The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self
Cultural Amnesia, Expressive Individualism, and the Road to Sexual Revolution
Carl R. Trueman
Explore the history of thought behind the sexual revolution with this timely, informative read. Modern culture is perpetually seeking identity, but where does it come from? From Augustine to Marx, many different perspectives have shaped the way we understand ourselves. The landmark Obergefell v. Hodges decision of 2015 made sexual identity especially salient, but it too is a symptom rather than a cause. The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self by Carl R. Trueman takes a careful look at the roots of the sexual revolution and offers guidance for Christians in navigating an ever-changing cultural landscape.
