This is the rediscovery of genuine, passionate humility as a healthy, life-giving and community-building virtue, capable of transforming our BSE (Blame Someone Else) society. In our celebrity-obsessed culture, humility is unfashionable and too often dismissed or confused with the cringing, false humility of Uriah Heep. Here the author shows that, when genuine humility is energised by real passion, fresh and exciting light is shone on the challenge of following Jesus Christ today and humility is rediscovered as a healthy, life-giving and community-building virtue. Stories and concrete examples as well as allusions to fiction, poetry and art engage the reader's imagination; and big theological ideas are articulated in a highly accessible way. The emphasis on learning from challenging experiences and on very practical application makes this a 'theology travel book', for Lent and well beyond. It powerfully synthesizes values and practices which are often disconnected.

Review:

... an accessible and thought-provoking exploration of what this this 'rare and unfashionable virtue' might look like in daily life once it is let loose from the pages of the bible and hagiographies of saints... [the book] will challenge different people in different ways. --The Pastoral Review Volume 7 Issue 6

... profitable for adult Christian disciples wherever they are in their faith journey. --Franiciscan

About the Author:

Stephen Cherry is Director of Ministry for Durham diocese, a Residentiary Canon of Durham Cathedral and a former Chaplain of King's College Cambridge. He has degrees in Theology and Psychology, and a PhD on the theology and practice of forgiveness. He is an experienced parish priest and a member of all the national Anglican adult learning and professional development networks, as well as of the Receptive Ecumenism (international Roman Catholic and ecumenical) project. He has written for The Independent, the Church Times, Theology and Christian. His contributions to Praying for England (Continuum, 2008) and Forgiveness in Context (T & T Clark, 2004) have been particularly well reviewed -- Theology described his chapter in the latter as 'the jewel in the collection.'
