Item description for Magnificent Meekness: Practicing His Presence in a Secular Society by Morton Bustard...
Overview At one point or another every newlywed couple has to face the question, "Okay, we're married; now what?" They have entered into a lifelong relationship with each other, but how do they make it work? How do they build a successful life together, a marriage characterized by a lifetime of love, joy, friendship, and fruitfulness? In Understanding Love for a Lifetime, Dr. Myles Munroe answers these and other questions that all newly married couples face. Thoroughly biblical and eminently practical, this book addresses such critical but too-often neglected marital issues as communication, financial management, developing true intimacy, and family planning and parenting.
Publishers Description Have you ever wondered why God waited until Abraham was 99 years old to bless him with Isaac? Why did He pick the uneloquent Moses to speak for Him? Could He do no better than Gideon? Rahab was a prostitute. Elijah was a hot head. Leah never won a beauty contest. Jacob was no role model. Peter failed the loyalty test. Paul was a zealous persecutor of the Church. The uncomfortable truth is that God is pleased to work through the weaknesses of our lives. There is nothing more powerful in a believer's life than the strength that comes out of being broken and humbled at the foot of the Cross of Christ. God purposely puts us in the weakening process where we must continually rely upon the grace of the Holy Spirit. One of the greatest preachers who ever lived explained it most adequately: But by the grace of God I am what I am.
The good news is that you do not need to be a paragon of perfection to be used by God. The Church, the people of God, is not a museum of magnificence, but a hospital for the hopeless. No one here has an S symbol on his or her T-shirt. It is more of an infirmary where we admit our weaknesses and limp in the affectionate arms of God's mercy.

A Timely Message Dec 11, 2002
Magnificent Meekness is Morton Bustard's guide to greatness in the now kingdom of God. His major points are that God can and will use us in spite of our weaknesses; God can and will use us in spite of our circumstances; and God can and will us in spite of our mistakes. These are perhaps summed up in Bustard's statement, "The key to highly effective ministers and leaders is they have an understanding of weakness." He challenges us to seek what's best in place of what's right; otherwise, our shrines may become our sepulchres. Alternately uplifting and challenging, it is a book which I hope to share with others as the author requests. Giving the book a good, thoughtful reading should encourage anyone to agree with D.L. Moody who often said:" The world has yet to see what God can do through a man who is totally yielded to Him. I want to be that man." Magnificent Meekness can be the catalyst for change that starts one down the road toward the awesome relationship God intended for all of us to have with Him.
