St Augustine's insight was that it is only the merciful humility of God that could penetrate our armoured pride. As we follow this book through Lent and through the Biblical narrative what begins to emerge is that God's merciful humility is the source of life. The chapters of Jane Williams's book include: 'Humble Beginnings'; 'How to win friends and influence nobody'; 'Reigning from a tree' and 'Risen and ascended into humility'. Her reflective Lent book will be a trusted guide for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of God's humility during this religious period.

  • Copyright Page
Williams writes with a subtle simplicity, great insight, and an enviable ability to help us see the familiar in a new light. Each chapter is usefully followed by suggestions for personal or group response and for further reading ... for many people [this] will be their obvious choice for the season. * Church Times * This is an engaging book that many will find informative * Premier Christianity * A fresh, lively, and orthodox answer to the ancient question Cur deus homo?: why did God become man? ... there is nourishing food for thought in these engaging essays, including a brave explanation of the mystery of the Trinity, and a serious case for the essential unity, for reflection and thanksgiving, of Christ's life, death and resurrection. * Times Literary Supplement *
