Bible Study: The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness

By Timothy Keller

The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness

The title of this book intrigued me. Growing up, I was taught to look out for Number One. If you don’t take care of yourself, nobody else will. How, in our selfie-driven society, could we possibly forget ourselves? Anyway, doesn’t Jesus say, “Love your neighbor as yourself?”

Within The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness, Keller explains it all from a biblical perspective. He shows us the difference between self care and selfishness. If we seem stuck in introspection, his teaching is very revealing of our need to change our perspective.
