The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness: The Path to True Christian Joy | [Timothy Keller]

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

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. This audiobook 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.

Publisher's Summary

'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 audiobook, 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.

    "A great little audiobook"
    Any additional comments?

    This is an excellent little book, well worth taking the time to listen. Although short in length it is packed with wisdom, well read, and challenging. Keller's focus is on developing a healthy sense of self by taking our focus off ourselves, freedom in self-forgetfulness.

    "Torn"

    A good kick in he butt with articulate defense as to why we should shift our focus and say "thank you"for the reprimand. Daily.

    "Great content as usual."

    A very concise look at why Christians cannot find their identity in others opinions or even their own.
