Kort biografi
Rev. Dr. Carl R. Trueman (PhD, Aberdeen) holds the Paul Woolley Chair of Church History and is professor of church history at Westminster Theological Seminary. He has written more than a dozen books, and is currently co-editing with Bruce Gordon the Oxford Handbook of Calvin and Calvinism due in 2017.

Dr. Trueman’s academic interests include Reformation church history, including the life and work of men like Martin Luther and John Owen. For those who are new to Dr. Trueman’s writing and teaching on his research interests, he recommends several resources as places to start. Regarding Reformation church history, he would recommend beginning with his course The Reformation, available free online from Westminster, or his book Reformation: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow. On Luther, he would recommend watching his recent lecture “Martin Luther, Troubled Prophet,” or reading Luther on the Christian Life: Cross and Freedom. On John Owen, he would suggest his book John Owen: Reformed Catholic, Renaissance Man, or watching his recent lecture series on the topic.

Dr. Trueman also writes online regularly at firstthings.com on contemporary issues such as religious freedom, identity politics, and the state of the church. http://faculty.wts.edu/faculty/truema...

Recensioner

Este livro ilustra novamente por que Martinho Lutero permanece um recurso quase inesgotável. Trueman explica por que Lutero pode ser um tão perceptivo, encorajador, humano e até engraçado guia para a vida cristã. Especialmente importante é a clara comunicação de Trueman do porquê de a cruz de Cristo ter alicerçado a abordagem de Lutero a quase tudo, e por que uma ‘teologia da cruz’ pode motivar poderosamente os crentes também hoje.

Recomendações
Se você pensa que conhece Lutero, leia este livro. É uma obra notavelmente edificante e esclarecedora. Exibindo os interesses de um pastor e o rigor de um historiador, Carl Trueman nos proporciona uma análise de Lutero sobre a vida cristã que é tão ‘humana’ quanto o próprio reformador alemão. Mesmo assim, é muito mais do que Lutero sobre a vida cristã. É um dos melhores sumários de Lutero no contexto.

Carl Trueman conseguiu uma tremenda façanha: ele não apenas nos deu um volume que é erudita e historicamente matizado, e ao mesmo tempo acessível e agradavelmente contemporâneo; ele também conseguiu capturar o brilho e a ousadia de Martinho Lutero em um espaço relativamente pequeno. Trueman precisa ser elogiado por apresentar um Lutero que não é como nós em tantas maneiras, e também um Lutero de quem podemos aprender muito.
—Kevin DeYoung, Pastor titular, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan

Trueman shows how persons like Freud, Marx, and Nietzsche influenced those advocating LGBTQ+ agendas and marginalize those who disagree with them. The foreward, written by Ryan T. Anderson of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, suggests this is a shortened and more accessible version of [The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self: Cultural Amnesia, Expressive Individualism, and the Road to Sexual Revolution]. While it may be shorter, the author still uses vocabulary and complex sentence constructions that may be beyond the grasp of a more popular audience.… (mer)

Modern culture is obsessed with identity.
Since the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court decision in 2015, sexual identity has dominated both public discourse and cultural trends — yet 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 this timely book, Carl Trueman analyzes the development of the sexual revolution as a symptom — rather than the cause — of the human search for identity. Trueman surveys the past, brings clarity to the present, and gives guidance for the future as Christians navigate the culture in humanity’s ever-changing quest for identity.… (mer)
