Dickson's study of humility in Humilitas is a wonderful groundbreaking book. It is part study of a virtue throughout history, and part call to personal and spiritual transformation. It is engaging and smart, and I recommend every leader grab this book and read it closely.
As I said, one part of the book discusses the history of humility. It speaks about how humility was depised by many philosophers and leaders in the ancient world. Then, it goes on to show how the whole attitude of ancient culture toward humility changed after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. This is, the author shows, without dispute.
The book also discusses why humility is good, and how humility is effectual in several arenas of life and leadership. In its final section, the author attempts to offer some advice and disciplines to generate humility in one's life.
This book is smart, very readable, and compelling. I would recommend Humilitas to anyone and everyone who wants to be a stronger and a better person.
