The freedom of self-forgetfulness (La liberté dans l'oubli de soi)
What are the marks of a heart radically transformed by the grace of God?
The apostle Paul brings up this question with the Church in Corinth. It does not aim at a "superficial exterior DIY", but a profound change which modifies the interior life, and which offers a real rest in the forgetting of oneself. A radically different approach to our culture that suggests more self-fulfillment or building a solid CV.
In this short and punchy book, bestselling author Timothy Keller , shows that humility, the fruit of the gospel, can make us stop reporting even any experience, any conversation, thus freeing us from any self-condemnation. A truly humble Christian is not a person who has low self-esteem, but who finds freedom in self-oblivion. This freedom is also available to you…
Freedom in self-oblivion is an ideal book to reflect and meditate on our inner life, alone and / or in a group, when of a weekend or a time set aside for oneself. More than 1000 readers have left a positive opinion on this book (see amazon.com) so much they were touched by this profound text. This book will not leave you indifferent.
