God has given us a model to follow in order to be what He wants us to be, and that model is the person of Jesus Christ.

A biblical perspective with a helpful list of manifestations of both pride and humility. You can't read this and not be challenged, encouraged, and humbled.

Landon Chapman
A wonderful primer on removing pride and "putting on" humility.

Get this book. Read it. Read it again. Read it next month. Keep a copy slipped inside the back cover of your bible.

I knew I had pride issues. But I didn't know the half of it. Take a good look into what it means to be proud or humble --it will change your life!
Erin Schanz
Clear, concise, Biblical, convicting. Thinking this should be an annual read.
