In the spirit of the popular poem 'Desiderata', world-renowned ethicist, theologian and preacher Samuel Wells offers eight exhortations in this extended meditation on being alive in the world and making our way through life.
Each exhortation is simple and direct - be humble, be grateful, be your own size, be gentle, be a person of praise, be faithful, be one body, be a blessing - and accompanied by thought-provoking comments that speak to our deepest needs for meaning and for belonging.
Grounded in perceptive observations of contemporary life and reflecting a deep knowledge of philosophical and religious wisdom, Walk Humbly will inspire you to stop, wonder, reflect, and understand more clearly your life in the world.
"Sam Wells has written a book that catches you in delight and brings you into a place of meeting Christ. With inspiring language and deep thinking, I will be giving it to friends outside the Christian faith who think hard and with imagination about the essence of life as well as its existence... and who appreciate beautiful writing." - Justin Welby
'Whether you are new to Samuel Wells or have trusted him for a long time, this small book will give you reason to think differently about your place in the universe. His counsel to walk humbly includes the neighbors next door as well as the galaxies overhead, giving Christians every reason to live large by remembering our true size.' - Barbara Brown Taylor
