Humble Roots Review


 About the Book

Find abundance in a humble life.

A lot of books these days are trying to diagnose our discontentment—too busy, too distracted, too hard on ourselves, too (fill-in-the-blank).

While many of us could do to simplify, peace is not about productivity, saying no, or any other external. It’s about saying yes to our dependence on God. This is what Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul is all about.

Exploring Jesus’ “Come unto me” invitation, Philippians 2, and various texts from the Gospels, Hannah Anderson reveals:

The cause, nature, and dangers of busyness and self-dependence
The myriad benefits of humility
What humility is (and isn’t), and why it’s essential to our identity
How Christ modeled humility through His incarnation
How humility plays out in our salvation and sanctification
How to learn humility and walk in dependence on God
The reason many of us feel so unsettled is that we are attempting to be something we were never intended to be—it’s an internal issue. We need to recover a theology of creaturehood that leads to true abundance, and Humble Roots is the perfect place to start. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts 

I really enjoyed this book. The first first part of the book (part one) really spoke to me and I found myself nodding in agreement with many of the things she writes about. Also, there is some real life humor that I really enjoyed. Everything from anxiety to stewed tomatoes is discussed and for a non-fiction Christian Living book, this is very good. I know many people don't read non-fiction but if you need a fresh perspective on real life this is a pretty good read. 

Five stars.
