This book has been definitive in the lives of many. Andrew Murray says that humility lies at the very heart of a successful Christian life. When we came to God for salvation, it was in admitting our need that we found grace. So in every stage of our walk, it is by admitting our lack and realising our utter dependence on God that we are victorious. Moreover, in that God was willing to humble Himself, it is by walking in lowliness of mind that we bear the strongest sign that we are the children of God. “When I look back upon my own religious experience, or round upon the Church of Christ in the world, I stand amazed at the thought of how little humility is sought after as the distinguishing feature of the discipleship of Jesus. In preaching and living, in the daily intercourse of the home and social life, in the more special fellowship with Christians, in the direction and performance of work for Christ,—alas! how much proof there is that humility is not esteemed the Cardinal virtue, the only route from which the graces can grow, the one indispensable condition of true fellowship with Jesus.” — ANDREW MURRAY
