What are the marks of a supernaturally changed heart?
This is one of the questions the Apostle Paul addresses as he writes to the church in Corinth. He’s not after some superficial outward tinkering, but a deep-rooted, life-altering change that takes place on the inside. In an age where pleasing people, puffing up your ego and building your resume are seen as the methods to “making it,” the Apostle Paul calls us to find true rest in blessed self-forgetfulness.
In this short and punchy book, bestselling author Timothy Keller shows that gospel humility means we can stop connecting every experience, every conversation with ourselves and can thus be free from self-condemnation. A truly gospel-humble person is not a self-hating person or a self-loving person, but a self-forgetful person.
Praise for The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness:
Tim Keller knows that personal freedom is only ever found in viewing yourself from the vantage point of the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Read and experience that freedom yourself.
– Paul David Tripp
An excellent little piece. This is a truly liberating book for anyone who’s ever worried about what other think of them or been caught up in conflict. You’ll find your life explained and then put on the path to freedom.
