The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self

Cultural Amnesia, Expressive Individualism, and the Road to Sexual Revolution
  • By Carl R. Trueman
$24.99
($34.99)
Product Description

"This book is perhaps the most significant analysis and evaluation of Western culture written by a Protestant during the past fifty years."
--Bruce Riley Ashford, Professor of Theology and Culture, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Modern culture is obsessed with identity. Since the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court decision in 2015, sexual identity has dominated both public discourse and cultural trends--yet no historical phenomenon is its own cause. From Augustine to Marx, various views and perspectives have contributed to the modern understanding of the self.

In this timely book, Carl Trueman analyzes the development of the sexual revolution as a symptom--rather than 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.
