How Christian Humility Upended the World

John Dickson has a great article on  How Christian Humility Upended the World, which is about how Christians contributed the virtue of humilitas to the virtues of western culture.

It is based on his book Humilitas: A Lost Key to Life, Love, and Leadership.

Watch a video about the book here (ironically being promoted and heralding the author’s greatness).

    Confused…I thought/read that humility was part of the corrective to an agonistic culture.

    In others words, it was a step toward being “other-centered”.

    Two “other-centered” people constitute a ‘one’. Father that they be one as we are one….or something like that!
