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.

Is your EGO in control of your life?

Would you listen to The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness again? Why?

I would listen to this again because although the basic message is simple and essential T. Keller's explanation is academic, thorough, practical and well crafted and will reward a second listening. The question is not whether one's ego or self esteem is too strong or too weak (eg "Does his self esteem need building up?")... the question is why are we considering it at all? Our self esteem should be at one with Christ's ego, our will becomes His will.

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.
