What’s Wrong With Our World? A 6-week study of C. S. Lewis’s The Abolition of Man, Melvin Tinker’s That Hideous Strength, and Carl Trueman’s Strange New World. Do you find yourself struggling to grasp what is happening in our current cultural climate, especially as every flashpoint issue seems somehow tied to identity, sexuality, and gender? Would you like to be able to converse more meaningfully about these issues with friends, neighbors, and family? If so, this fall study offered by the C. S. Lewis Institute-Greenville is for you. We will read one of C. S. Lewis’s shortest yet most profound books, The Abolition of Man, in which he predicts our current cultural moment with remarkable precision. We will follow it a study of Melvin Tinker’s That Hideous Strength: A Deeper Look at How the West Was Lost (2020) and Carl Trueman’s recent book, Strange New World: How Thinkers and Activists Redefined Identity and Sparked the Sexual Revolution (2022). Read together, these three books – with accompanying lectures and Bible studies – will equip you to understand what makes our present time so challenging and distinctive from past watershed eras. Join us every other Thursday from 6:30-9:00PM, beginning October 6 and ending November 17 (four meetings in all), as we open these illuminating texts together through a combination of lectures, Bible study, and small group discussion. Our prayer is that you will find our present cultural moment less mystifying and feel equipped to engage it meaningfully in whatever circles of influence the Lord has placed you. Please register by selecting your quantity and completing the form. By registering for this event, you agree to be added to our mailing list. You can opt out at any point.
