Super quick read! I liked his message and agreed with most of what he had to say, but some parts I just wasn’t sure I agreed with.

A thought provoking and liberating exploration of the concept of humility in the Christian faith - all in a small book! Keller's profound insights into the nature of true self worth and the freedom that comes from self forgetfulness offer a refreshing and inspiring perspective on personal identity.

Livro cristão que mostra como tirar o conceito de Ego da sua vida, fazer as coisas porque você quer fazer e não porque será bom para alguém. E como tirar o peso do julgamento diário .

I was skeptical of this (very short) audiobook when I started listening to it because Christian takes on self-love and humility tend to make me nervous. But this was really, really good, and it enriched my faith and my understanding of the human ego. I will be coming back to this teaching many times, I'm sure. (Important to note that this DOES NOT take trauma into account)

“Because the essence of gospel-humility is not thinking more of myself or thinking less of myself, it is thinking of myself less.”

This tiny book is rich with wisdom. It’s one I will read over and over and over again.
