Excellent Book!  Feb 13, 2007
This is the best book that I have read by Andrew Murray, and it has had a major impact in my life. I highly recommend it!
 
Remarkable  Jan 11, 2007
Andrew Murray takes a topic that is so commonplace in Christian circles, and takes it to a new depth of understanding. When the book is finished it is easy to see that the Church has overlooked and taken for granted this quality of Jesus.
 
A Must Read for Christian Leaders  Jan 4, 2007
Humility is a book that belongs on the desk (not just the bookshelf) of every Christian leader. It is a small book-- only a little over 100 pages-- and it was a quick and easy read, as far as reading words goes. Digesting the book and, more importantly, living out the book, will require much more time, diligence, and intentionality. I read the Bethany House version with updated language which probably made the reading process a bit smoother.

It is packed full of Scripture, quotes from the Church Fathers, and challenges to a life that will require every ounce of our attention, prayer, and devotion.

Murray begins with a examination of humility as exemplified and taught in the life of Christ. He then continues to look at humility in the lives and teachings of the disciples. Finally, he shows how humility is practically linked to our faith, relationships, happiness, and even success in life. He examines some of the false views of humility and gives a Biblical-based definition of humility as "the displacement of self by the enthronement of God. Where God is all, self is nothing." Simply, humility is "being fully occupied with God."

In the midst of a lot of self-help Christian writings, this book was refreshing and challenging. It helped me gain a new and more Biblical understanding of humility, and it moved me to do a lot of prayer and self-examination. I probably marked and underlined and commented more in this book than any other I have read. Humility should be read by every Christian leader, and it is a book that I will surely revisit often over the course of my life.

Pastor C. J. Mahaney wrote a book by the same title, Humility, and I am currently reading it. I am curious to know how the topic is addressed over a century later.
 
Slow and uninspiring  Dec 26, 2006
Murray (d. 1917) gives us what is considered a lasting text in Christian spirituality. It is hard to over-prepare the reader for the task of trudging through this brief but slow, hundred page mini-book.

Murray's musing on humility are good to the end that it is not a popular topic. It is an overlooked topic that offers no easy approach, a topic which was a hallmark of Christian spiritual preaching and writing in the Middle Ages, now largely lost.

One hesitates to critique a book on humility for fear of the immediate, ironic reprisals, the likes of which are usually targeted at the playground bully. But the truth is that Murray uses very many words to say not very much. His writing is clear but painfully lacking in elucidating illustrations or pithy observations. Most of what he states is matter-of-fact, uninspired, and inapplicable. As he rounds the last bend, like so many Reformed sermons, it seems to dawn on him that he needs to send his congregation home with something to do, so he tells us to wake up every morning reminding ourselves of our own neediness (p. 86), and then in the last paragraph, to take a month-long silent retreat to pray that God would take away our pride.

It is clear that Murray has had a series of life-changing experiences that he is grasping to communicate, but it seems unlikely that the experience is here grasped or explained. One walks away wishing now to see an autobiographical or even fictional account of someone who has lived humbly, so as to say, "Here is what I mean."
 
A book to add to your spiritual library.  Nov 9, 2006
Though only 110 pages in length and covering 12 chapters, this small book is certainly powerful. I discovered truths in it that convicted me, and I gained many insights into humility and pride. The author broke down humility and its opposite, pride, in such a straight forward way that it was easy to see the difference. Adding this book to ones scriptural library will benifit greatly.
