The Blessing of Humility by Jerry Bridges

I believe humility is the most underrated value in our society today. Which makes sense. Humble people are running around the world boasting about their amazing humility. Humble folks stick to their work and they do what is right. They do not seek fame or fortune or any accolades.

With a title The Blessing of Humility I expected a good examination of humility. However, what I found, is a solid overview on the beatitudes. The first and last chapter focus on humility, as well as the last paragraph or so of each chapter. If you remove those, the book doesn’t change much.

The book is good, just not what I expected from the title.
