“Be true to yourself” is a dominant refrain in the Western world, but how has individualism come to be such a prominent feature of Western thought? To what extent is that individualism Christian?

Glen Scrivener and Andrew Wilson are joined by Carl Trueman, author of The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self and Strange New World, to answer those questions and continue their discussion of our post-Christian world.

Beginning with Rousseau, they trace the ways our idea of the modern self has transformed and shaped our understanding of anthropology. Particularly touching on the transformations in our understanding of marriage, divorce, and sex, they ask how the church has become complicit in these changes and to what extent these individualistic assumptions have shaped both the church and the world.
