Originally published in 1866. This is a beautiful statement on pride and humility—how each one manifests itself in real life and how they affect our spiritual lives. God only offers grace to the humble, while he threatens the proud with His resistance. Complete and unabridged. This is the first time since 1873 that the entire text has been published in English. Includes a new preface by Mike Atnip and several illustrations.
Pride and Humility is the first book published by Sermon on the Mount Publishing, in cooperation with Primitive Christianity Publishers. This beautiful edition is a real keepsake and a historical piece.
From the back cover:
Pride. Who hasn’t faced this destructive evil … right in his own heart? Pride is so elusive. Just when we think we have escaped its grasp, we suddenly come to realize that we may be proud of the fact that we are not proud! And like the Pharisee in Jesus’ parable, we begin to think evil of publicans who are beneath our self-appraised dignity. This book is an attempt to teach us humility, so that God’s grace may flow in—and out—of us.
