Humility has long been my favorite of the virtues. (Perhaps because it's the one I struggle with the most?) I’ve slowly been “collecting” books on humility and this one might be my new favorite—or perhaps tied with The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness.

What this book has over Keller’s is thoroughness. (Although brevity is also a wonderful thing.) But I felt that Hannah Anderson defined humility better. Where Keller’s strength is his discussion on the ego, he completely neglects the importance of self-reflection.

Anderson doesn’t make the same blunder. Her metaphors were careful, biblical, and easily applied. Also props to her for using philosophy as well as theology!

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a deeper understanding of humility.
