The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness: The Path to True Christian Joy
"In this helpful little book, Dr Keller paints a compelling picture of a truly gospel-humble person who is so taken up with his Lord that he is freed from the constant need to think about himself. We were challenged by it: we pray that you will be too.”See All

“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‚Äìrooted, life‚Äìaltering change that takes place on the inside. In an age where pleasing people, puffing up your ego and building your r√©sum√© are seen as the methods to ‚Äòmake it’, the Apostle Paul calls us to find true rest in blessed self‚Äìforgetfulness.
In this short and punchy book, best‚Äìselling author Timothy Keller, shows that gospel‚Äìhumility means we can stop connecting every experience, every conversation with ourselves and can thus be free from self‚Äìcondemnation. A truly gospel‚Äìhumble person is not a self‚Äìhating person or a self‚Äìloving person, but a self‚Äìforgetful person.
This freedom can be yours‚Ä¶
