'Offers compassionate Christians an intelligent discussion about transgender people and their concerns which has been desperately needed for decades.'
'There is much wisdom here for us all, and many practical resources, including Bible studies, liturgies and pastoral guidelines. Every pastor and theologian should have this book on their shelves, though it won't sit on the shelf for long.'
'It will strengthen your commitment to an imaginative and compassionate pastoral theology.'
A resource for ministers and congregations who want to begin to understand and/or welcome transgender people into their congregations. The book has the following aims: to give the results of the first research based project into the experiences of trans Christians in the UK; to provide a theological and biblical framework by which ministers and congregations can begin to appreciate transgender people's perspectives; to provide a series of insights that inform the pastoral care of transgender people, their families and friends; to provide resources in the form of liturgies and Bible studies that can be used by ministers and congregations exploring the needs of gender variant people.
