About the Book

Man has been known to be a creature naturally resistant to change. He will resist change of anything that to him constitutes a comfort zone, a niche, a power base, or a stronghold—be it environmental, social, physiological, cultural, spiritual, or whatever else. This resistance can stem from a myriad of causes, but we will discuss one of the major ones—pride, as equated to arrogance, stubbornness, self-centeredness. This study will be centred on highlighting the causes and effects of this particular ‘vice’, and how Romans 12:2, which is an imperative personal prerequisite for any Christian before they can begin to contemplate espousing the great commission or the greatest commandments or even attaining the kingdom of eternal life, is not possible for as long as this pride is present in any man. The importance and relevance of embracing and effecting change as pointed out in Romans 12:2 cannot be overemphasised. And pride is the major stumbling block.

About the Author

Works of accredited ministers of the gospel, who present it from a learned, pedagogic, trained minister's standpoint, abound but, a lot of times not resonating with the untrained readers. Lee, not being a trained minister, would like to present this work from a simplistic layman's point of view, at the simple level of the ordinary reader. He wants to communicate with the reader in lay terms that they can easily associate or identify with, without the encumbrance of terminologies that require deciphering. Where some pedagogy occurs, it is presented as a choice, to read or not to read, as it may not necessarily affect the flow or understanding of the material presented.
