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.

    "Killed my ego--saved my future!"

    I'm competitive. No, I'm hyper-competitive. And it's mostly about my ego. I simply want to win.

    As a pastor and leader my bent is to want to compete in that arena as well. But my ego can get in the way of hearing from God clearly.

    Keller's insights in The Freedom of Self-forgetfulness have helped me kill my ego driven hyper competitive spirit and allow the Holy Spirit to take the reigns again. And I'm regaining a peaceful and joyful spirit in its place.

    Henry and Richard Blackaby tell us that leadership is the ability to move people onto God's agenda in their excellent book, Spiritual Leadership. I agree with that definition and now thanks to a spirit that isn't as ego driven I'm able to hear from God more clearly about His agenda for me and for the church I'm called to lead.

    "A must read for Christians struggling with low self esteem"

    This book is the biblical answer to self help but it goes so much deeper than self help ever could. By identifying why believing in ourselves is never enough Tim Keller has opened my eyes to some real truths that give me peace.

    "I have listened to it 9 times."

    My favorite of all Tim Keller's books, and one of the most life changing books I have ever read. It refreshes and changes me every time I read it. It is a book for the approval seeker (people pleaser) and those who can't stop focusing on what others think.

    "Oh to live these truths!"

    Short but oh so sweet! Excellent teaching on where true peace and sense of rest comes from: not from accomplishments but from finding our identity in Christ.
