Our modern culture is obsessed with identity. However, theologian Carl Trueman argues that no historical phenomenon is its own cause. From Augustine to Marx, various views and perspectives have contributed to the modern understanding of the self. In his timely book, The Rise of the Modern Self, Carl analyzes the development of the sexual revolution as a symptom rather than the cause of the human search for identity. In this episode of the Q Ideas Podcast, he explains what that means for the Church’s witness today, and he gives guidance for the future as Christians navigate our culture amidst humanity’s ever-changing quest for identity.
