Book Summary

In the constant struggle with hurts, fears, and weaknesses, there is one virtue that is a surprising gamechanger: humility. Discover how owning your limits and depending on God bring the security, strength, and peace you long for.

About the Book

The peace we long for begins with coming to the end of ourselves. 

There are inescapable aspects of life we are all marked by. We have less control than we want, more anxiety than we're comfortable with and just enough insecurity to continually remind us of our shortcomings. To experience these things is to be human. We aren't superheroes and invincibility isn't an option.

But humility is.

Whether we've incorrectly defined it or underestimated its relevance to our daily life, humility is the missing piece for the security, strength and confidence we all want. It's time to stop trying so hard to avoid our limitations or overcompensate for them. God has better for us and it begins with bowing low in humility.

With relatable stories, practical wisdom and biblical theology broken down into digestible takeaways, The Hidden Peace by Dr. Joel Muddamalle will help you:

  • Overcome the fear of being "found out" or looking like a fraud by realizing God's intent for shortcomings and weaknesses.
  • Walk through hurtful situations in the most God-honoring way by gaining a true understanding of biblical humility.
  • Answer the question "why do bad things happen to good people?" by learning a perspective shift that will change how you process suffering.
  • Know confidently that you're living with purpose and being used by God through seven ways to practically live like Him today.
  • Be led by the biblical definition of self-awareness so you can experience the unexpected ways it brings safety and security to your life.
  • Stop believing the lie that theology is out of touch or too difficult to comprehend as Joel shows you how to dig into scripture and study it yourself.


Weakness is not your enemy. Planted in the soil of humility, weakness becomes a means to gaining more strength and more peace.
