Book Giveaway – David Zahl – Low Anthropology [5 winners]

We’re excited to run this giveaway of FIVE copies of this great new book:

Low Anthropology: The Unlikely Key to a Gracious View of Others (And Yourself)
by David Zahl

Hardback: Brazos Press, 2022


Book Description:

“A lighthearted yet high-minded exploration of failure’s ability to serve as a gateway to grace. Readers will find this a balm.”–Publishers Weekly

Many of us spend our days feeling like we’re the only one with problems, while everyone else has their act together. But the sooner we realize that everyone struggles like we do, the sooner we can show grace to ourselves and others.

In Low Anthropology, popular author and theologian David Zahl explores how our ideas about human nature influence our expectations in friendship, work, marriage, and politics. We all go through life with an “anthropology”–an idea about what humans are like, our potentials and our limitations. A high anthropology–thinking optimistically about human nature–can breed perfectionism, anxiety, burnout, loneliness, and resentment. Meanwhile, Zahl invites readers into a biblically rooted and surprisingly life-giving low anthropology, which fosters hope, deep connection with others, lasting love, vulnerability, compassion, and happiness.

Zahl offers a liberating view of human nature, sin, and grace, showing why the good news of Christianity is both urgent and appealing. By embracing a more accurate view of human beings, readers will discover a true and lasting hope.
