Most sins turn us away from God, but pride is a direct attack upon God. It lifts our hearts above Him and against Him. Pride seeks to dethrone God and enthrone itself. How can Christians fight against this sin and develop genuine humility?
In this helpful book, Wayne Mack guides readers through Scripture and shows us how we can take steps to develop humility and diminish the destructive pride in our lives. Readers will find here a resource that is practical, well illustrated, and relevant to their lives.

"It's always with confidence and joy that I recommend Wayne Mack's books. When you read them you know that you've just spent valuable time with our Lord and his powerful Word." ~Elyse Fitzpatrick, author of Idols of the Heart
Pride is one of those sins everyone is marinated in from birth. It permeates the soul, festers in the heart, and oozes out of every pore of our life. Dr. Wayne Mack and his son Joshua do an excellent job of diagnosing the cancer of pride and provide inspired biblical treatment. With the scalpel of Scripture they carefully do surgery on the soul of the reader. Drawing wisdom from both Biblical examples and great preachers of the past they offer practical instruction for extracting the menacing sin of pride and specific steps for replacing it with its glorious counterpart - humility. ~Dr. Jack Hughes, Senior Pastor, Calvary Bible Church, Adjunct Professor of Homiletics at The Master's Seminary, Burbank, CA
