Carl R. Trueman Explores Modern Identity Politics from a Biblical Perspective in This Strange New World Study Set

In his book Strange New World, Carl R. Trueman reviews the history of Western thought—including the Romantics, Nietzsche, Marx, and the New Left—showing how the world arrived at this current era of “expressive individualism.”

This set features the entire Strange New World suite: a copy of the book, a companion study guide, and a DVD video study hosted by Trueman. The study guide walks through each of the book’s 9 chapters, summarizing key points, posing thought-provoking questions, and providing Bible verses for further reading. The video study features 9 brief teaching sessions that further explore important topics including original sin, how culture influences beliefs, and defending biblical convictions. This set helps readers understand the important biblical ideas in Strange New World, making it ideal for small groups or individual study.

  • Helpful Biblical Analysis of Cultural Issues: Examines how technology, pornography, and other influences shaped current identity politics, and discusses the implications of these ideas on religion, free speech, and personal identity
  • Excellent for Individual and Group Study: Includes one copy each of the book, study guide, and video study DVD (running time per session: 10–12 minutes) for guided review and discussion
  • Accessible Resource for Churches: Offers a concise presentation of the concepts in Trueman’s popular book The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self, allowing pastors and laypeople to teach its theological points
