Read Dr. Albert Mohler’s review of this manifesto for Christian worldview thinking in the 21st century.

CNN founder Ted Turner once remarked, “If I only had a little humility, I would be perfect.” In a strange and almost perfectly ironic sense, this statement encapsulates the spirit of our age–an attitude that gives lip service to humility while celebrating self-promotion. Humility is hardly a hallmark of our age. C. J. Mahaney seeks to set the record straight in his new book, Humility: True Greatness.
