A battle rages within every one of us every day. It's the clash between our sense of stubborn self-sufficiency and God's call to recognize that we're really nothing without Him. It's pride versus humility. And it's a fight we can't win without looking repeatedly to Christ and the cross.

C. J. Mahaney raises a battle cry to daily, diligently, and deliberately weaken our greatest enemy (pride) and cultivate our greatest friend (humility). His thorough examination clarifies misconceptions, revealing the truth about why God detests pride and turns His active attention to the humble.

Because pride is never passive, defeating it demands an intentional attack. The blessing that follows is God's abundant favor. Download and start listening now!

    " A must read for every Christian pastor/leader and for all who seek to engage in active warfare against the sin of pride. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 2/15/2014

    " CJ is one of my favorite authors! Home run here! One of my favorite books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 2/11/2014

    " It had some really good practical suggestions to help cultivate humility. One chapter hit me pretty hard. It was about criticizing others instead of focusing on the grace in their lives. I really needed to hear that. I'll probably go back and read that chapter again in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 2/8/2014

    " The Bible says that God "opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble". Here's a practical, down to earth guide on what it means to practice humility. Great stuff. Be prepared to gain a sudden awareness of an enormous log in your eye. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 2/4/2014

    " Must reading for every Christian! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annamaria | 1/27/2014

    " Excellent book. Easy read but take it seriously and digest what the author says. Explains humility from a Biblical perspective which makes a difference in ones life. Being humble is being Christ like. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 1/8/2014

    " This was good -- some chapters drew me in more than others, but I especially liked the last chapter (even though it was kinda written about parenting) -- great principles to take away. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mom | 1/3/2014

    " What it means practically to be humble and proud in the Biblical sense "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James B | 12/28/2013

    " some really good points, very light read. 1 chapter before going to sleep every night. perfect =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 12/13/2013

    " The content in this was good, however I would have liked it better if it had been written with boldness and much scripture verses personal experience. This seemed to have more of a self-help undertone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron Akbar | 11/18/2013

    " This book will change how you view your motives for everything you do. In a good way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dayo Adewoye | 10/27/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri | 10/19/2013

    " this is the best book! it really helped me to put God into the proper perspective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 clAViD | 10/12/2013

    " My book for July. Partly because I always need a reminder. Partly to prep myself for the book to be read in the next two months which may create in me a desire for holiness, but also may make me spiritually prideful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zuzana | 8/14/2013

    " An excellent reminder (many times over) of where my focus ought to be more often!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vaughn | 8/7/2013

    " Amazing! Can't say enough good things about this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 1/29/2013

    " Excellent popular treatment on humility. Fun and convicting chock full of great quotes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarahann | 9/10/2012

    " This is an awesome book. I have read it once, it is a short book, but it is really hard to apply the material that he talks about. I would recommend it highly! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie Haidle | 7/31/2012

    " Simple, short treatment of this topic. Not enough Scripture for my liking! We used this book in a study group. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 6/13/2012

    " One of those "I need to read this every year" books. Not particularly riveting due to style or content, but a very practical devotional work on a subject that no one can ever master and every one needs to pursue. Get it. Read it. Keep it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeffodist | 3/5/2012

    " There are some things I really liked in this book. Like the commentary on Eph. 4:29 and Paul's letter to the Corinthians. But there were some things I didn't care for, like the image of God as executioner--"How will God save? He will save by executing His Son--"(p.54) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 2/25/2012

    " God is using this book to really convict me of my mountain sized pride. One Scripture in the book that I've been meditating on, "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Devin | 1/10/2012

    " A good overview of biblical humility. Mahaney tends to take stances against pop culture that I believe are too extreme. However, I appreciated his pastoral approach to this extensive topic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 11/6/2011

    " This little book by C.J. Mahaney has challenged and encouraged me in powerful ways this week. It's simple, yet paradigm shifting. It takes great depth and courage to write a book on humility, but I am so thankful for Mahaney's contribution with this book. Take and read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bart Box | 10/9/2011

    " The market isn't flooded with books on humility, but this is the best I've read on the subject. Very practical suggestions for cultivating humility litter the book. Given the universality of the problem Mahaney addresses (pride), the book is immediately relevant to every reader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 6/27/2011

    " Great book. Clear, practical & Biblical. A must read for all & especially for anyone in leadership. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josueraul | 5/29/2011

    " Excellent book on humility that is--as it should be--Gospel centered. Mahaney writes clearly, and provides very practical ways of cultivating humility from the start to the end of one's day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Billy | 3/16/2011

    " A must read for every Christian pastor/leader and for all who seek to engage in active warfare against the sin of pride. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 1/18/2011

    " A new book that I've added to my list of books everyone should read! Right after Searching for God Knows What by Don Miller, this ranks up with some of my favorite Phillip Yancey books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 12/24/2010

    " Thanks, Cathy!! I'll read this one more than once... "

    " One of the most painful (in a good way) books I've read in a long long time! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeffodist | 10/3/2010

    " There are some things I really liked in this book. Like the commentary on Eph. 4:29 and Paul's letter to the Corinthians. But there were some things I didn't care for, like the image of God as executioner--"How will God save? He will save by executing His Son--"(p.54) "

    " Reflect on the wonder of the Cross!
