems from the works of this eighteenth century teacher of holiness within the compass of a handy volume.”—Record. Despite being written in the nineteenth century, this little book on the topic of humility remains a treasure for Christians today. If you truly want to know how to be a humble Christian—and discover the beauty of holiness—you will be sure to read this work from Andrew Murray….
The Blue Ridge Parkway meanders through miles of rolling Virginia mountains. It’s a route made famous by natural beauty and the simple rhythms of rural life.And it’s in this setting that Hannah Anderson began her exploration of what it means to pursue a life of peace and humility. Fighting back her own sense of restlessness and anxiety, she finds herself immersed in the world outside, discovering a classroom full of forsythia, milkweed, and a failed herb garden. Lessons about soil preparation, sour mulch, and grapevine blights reveal the truth about our dependence on God, finding rest, and fighting…
6. Humility: The Path to Holiness (2019)
Humility brought Jesus from heaven, motivated His ministry, and kept Him on the cross to provide salvation for sinners. Andrew Murray gives us a special insight into Christians obtaining this quality of character Jesus had. You will not walk away from this book without a fresh look into what it means to be humble and an invigorated desire to have this divine virtue. •Updated language•Notes from the original publication with extra notes of definitions from biblical scholars defining Jesus as “Son of Man” and “Son of God,” and other key biblical terms: humility, sin, redemption, sanctification, atonement, the Trinity, and the…
Often so practical in application that it is overlooked, the answer is found by studying the life and words of Christ (whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your slave). This little book is a loud call to all committed Christians to prove that meekness and lowliness of heart is the evidence by which those who follow the meek and lowly Lamb of God are to be known. Never mind that your initial efforts will be misunderstood, taken advantage of, or even resisted. Instead, learn from the One who came not to be ministered unto, but to serve. For a Christian to be alive, for the life of…
BOLD Humility is that secret “it” factor that we look for when trying to discover greatness. It is the balance of confidence and grace. It is wisdom coupled with vulnerability. It is the ability to bravely embrace what you know while being willing to seek support where you need it the most. In this book, Dave takes a look at how educators can embrace BOLD humility to help tap into the greatness inside all of us. By sharing his own struggles coupled with his own successes, Dave paves a path that allows us all to walk away feeling empowered and ready to tackle the challenges that await us all. What we do they do. From…
9. The Blessing of Humility (2016)
We all admire humility when we see it. But how do we practice it? How does humility―the foundational virtue of the normal Christian life―become a normal part of our everyday lives?Jerry Bridges sees in the Beatitudes a series of blessings from Jesus, a pattern for humility in action. Starting with poverty in spirit―an acknowledgment that in and of ourselves we are incapable of living holy lives pleasing to God―and proceeding through our mourning over personal sin, our hunger and thirst for righteousness, our experience of persecutions large and small, and more, we discover that humility is itself a blessing: At…
10. Humility of Heart (2012)
IN Paradise there are many Saints who never gave alms on earth: their poverty justified them. There are many Saints who never mortified their bodies by fasting, or wearing hair shirts: their bodily infirmities excused them. There are many Saints too who were not virgins: their vocation was otherwise. But in Paradise there is no Saint who was not humble….
Booklet – Biblical Perspective for resolving conflict and communication problems effectively….
Small, powerful book on humility—what it is, why we should have it. Murray says it is the fundamental virtue for all Christians. This makes sense to me, because I see how its antithesis, pride, is the root of so much sin. Reading this book has helped me be more alert to opportunities to die to myself and put others first. I have a long way to I highly recommend this amazing book on humility! It has a new look at humility that I believe is the correct way to view it. I’ve heard before that humility was the opposite of pride, but this book shows how that is not true. It also teaches how we can be confident and humble at the same time and that is how God intend us to be!
