I don't often read this type of book, so I wasn't sure what I'd get out of it. But right away, "The Power of Humility" spoke directly to me. The book discussed people's tendency -- MY tendency -- to compare my life against what I think others think it should be. The very first chapter addressed that problem -- and thus it was very meaningful to me. While not every chapter so directly met a personal need of mine, they all came with well-told stories as illustrations.
I was also pleased to see the interesting and lengthy transcript of an interview with Rosa Parks at the end of the book. The interview played into the book's theme of humility. But aside from that, what a handy resource on such a historic figure! It was completely unexpected, but such a treasure.
I was pleasantly surprised! While there are a number of biblical references, the impact on me was the stories that related to personal experiences. When I acted arrogantly (not humbly) the outcomes were generally not favorable. When I put my own well- being above others, relationships suffered. Through his personal stories, his experiences and his insight, Clay was able to connect with me and provoke a new perspective on relationships as well as a renewed reflection on personal experiences.
I read for entertainment but I also read to learn and acquire new perspectives for my personal growth. Clay's book "The Power of Humility" hit the mark for me and I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in building more powerful relationships
The book is several short chapters with discussion questions at the end of each one that would make it an excellent resource and guide for a personal or small group study. Easy to read and filled with scripture and examples, Clay's book will confirm those deep spiritual truths that we may already know yet have some difficulty in applying to our life on a routine basis and in all circumstances.
I highly recommend this book. Thanks, Clay, for putting this book together. This old world will be little bit better for it - I believe I will.
