Glynn Harrison on the Modern Crisis of Identity

The latest Cambridge Paper from the Jubilee Centre is available online, this one by Glynn Harrison:

Here is the summary:

‘It has never been easy to answer the question “Who am I?” but increasing social pluralism, the fast-changing world of social media, and easy access to cosmetic surgery make it more difficult than ever. The resulting confusion may undermine wellbeing and threaten social cohesion. The biblical view of human identity as “given” in Christ, worked out imaginatively in relational communities, can potentially buffer these harmful consequences, defend against narcissism and help cultivate personal resilience.’
