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…

Seriously recommend the book “The Freedom of Self–Forgetfulness” by Timothy Keller! It’s kind of a gut punch but so good!— Chloe Nielsen (@nielsenchloe) March 23, 2016
An excellent, easy read that gets to the heart of what it means to truly flourish in life – self–forgetfulness. It may sound trite, but Keller unpacks this attractive concept in a way that helps you see that caring more about others than yourself isn’t oppressive. On the contrary, it frees you to live the life you’ve been made to live. It’s rooted in the grace of Jesus – not just to enter his family but to continue living in it.
This is a wonderful book showing the transforming power of the gospel on how we view ourselves. In an age that tries to raise people’s apparent low self esteem, Keller shows very clearly how we as Christians can be different and forget about ourselves. As someone who has issues of both pride and low self–esteem, this is valuable and lovely book; as it says in the title, a very freeing one!
This is a very quick read which definitely merits reading through several times so that its impact can really be of felt and benefitted from. For someone like me who finds it difficult to live out that our identity is in Christ and not in what others think of us, this was a truly refreshing read.
