Carl R. Trueman Explores Modern Identity Politics from a Biblical Perspective with This Strange New World Study Guide and Video Study

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 Strange New World set includes the study guide and video study to help readers dive deeper into the theological points the book presents. Walking through each of the book’s 9 chapters, the study guide summarizes key points, poses thought-provoking questions, and provides Bible verses for further reading. The video study features 9 teaching sessions hosted by Trueman that further explore important theological topics including original sin, how culture influences beliefs, and defending biblical convictions. Helping readers review and discuss the important biblical ideas Trueman presents, this set is perfect 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 Strange New World study guide and DVD (running time per session: 10–12 minutes)
  • 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 share its theological points
