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 resume 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...

Happy Reader5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful Reminder of Scriptural TruthsOctober 23, 2014Happy ReaderQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4"The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness" is a treasure! It reminded me of my most important identity- in Christ! I don't need to "put myself on trial" because the Lord Jesus has been on trial for me.
I am not better than others, and yet do not need props to help my self esteem, because Christ is my all. Praise Him!
I am one who struggles with people pleasing, and this book helped remind me of the Scriptural truth that I am His! My identity is in Him, and I DO NOT need to perform to make myself accepted by others.
Thank you, CBD, for making this book available!

Even being under God's mercy and grace we are sometimes not free to forget ourselves. We have to think through various Bible passages and to pray for freedom to forget ourselves in the Name of Christ Jesus.
iamhBC, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A profound treasure.October 25, 2012iamhBC, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When it comes to the topic of justification, which, ultimately, this work is about, many authors get carried away in their lofty and highly technical theological categories and jargon. This book does not. It is profoundly practical and highly accessible, though, by no means simplistic. Although the somewhat awkward title leaves people (whom I have given copies to) guessing--sometimes smirking--as to "why I think they need to read this book" (I don't think I have an agenda), the book itself is most relevant to North American (can I go so far as to say, Western) Christians. I personally needed this message.
