When engaging any thinker or any person on any issue, the first important thing to do is to understand how and why they think the way they do. History helps develop this skill.

Carl Trueman’s The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self Review Excerpts:
“This is without question one of the most important religious books of the decade.” ― Rod Dreher, from The Wall Street Journal
“This is a characteristically brilliant book by Carl Trueman… . This book reveals how important it is for thinking Christians to distinguish virtue from virtue signaling. The former makes you brave; the latter renders you a man pleaser, which is a hard line to toe in a world where there are so few real men left to please.” ― Rosaria Butterfield, past ACCS conference speaker and author of The Gospel Comes with a House Key and Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert
