We all admire humility when we see it. But how do we practice it? How does humility—the foundational virtue of the normal Christian life—become a normal part of our everyday lives?

Jerry Bridges sees in the Beatitudes a series of blessings from Jesus, a pattern for humility in action. Starting with poverty in spirit—an acknowledgment that in and of ourselves we are incapable of living holy lives pleasing to God—and proceeding through our mourning over personal sin, our hunger and thirst for righteousness, our experience of persecutions large and small, and more, we discover that humility is itself a blessing: At every turn, God is present to us, giving grace to the humble and lifting us up to blessing.

"When I read my first Jerry Bridges book twenty years ago, I had the sense that every paragraph had been pondered, prayed over, and carefully prepared. Each ensuing book has led
me to the same conclusion. The writings of Jerry Bridges area gift to the church. In this new book, he addresses a relevant topic with the wisdom of a scholar and the heart of a servant."
---MAX LUCADO, Pastor and bestselling author

"Jerry Bridges helps us remember that the starting point of true humility is a deep understanding of who God is. The more we know Him, the more we can know our true selves.
This exploration of humility is humbling—because it will help you see God more clearly."
---KYLE IDLEMAN Bestselling author and pastor, Southeast Christian Church

"The Blessing of Humility gives us Jerry Bridges at his best: a lifetime of prayer and meditation on Jesus’ first and definitive sermon that frames a life lived in the Kingdom of God under conditions exclusively characterized (eight times!) by blessings."
---EUGENE PETERSON, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, B.C.

"For many, the Beatitudes are beautiful but remote. They hold poetic images but don’t really seem relevant for life. Throughout this wonderful book, Jerry Bridges shows us the grace that’s found when we walk humbly with Christ and the joy that comes from resting in His finished work on the cross. Finally, someone humble wrote a book on humility."
---C.J. MAHANEY, Author of Humility andTrue Greatness
