  • Confident Humility: Becoming Your Full Self without Becoming Full of Yourself

    Confident Humility: Becoming Your Full Self without Becoming Full of Yourself

    Self-help books emerge from one of two flawed views of the self--that people are fundamentally bad or fundamentally good--and these mutually exclusive ditches are destructive. Dan Kent presents a third view. He shows how the humility Jesus revealed offers the most accurate, freeing view of the self. Whereas the ditches both lead to powerlessness and passivity, humility as Jesus teaches it is empowering, fosters proactivity, and serves as a scaffold for true confidence.

At the end of this romp through history and pop culture, Hall argues that the God you need may be the very God you rejected years ago.
