Book Review: Mere Christianity (Book 3, Chapter 8: The Great Sin)

Book 3, Chapter 8: The Great Sin

Lewis writes that the deadliest/worst vice of all is pride. Its antidote is the virtue of humility. Humility involves not thinking about one’s self too much. Humble people are happy, joyful people.

In order to become humble, one must first recognize that one is conceited. Then, one must forget himself.
