"In The Holiness of God, R. C. Sproul says that the reason he wrote a book was holiness was a deep awareness of his own lack of holiness. Similarly, William Farley wrote this book out of an awareness of his lack of humility. . . . Gospel-Powered Humility carefully grounds humility in the good news of the gospel. This is a book that will teach and convict every believer." --Tim Challies, blogger, author, pastor, and social media consultant

Despite the difficult and complex, thologically rich topics of discussion, Farley manages to clearly and humbly articulate profound pearls of biblical wisdom. All believers should make this book a part of their library. This is a book that I will read over and over again.
take heed to lessons in this book. If you are serious about your faith this is a must read.
Part one overviews the problem which faces every human being. That problem is identified as a soul-numbing sin - the sin of pride. Of course, the remedy for pride is humility which is defined upfront by the author: "Humility is the ability to see spiritual reality, to see things as they really are. It is the capacity to see myself in God's light, in the context of his holiness and my sinfulness. In other words, it is the ability to see self, and this world, through God's eyes."
Farley underscores a major paradox that runs through the book: "The proud man think he is humble, but the humble man thinks he is proud. The humble man sees his arrogance. He sees it clearly, and as a result he aggressively pursues a life of humility, but he doesn't think of himself as humble. The proud man is completely unaware of his pride. Of all men he is most convinced that he is humble." The author exposes and addresses this paradox throughout the remainder of his work.
Part two applies the gospel to the humble man. The author shows how people are humbled by God's wrath, the final judgment, the sinfulness of sin, gospel-centered faith and preaching. This section hits readers between the eyes and does a terrific job of revealing the biblical categories for life change.
Finally, part three addresses the fear of man and humility in leadership. The practical application in this section is certainly worth the price of the book.
Gospel-Powered Humility is one of those books that never made it to the best sellers list. William Farley writes with strong biblical conviction which is laced with pastoral wisdom and sensitivity. If readers long for a feel-good book that panders to sin and strokes the ego, look elsewhere. But if readers are looking for truth which transforms, look no further than Gospel-Powered Humility.
