Humility the Forgotten VirtueISBN: 9780875526393
Wayne Mack defines pride and humility biblically. He shows us in a multitude of ways that God hates pride (Prov. 6:16-17). He hates the proud with His heart, curses them with His mouth, and punishes them with His hand (Ps. 119:21; Isa. 2:12; 23:29). Pride was God's first enemy. It was the first sin in Paradise and is the last we will shed in death. "Pride is the shirt of the soul, put on first and put off last" wrote George Swinnock.
Mack shows us that pride is a unique sin. Most sins turn us away from God, but pride is a direct attack upon God. It lifts our hearts above Him and against Him. Pride seeks to dethrone God and enthrone itself. How sorely this book is needed in a day when scores of people are drowning in their own forms of unbiblical self-esteem.
