Grove City College Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies Dr. Carl R. Trueman has been named a fellow in the Ethics and Public Policy Center’s Evangelicals in Civic Life Program.
The center is Washington, D.C.’s premier institute working to apply the riches of the Judeo-Christian tradition to contemporary questions of law, culture and politics in pursuit of America’s continued civic and cultural renewal.
“I am deeply honored by this appointment and look forward immensely to working with the outstanding team of scholars at the EPPC,” Trueman said.
The Evangelicals in Civic Life program researches the role the evangelical community plays in American politics and public life. Fellows explore the civic and political activities of evangelicals, taking a look at the broad array of organizations and leaders as well as bringing evangelical leaders together to discuss more effective civic involvement.
Trueman will focus on helping civic leaders and policy makers better understand the deep roots of the current cultural moment. In addition to his scholarship on the intellectual foundations of expressive individualism and the sexual revolution, Trueman is also interested in the origins, rise, and current use of critical theory by progressives.
Trueman, a theologian and church historian, is the author of several books, including the best-selling, award-winning 2020 book “The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self: Cultural Amnesia, Expressive Individualism, and the Road to the Sexual Revolution.”
