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 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.
Praise for the book:
"Tim Keller knows that personal freedom is only ever found in viewing yourself from the vantage point of the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Read and experience that freedom yourself."
- Paul David Tripp, President of Paul Tripp Ministries
"An excellent little piece. This is a truly liberating book for anyone who's ever worried about what others think of them or been caught up in conflict. You’ll find your life explained and then put on the path to freedom."
- Tim Chester, author, Enjoying God; Senior Faculty Member, Crosslands Training
"In this helpful little book, Dr. Keller paints a compelling picture of a truly gospel-humble person who is so taken up with his Lord that he is freed from the constant need to think about himself. We were challenged by it: we pray that you will be too."
- Christopher and Carolyn Ash, St. Andrew the Great Church, Cambridge, UK

My friend let me borrow this book because I was struggling with self-consciousness, and it completely transformed my view of myself and gave a new perspective on the Gospel. I haven't felt this free since the time shortly after I was saved. I have been sharing the insights God gave me through this book to everyone I can and am buying a bunch to give to everyone I know. Anyone can benefit from reading this book as it is written to unbelievers and believers alike, and covers a topic we all struggle with. It was astonishing to see just how much this topic of self-esteem impacts every part of your life, and can make a huge difference in your walk with Christ.
