#BookReview: The Freedom Of Self Forgetfulness by Timothy Keller

A Christian Case For A Phenomenon Many Realize As They Mature. In this short text – right around 40 pages or so – Christian theologian Timothy Keller makes a Biblical case for getting onself to the point of both self acceptance and no longer caring what anyone thinks of you. He spins this through his own worldview and builds his case based primarily on a text from 1 Corinthians – and both cites it within its context and doesn’t directly appeal to any other texts to “prove” his points, thus earning a rare 5* rating from me for a Christian nonfiction book. Solid within its frame, as noted here there are other methods for achieving the very same state Keller claims is only possible for Christians, which hurts his case objectively but which is understandable within the author’s own mindset. Very much recommended.
