There’s been huge cultural change in the last few decades. Same-sex marriage would have been unthinkable 20 or 30 years ago. Now it’s almost universally accepted in the Western world. Now suddenly the issue of transgender is the next big social, cultural issue that has dominated the headlines. Vaughan Roberts surveys the Christian worldview and seeks to apply these principles to the many complex questions surrounding gender identity. This short book gives an overview and a starting point for constructive discussion as we seek to live in a world with different values, and love, serve and relate to transgender people. Talking Points is a series of short books designed to help Christians think, talk and relate to others with compassion, conviction and wisdom about today’s big issues.
I was a bit overwhelmed by all the gender terms in the first part of the booklet, but this is a great starting point in reaching out to gender sensitive people. This resource is a great reminder that showing grace, mercy, and compassion to a lost, confused, and needy generation, are the most important first steps in helping them know Jesus' love.
