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 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...

Good but... entirely too short.

I love anything by Tim Keller, but this should be a free audible book. it's literally only an hour long. not worth the credit for sure, but I still enjoyed the message.

Keller takes what many of us know in our heads and makes it applicable in daily living

This book shed such profound & practical ‘how to’ in the pursuit of becoming like Jesus… who was the master at self forgetting… I’ve listened to it 2x now and know that I’ll listen to it many more times to get the truths of how this happens, (forgetting myself), engrained in my brain. This is a must read (listen) book for every proclaiming follower of Jesus…. To be like Jesus is to be way less enthralled with ourselves and far more enthralled with other people. This book gets a 10 out of 10!
