Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's always with confidence and joy that I recommend Wayne Mack's books. He's so thorough and so thoroughly biblical that, when you read them, you know you've just spent valuable time with our Lord and His powerful Word." --Elyse Fitzpatrick, author and counselor

"Sometimes a book reads you while you are reading it. This is that kind of book. It has eyes!" --Jim Elliff, President of Christian Communicators Worldwide

"Wayne and Joshua Mack do an excellent job of diagnosing the cancer of pride and providing inspired biblical treatment. With the scalpel of Scripture, they carefully do surgery on the reader's soul. Drawing wisdom from biblical examples and great preachers of the past, they offer practical instruction for extracting pride and replacing it with its counterpart—humility." --Jack Hughes, Senior Pastor, Calvary Bible Church, Adjunct Professor of Homiletics at The Master's Seminary

Format: Paperback
As I read Humility by Wayne Mack I could not help but draw comparisons with C.J. Mahaney's excellent book by the same title. I am glad to say that both books are deeply challenging and saturated in Scripture. Both men are skilled expositors of Scripture and both have a heart for the church. While I will go so far as to recommend both of these books I do not wish to make further comparison between them as each stands on its own merits.

"This book was written," says Mack, "in an attempt to understand pride and humility from a biblical perspective and to help us diminsh the destructive pride factor and to increase the true humility factor in our lives." To do this the author uses a "four-D" approach. He begins with biblical definitions of pride and humility and then discusses how pride and humility display themselves. Finally, he explains how true humility can be developed and destructive pride can be diminished in the life of the believer.

The importance of this topic can hardly be overstated. The Scriptures make it clear to us that humility is an exceedingly important aspect of the Christian's character. The Bible continually exhorts God's people to be humble and to rid ourselves of all pride. We are often told that God pours out his blessing on those who display a humble heart. Pride strikes right to the heart of God as it is a proclamation on the part of a person that he considers his concerns to be more important than submission to his Creator. "Pride consists in attributing to ourselves the honor, privileges, prerogatives, rights and power that are due to God alone. Thus, it is the very root and essence of sin because pride, at its core, is idolatry of self. A proud person has put himself or herself in God's place."

Humility stands exactly opposed to pride.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Jacques Schoeman on November 14, 2007
Format: Paperback
'The path to true humility begins with the new birth. The Bible makes it clear that no unsaved person can be truly humble. The beginning of true humility then, is the awareness of our total depravity that comes with the initial work of the Holy Spirit in salvation.' p 123

The book focuses on the lost art of humility, one that can never be overstated too much, or repeated enough. To use an example, to continually speak of the fruit of virtue, but decline to ever apologize, seek repentance or ask forgiveness when one transgresses against his brothers, are indications of sure-footed pride.

The battle against pride is one we all should take up - repentance is surely the most sure way of dealing with this?

'Our pride wars against the admission that there is no good in us. Our sinful condition forever struggles with our total dependence on grace.' B Chapell, Christ-Centered Preaching p 105

Dr Mack writes that as a witness to pagan kings of God's sovereignty, Daniel's greatest service was to point out the excessive pride of King Nebuchadnezzar, and reveal God's coming judgment upon it. pp. 100-3

I thought this book was very good. The author breaks down humility and pride into their different aspects and looks at each. There are numerous scripture passages referenced, and recommendations from the author as to biographies to read of Christians who struggled with or displayed humility. There are also numerous methods of application addressed to work on increasing humility in your heart. I worked through this book slowly with my Bible, reading every scripture passage as cited, and found it it be a very helpful resource that will stay in my library.

Pride is encouraged in every arena these days with the understanding that self-esteem must be encouraged. Pride is disdained in others, but easily overlooked in ourselves. Humility, on the other hand, is admired in others, but frequently avoided in our own lives. Wayne Mack takes the reader on a journey of Biblical truth during which he highlights the pitfalls and consequences of pride from God's perspective. He then encourages believers, in a practical way, to actively pursue humility before the Lord as a solution.

The best and only good book on humility. I've searched on Amazon for a long time before I found this book. The author is a pastor
in a church.
He really explores humility and pride in depth. He's very thorough. Examples of pride: a violent, argumentative, or critical person.
He identifies ways you can be prideful that I've never thought of, and then presents ways you can develop humility in yourself.
Important that every Christian read and apply this book. The book is just that good.
