One of the most used words used to describe Christianity and a Christian lifestyle is humility. Our lives—in all their aspects—are to represent humility. Some of us lack clarity about what that truly means. And if we do not understand the true meaning of humility, can we truly lead such lives? What happens if we do not live lives of humility?
Metropolitan Hilarion Dorostolski’s Humility &Pride is a comprehensive treatise on Christian humility, from its true meaning and significance in a Christian life to an everyday guide to cultivating humility in our own hearts. Our Lord Jesus Christ often referred to humility as a necessary condition for acquiring His heavenly kingdom and eternal life. Jesus left us the most profound and perfect example of humility that humankind has ever seen. The fundamental role of humility is also explained in the writings of the early church fathers and further illustrated by their own lives. Humility & Pride offers a diligent summary of these sermons, writings, and personal examples. The author offers a detailed, down-to-earth guide for doing our parts in the Lord’s salvation work on earth, helping us to live lives of humility through grace.
Humility can only be acquired through grace, but we first need to understand what humility means and why it is important, have an actual desire to acquire it, and be willing to practice it in our everyday lives. Humility & Pride helps you find your path.
