5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the Best Book Ever Written on Humility October 17, 2000
Format:Paperback
This book is a must read for every Christian. I have never read a book which so accurately defines Biblical humility. Murray shows how humility is a mindset and lifestyle, not a feeling. Humility is the one-word definition of every Christian's life--or it should be. Humility is the one-word description of all Christ was and is and of how He lived as our example to follow. The most amazing truth in this book is that which speaks of humility being a quality not resulting from sin, but from grace (God working within the believer). Jesus was perfect in humility, yet He never sinned. Humility was required on the part of the Son of God in Heaven before He ever became incarnate, so humility is a heavenly, Godlike quality. We need not sin to be humble; we need to be like Jesus as found in Mark 10:45 to be humble. In other words, for a Christian to be perfectly humble, he/she must be the greatest servant, not the greatest sinner. And if one could be totally sinless in this life, he/she would be perfectly humble. This book is too short, too low in cost, and too easy to read (though challenging in virtually every sentence) for any Christian to have an excuse not to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord... November 21, 2003
Format:Paperback
Anddrew Murray writes with the simplicity and love of a pastor, without soft-soaping or sugar-coating the truth. His abandonment and love for Christ is evident in all of his works and, therefore, qualifies him, in my opinion, to write a book on humility. You can tell he has experienced humility and that it is not just an intellectual excercise.
The one thing I took away from this book is that humility is indeed an experience; you can hear about the need to be humble, read, and even study about it. But unless the Spirit makes humility real personally to the individual, it is possible to become haughty about the need for being humble.
Andrew Murray's works have added so much to my Christian life; I feel closer to G-d because of the things he has written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Want to be a servant of Jesus Christ? September 21, 1998
Format:Paperback
What is true humility? Where did it have its beginning? Is humility necessary for me to have a relationship with God? How do I obtain humility? The answers to these questions along with their Biblical reference are given in this book. This book is to the point on the need for and how to have a servant heart. All of the writings of Andrew Murray are foundational to the Christian faith. The Christian way of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars With all thy getting, GET HUMILTY June 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
If you really think about, Christ's primary attribute is humility. We think His primary attrbute is love. But how could Christ even have come to earth and loved us but for humility. This book opened my eyes to the fact, if this were such an attribute in Christ, I must allow Him to work it into me as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars HUMILITY WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE April 7, 2002
Format:Paperback
I have been reading and rereading this book for about fifteen years. The author has given us a glimpse of what true holiness is and how to obtain it...seeing the humility of Jesus. As we look into the dying face that deserved to stand up for His rights (since He was without sin), yet gave up His rights, we WILL be transformed into His image. His was the face that did not retaliate when He was insulted, and made no threat to get even, and asked His Father to forgive his tormentors!! One of my favorite passages of the book is where Murray gives the picture of water rushing to the lowest places first. The lower we are before the Lord, the more receptive to receive his divine glory!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dying To Self, Living To God June 19, 2000
By Murray
Format:Paperback
Have you ever been called selfish? Have you ever felt sore from being reprimanded by your boss? If so, Andrew Murray's short book Humility can help you out. This well written book is primarily for believing Christians, but it is appropriate for anyone for whom the above questions resonant.
This primer explains the simple virtue of humility from the Bible, with a fundamental focus on Jesus Christ. The author writes that Jesus Christ is the perfect model of humility. Jesus' modest birth, short life, and dramatic death all strikingly demonstrate His humility. In that, Christ being God incarnate did humble Himself in the service of others during His earthly life.
The book challenges the Christian reader to follow the sublime example of Jesus Christ in humility. This quality is described as total dependence on God in Christ, self-denial, and is contrary to pride and conceit. Also, it is a gateway to spiritual growth or a primary virtue. Murray explains that it is the Christian's responsibility to empty oneself of conceit and pride and to be filled up with the blessings of God. One such blessing is that the character free from pride and conceit is strong enough to take personal reprimands.
This reviewer found the heavy use of " death to self " language uncomfortable. However, I felt good about the book for it gave me great hope for personal spiritual growth in the down to earth virtue of humility.
