This is without question one of the most important religious books of the decade.
“The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self out this fall from academic historian and Christian pastor Carl R. Trueman…It’s the book desperately needed by social and religious conservatives: one that explains with profundity, clarity, and directness why traditional religion and morality have melted like wax before late modernity’s flame. We have gotten used to a world that past generations would have called the Apocalypse, said Solzhenitsyn. The Rev. Dr. Trueman’s account shows how that happened, and makes plain the immensity of the task not only not only of cultural recovery, but of cultural survival. This is without question one of the most important religious books of the decade.” – Excerpt from Rod Dreher’s review in The Wall Street Journal
