Transgendering Faith is a resource to help churches respond with love and care to transgender people in our society, both those within the Christian community and those who find themselves--unhappily--outside its doors. It is also a book for transgender Christians, their families, pastoral counselors, and clergy.
Part One -- "The Basics for Everyone," includes essays written by professionals and therapists who give readers a basic understanding of the transgender issue.
Part Two--"In Our Own Words"--features stories of transgender persons from diverse denominational, age, ethnic, and racial backgrounds. These are stories of their painful experiences of rejection, self-doubt and "Bible-flavored condemnation," but also stories celebrating God's blessing of who they are and their church and family experiences of hospitality, affirmation, and reconciliation.
Part Three -- includes worship resouces Bible studies, and transgender resources for individual and community use.
