Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)

Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul

Hannah Anderson. Publisher: Moody Publishers, Chicago, 2016.

208 pages
ISBN: 978-0802414595


This book is part theology of incarnation and part stroll through the fields and forest of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Anchored in the teaching of Jesus, Anderson explores how cultivating humility—not scheduling, strict boundaries, or increased productivity—leads to peace. Anderson teaches humility from the lilies of the field and from the One who is humility Himself. Remember who you are and Who you are not, and rediscover the rest that comes from following the model of Jesus.
