‘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…

    What a treasure for people to find. We do not need to be enslaved to the flesh, the Self, the ego. Instead, we can be freed from self. We can choose to live a life that is not bound to how high or low we view ourselves. Instead, we we fill ourselves with love for others, what is called self-forgetfulness. We don’t less of ourselves, we think of ourselves less.
  • Perfectly titled.

    I have often felt trapped in the endless loop of my mind, either in self-flogging or in overweening pride. When my mind/ego is “full of scorpions,” I will review the passage in Corinthians and Keller’s book.
  • Short but poeerful
