Item description for Humility by C. Peter Wagner...
Overview God tells you to love Him with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself. But what attitude must you assume--and what steps must you take--to fulfill this essential commandment of your Christian walk? This book provides a fresh new perspective and a long overdue biblical teaching on this widely misunderstood requirement. Softcover, 130 pages. Regal.
Publishers Description If the summation of the gospel is to love God with all our hearts and our neighbor as ourselves, then the essence of how we fulfill that commandment is found in clothing ourselves in an attitude of humility. First we walk humbly with God; then we practice humility toward our fellow human beings. Becoming a humble person is God's will for every believer, but it is every individual's choice. If we do not choose to walk humbly but instead choose to exalt ourselves, God will humble us in a way that we would never have chosen. This character quality is so dear to God's heart that it is the key to walking closely with Him and finishing life well.

THIS BOOK IS A DISMAL FAILURE, I wish I could rate it with a BIG FAT ZERO! Mar 2, 2006
If you're looking for a really good book on humility, this ain't it. A better, more practical, and thorough text is "Humility: True Greatness," by C.J. Mahaney. C. Peter Wagner's book bored me to tears; it was such a huge disappointment. It was written completely from intellect (the flesh), and not out of the spirit because there was nothing of the anointing of God on this text. It couldn't have been more uninspiring. It was such a boring read that most of it is not even memorable. Of what little I can remember, Wagner failed to impart practical application to the reader. Sure he gave personal examples of his own humility, but even that smacked of his arrogance. If you are truly humble, you don't have to broadcast it. True humility doesn't sound a trumpet. Too much of the book was about Wagner, his achievements, and his own humility. More of it should have pointed to Jesus, and how the reader can apply lessons of humility to his own life. This book failed miserably on all points. PLEASE don't squander your time or your money. Buy C.J. Mahaney's book on humility; it will truly be a blessing to you, and it will inspire you to become more humble in your walk with the Lord.
A most necessary resource Apr 21, 2002
This wonderfully written book has now become one of my favorites. Wagner masterfully proves his authority for writing this manual and then explains that true humility is not something that only a few can achieve. It is a choice that we all must make. A must read for anyone serious in their relationship with God!
