Humility and its natural enemy, pride, color every area of our lives. Anyone seeking to follow Jesus needs to follow his example of humility and get low. Jack Wisdom examines how a proper understanding of humility impacts everything from our relationship with God to our view of history, bravery, prosperity, and over a dozen other topics.
"Get Low is the kind of book that serves as a mirror to our own pride. One moment you will be laughing and the next feeling exposed by Jack's candor. This is an amazing book and it will change you!"
"Jack Wisdom's Get Low is a much needed book in today's world. Humility is a subject rarely spoken of, much less learned or practiced, even in our Christian context. Jack does a beautiful job of pinpointing bogus religiosity and reminding us that the kingdom of God can only be established through the humility and service of God's people. I highly recommend this book."
"Jack Wisdom has written a very fine piece of biblical theology that calls us to humility. He writes with a simplicity and clarity that matches his theme of humility and integrity. I found myself being drawn toward repentance and worship as I read. It is a pleasure to commend this book for wide reading and reflection."
"Jack Wisdom is a brilliant attorney also trained in biblical theology. As a partner in a successful and powerful law firm, he is well-qualified to parade among the proud. His life and this book map an alternate path: the way of humility, simplicity, and service. Get Low masterfully weaves the biblical narrative with astute reflections to make a compelling case for the cruciform lifestyle of Jesus followers."
"Get Low is pithy, thoughtful, convicting, and liberating. I give Get Low my highest compliment: I want my children to read this book!"
"The only virtues Jesus ever claimed for himself are gentleness and humility. Jack Wisdom has dug deeply into the Scriptures and reflected faithfully on the Christian tradition, both ancient and modern, to encourage us to follow in the steps of the Master. Jack warns of the perils associated with pride and reminds us of the benefits awaiting those ready to get low. Highly recommended!"
"Get Low is a disturbing book and purposefully so. Jack Wisdom intends to disturb those of us who believe in Jesus but have negotiated for ourselves a lifestyle that looks nothing like the life our Lord lived. Be warned: for the comfortable and the complacent this book is not only dangerous, but necessary."
