This book was recommended by Robert Hamilton as part of the ‘50 Years- 50 People- 50 Books!’ series. Here is Robert's full message and recommendation:


When were you involved in GLO and in what role?

‘I did what was then known as the “Training for Service” course at GLO Motherwell in 1988/9. From there, together with my wife Muriel and five children we went to serve in Italy as part of a GLO Resident Team. We worked in Naples from 1991-2008.’

Can you share a significant memory of that time?

‘A particular highlight [from Naples] was the summer of 1997 when, with the help of two visiting GLO teams (one from Crescent Church Belfast and another from Deeside Christian Fellowship Aberdeen), we had the joy together with other co-workers of seeing a new church planted in the city of Pozzuoli. ’

Why have you recommended 'The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness'?

‘It’s a short book – only 44 pages and costs less than £3.00! I re-read it at least once a year! In it the author simply encourages the reader to move away from performance-related Christianity (which is often related to what we do and what others think of us) and live out of the liberating truth of being a beloved child of the Father. He encourages us to “re-live the Gospel every time we pray”. Really well worth the read – repeatedly!’

With great thanks to Robert for this recommendation for the ‘50 Years! 50 People! 50 Books!’ series



‘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 résumé 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 ...

UNDERSTANDING GENDER DYSPHORIA PB

Few topics are more contested today than gender identity. In the fog of the culture war, complex issues like gender dysphoria are reduced to slogans and sound bites. And while the war rages over language, institutions and political allegiances, transgender individuals are the ones who end up being the casualties. Mark Yarhouse, an expert in sexual identity and therapy, challenges the church to rise above the political hostilities and listen to people's stories.....
