Humility and Human Flourishing

A Study in Analytic Moral Theology

Michael W. Austin

Oxford Studies in Analytic Theology

  • Grounded in the canonical gospels and other New Testament passages, especially Philippians 2:1-11, this study offers a clear and detailed analysis of the Christian virtue of humility
  • Considers the main theological and philosophical objections that have been--or could be given--to accounts of humility in the Old and New Testaments
  • Includes substantial reflection on how humility fosters human flourishing, focusing on moral and spiritual formation and the relevance of humility to certain issues in personal and social ethics
  • Employs the methods of analytic moral theology to gain an understanding of the nature and value of humility
