Carl’s biography describes him as a researcher, writer, and lecturer, whose focus is on the “paradigm shift sweeping the Western world,” and affecting many, including Christians. Author of Game of Gods, Carl speaks about the challenges we face in this modern world and describes some of the unusual places he has visited in his research on the historical and contemporary forces of “transformation.” Passionate and precise, he describes himself as “evangelical, pro-liberty vs. politically imposed equality, pro-individualistic vs. consensus collectivism, and pro-free market.” This is Carl’s first appearance at our TBC Conference, and the staff was amazed at the timeliness of his and Tom McMahon’s meeting one another.
Carl Teichrib is a researcher, writer, and lecturer focusing on the paradigm shift sweeping the Western world, including the challenges and opportunities faced by Christians. Over the years he has attended a range of internationally significant political, religious, and social events in his quest to understand the historical and contemporary forces of transformation – including the Parliament of the Worlds Religions, Burning Man, and the United Nations Millennium Forum.
Since the mid-1990s, Carl’s research has been utilized by numerous authors, media hosts and documentary producers, pastors, professors and students, and interested lay people. From 2007 until the end of 2015, he edited a monthly web-based magazine, Forcing Change, documenting and detailing the worldview revolution underway – points of pressure, forces of change.
He frequently speaks to church groups, in conference settings, and occasionally teaches a modular course on Secular/Pagan Trends at Millar College of the Bible.
Carl’s biases are transparent: he embraces an evangelical Christian perspective, is pro-liberty versus politically imposed equality, pro-individualistic versus consensus collectivism, and pro-free market.
