Learn about Modern Identity Politics from a Biblical Perspective in This Study Set for Carl Trueman’s Strange New World

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 a copy of the book and a companion study guide to help readers explore the important ideas Trueman presents. Focusing specifically on Strange New World’s theological themes, 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. This set, which is ideal for individual study or small groups, can also be used with the Strange New World Video Study, sold separately.

  • Excellent for Individual and Group Study: Includes one copy each of the book and study guide for review and discussion
  • 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
  • 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
