The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness: The Path to True Christian Joy

The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness: The Path to True Christian Joy

$8.99

Booklet
Also Available In

"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 resume 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...

The best smallest book you've read
5 stars By Dan, Feb 07 2017
I loved this book so much I read it multiple times and have since given away copies to many of my friends. It's the best smallest book you've ever read! Keller unpacks the problems of identity as defined by our modern world and gets his readers to consider the truth about each of us as defined by God's Word.

Thought-provoking and practical

An amazing piece written by Keller filled with practical truths. It has definitely helped me think about how to truly and genuinely put others before myself. I would definitely recommend this book to every single person particularly those in leadership positions!

Short and Sweet
5 stars By Ila, Dec 19 2016
What a book!
For those who find it hard to read, this book is for you. It is short and sweet. 
Keller addresses the problem of today's culture which is very self-absorbed and brings you back to the gospel. You can find your identity in the God who loves and forgives you.

Read it
4 stars By Andrew, Aug 10 2016
Read it. It's a quick and easy read. But it's challenging and there is a lot to reflect on and pray about. It's also very practical. I found the stuff in it to be quite liberating and reminded me of the power of the gospel message of freedom. This is one to read and reread.

The Problem with the Human Ego
5 stars By Helen, Aug 08 2016
This is by far, one of my favourite books I've ever read. Tim Keller's unique way of explaining difficult concepts well and shedding light on the 'daily courtroom' we all live in, makes this a great book for believers and non-believers alike. True gospel humility is not thinking more of yourself or less of yourself but thinking of yourself less - and this true freedom from judgement and human pride can only be found in the redeeming love of Christ on that cursed tree. An incredible short book and well worth your time!
