In The Low Road to New Heights, Bishop Boone points the way to success by learning to think and act like Jesus with daily lifestyle practices in the home, church, and community that are backed by God’s promises of blessing and power. When Christians trust God and humbly obey Him, they grow in spiritual maturity as they learn to serve others and to help lead others to Christ. God keeps His distance from the proud, but He prepares the humble for greatness, blessing, joy, and divine guidance. God’s path to success is the low road to spiritual significance.

Publisher’s Weekly. This slim book is full of useful hints, designed to help readers actually follow Jesus’ example of humility: for starters, says Boone, Christians should pray as Jesus prayed, and they should never hesitate to spread God’s message. But this is not merely a religious how-to. Boone also threads musings on biblical stories throughout; for example, he points to Moses as a model of servant leadership. He draws on more recent historical personages, such as Harriet Tubman, in showing that humility does not make one a doormat. Perhaps the book’s only flaw is that at times it reads like two books in one; interwoven with the discussion of humility is a great deal on leadership. Though this material is not wholly irrelevant Boone suggests that humility is not at odds with leadership, for the best leaders are those who submit themselves to God it nonetheless feels shoehorned. But that is a small complaint with a book so full of insight and wisdom. Boone, never ponderous, writes with a light touch, and his timely reminder of an oft-neglected virtue is sure to be accessible and inspiring to a wide-ranging audience.
