Max Ehrmann’s prose poem “Desiderata,” with its direct instructions —“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.
