Strange New World: How Thinkers and Activists Redefined Identity and Sparked the Sexual Revolution
By Carl R. Trueman

How did the world arrive at its current, disorienting state of identity politics, and how should the church respond? Historian Carl R. Trueman shows how influences ranging from traditional institutions to technology and pornography moved modern culture toward an era of “expressive individualism.” Truman outlines the history of Western thought to the distinctly sexual sexual direction of present-day identity politics and explains the modern implications of these ideas on religion, free speech, and personal identity. This is a short, lay-friendly version of his academic work The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self.
