‘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…
Ken5 Stars Out Of 5I keep reading it again and again!May 26, 2017KenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a very small book - more like a booklet, really. It's no longer than a typical chapter of a book, and seems to simply be a transcript of an amazing sermon that Timothy Keller preached. But does it ever pack a punch! No wonder someone decided to put a cover on it and make it available to people! There is such incredible insight in this book, and it is explained so well that after reading it once, I promptly read it again. I want it to sink in. And I expect I'll read it again just to make sure it does! Keller's aim in this book is to set people free from the futile games we play to achieve what society calls proper self-esteem, and to do so, he points us to Jesus and the Gospel in some very practical ways. I am thrilled that the Lord drew my attention to this book!

cdfranzese2 Stars Out Of 5So-soMarch 28, 2016cdfranzeseQuality: 3Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1For 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?
Gretchen5 Stars Out Of 5It's worth itMarch 1, 2016GretchenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Even 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.
