Tracing the origins of identity politics throughout pop culture—including social media, the sexual revolution, and various philosophies throughout history—Carl R. Trueman’s Strange New World helps readers think critically about expressive individualism today. How should the church respond to these influences, and what effect will they have on free speech and religion?
Over the course of nine lessons, this companion to Strange New World invites individuals and small groups to thoughtfully engage with each chapter of the book. Guided study, Scripture verses, and discussion questions help readers explore important issues around personal identity from a biblical perspective. The Strange New World Study Guide can also be used with the Strange New World Video Study.
