Book Overview

‘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…

    Please read this short read and powerful reflection, then take a look around and ask ourselves, why are we missing this great gift given to us by Christ. What would this world look like if we lived the verdict not the performance? Tim Keller is quickly becoming my favorite faith author!

    I liked this book so much that I bought a hard copy for every member of my family. It explains clearly why we should not be enslaved to the opinions of others or our own twisted perception of ourselves. Only in Jesus do we truly find acceptance.

    The only philosophy or religion that isn't "works based" and this is how we know it is from God. In life performance leads to the verdict but in Christ the verdict inspires the performance. This counterintuitive model is unique in history. Once again Tim Keller nails it succinctly and eloquently. “Do you realize that it is only in the gospel of Jesus Christ that you get the verdict before the performance? The atheist might say that they get their self-image from being a good person. They are a good person and they hope that eventually they will get a verdict that confirms that they are a good person. Performance leads to the verdict. For the Buddhist too, performance leads to the verdict. If you are a Muslim, performance leads to the verdict. All this means that every day, you are in the courtroom, every day you are on trial. That is the problem. But Paul is saying that in Christianity, the verdict leads to performance” Excerpt From: Keller, Timothy. “The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness.”

    A short read that challenges your ideas about self-esteem and how one views him or herself. I recognized a lot of these traps and have a framework to start pushing back on these faulty ideals.

    I am exhausted waiting for that feeling that I was enough. But it was never about me and I already have that stamp of being approved. Now I understand.

    This little book is so helpful to all of us who breath American culture. If your in it you sometimes can't tell you are until a book like this pulls you out for a moment. Gospel application at its finest! I'll read it again and buy copies for others!
