More About This Title Walk Humbly
Max Ehrmann’s prose poem “Desiderata,” with its direct instruc-tions —“go placidly,” “enjoy your achievements,” and others— has inspired millions of readers.
In the spirit of Ehrmann’s “Desiderata,” world-renowned ethicist, theologian, and preacher Samuel Wells offers eight encouragements to readers in Walk Humbly, his own more extended prose poem. Each simple, direct exhortation—be humble, be grateful, be your own size, be gentle, be a person of praise, be faithful, be one body, be a blessing—is accompanied by thought-provoking, insightful comments.
Drawing on startlingly perceptive observations of contemporary life and reflecting a deep knowledge of philosophical and religious wisdom, Wells’s Walk Humbly will inspire readers to stop, reflect, and think deeply about essential existence.
Samuel Wells is vicar of St.Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, London. His previous books include Incarnational Ministry, Incarnational Mission, Shaping the Prayers of the People (with Abigail Kocher), and Learning to Dream Again.
