Book Review: The Blessings of Humility 

Today's review is on The Blessings of Humility by Jerry Bridges

This was another great book by the late Jerry Bridges. He shows how all the Beatitudes all fall under the attribute of humility and how we as Christians are called to be humble. He argues that Christians are to live out the Beatitudes because they are characteristics of humility.

He does a great job of breaking down each Beatitude and explains how it is linked to humility, how it should be displayed in our lives and how it is connected to all of the other Beatitudes. Once again, he does a great job of grounding his points with Scripture, so that readers are able to see for themselves how it is outlined in Scripture.

Bridges does a good job of reminding believers that humility is not an option, it is commanded in Scripture and it is something that all believers should strive to be. We are called to be humble because Christ Himself was humble. He also makes the point that humility is linked to both a love for God and a love for others, which are the two greatest commandments for believers (see Matthew 22:37-40).

I am giving this book 4.5/5 Stars because it is was really good and convicting, however I felt like it was too short.

Thanks again to Tyndale House Publishers and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Happy Reading,
Janelle L.C.
