Publisher's Description

‘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 instead 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 résumé are seen as the methods to ‘make it’, the Apostle Paul calls us to find true rest in blessed self–forgetfulness. 

In this short and punchy book, best–selling 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. 

This freedom can be yours…

    This review was written for The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness.
    For me, this book was forgettable (no pun intended). While his use of Paul and the Corinthians were certainly worthy of use, I found his use of madonna annoying. Why bring in a celebrity who has led so many young girls down the wrong path?

    This review was written for The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness.
    Even though this book is tiny, the message cuts to the very core of self forgetfulness. I found this short book to be all I needed to help me be humble with no additional books or resources. In many christian books I've read, I find myself thinking, "I could've thought of that, it's filled with fluff, what a waste of money, why is the author bragging like he is better than everyone else." But there is no way I could've come up with this type of insight that Timothy Keller reveals from breaking down of scripture in Greek to examine what the Bible has to say about self forgetfulness from an unlikely passage in the Bible. The book is written simply as if he is talking to a friend. This book will set you free from yourself. Sometimes we think the bigger number of pages in the book means better explanation therefore better understanding, this book proves that idea wrong.

    There is a time when Christian self-help books were at their peak, thousands of narratives and anecdotes written about thousands of various topics. This isn't to say that I am adversed to the genre, quite the opposite in fact, I've read some of those thousands of books and have been encouraged, and strengthened by their format of introspection. This book, by Tim Keller, at least for me, cut to the core of what the problem is: me; the ideal that self-forgetfulness is actually the key to self-fulfillment. It became, not about the meditation of how can I look inside of me, praying deeply for me, or even modify outward behavior and thought patterns. This book delves into every part of my being that is desperately seeking fulfillment in all areas of life, other than Christ, that were never intended to satiate that need. The problem is my desire to promote me, to care for me, to better me, etc; Keller explains in his book that what once we begin to forget about our "self" entirely, that is when our focus shifts from me, to those around me. Naturally this assessment is the alter manifestation of a culture that strives to glorify self, but Keller writes compelling truth about what the Bible actually says in obtaining true joy: bettering others, glorifying God, or whatever it is that removes the focus of me.

    All in all, its such a refreshing read, short and accessible. If your looking for a challenging read that might spur your growth as a believer, I would recommend reading this book.

    This review was written for The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness.
    "The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness" is a treasure! It reminded me of my most important identity- in Christ! I don't need to "put myself on trial" because the Lord Jesus has been on trial for me.

    I am not better than others, and yet do not need props to help my self esteem, because Christ is my all. Praise Him!

    I am one who struggles with people pleasing, and this book helped remind me of the Scriptural truth that I am His! My identity is in Him, and I DO NOT need to perform to make myself accepted by others.

    Thank you, CBD, for making this book available!

    This book contains very important emphases on merciful attitude to ourselves. Even being under God's mercy and grace we are sometimes not free to forget ourselves. We have to think through various Bible passages and to pray for freedom to forget ourselves in the Name of Christ Jesus.
