The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self, by Carl R. Trueman, Hardcover
- Author: Carl R. Trueman
- Foreword by: Rod Dreher
Our culture is obsessed with identity. Since the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court decision in 2015, sexual identity has prevailed both in public discourse and cultural trends, yet no historical phenomenon is its own cause. From Augustine to Marx, various views and perspectives have fueled the modern understanding of the self.
In this book, Carl Trueman analyzes the development of the sexual revolution as a symptom, instead of the cause, of the human search for identity. Trueman surveys the past, brings clarity to the present, and gives guidance for the future as Christians navigate the culture in humanity's ever-changing quest for identity.
