Editorial Reviews

Affirming God’s Image is the book I will recommend first to anyone with concerns about transgenderism. Professor Branch has made a thorough study of the exegetical and medical literature on the subject, and he presents judicious analysis and evaluation of it. Most important, he understands deeply what Scripture says about human sexuality. He urges us to show the love of Christ to people afflicted by gender dysphoria (especially including our own children and youth). But he sees great dangers in gender reassignment surgery and urges a vigorous “no” when that is suggested. He calls us to affirm the sex God has given to us at birth as a precious gift. And he presents these messages to us clearly and with grace. —John M. Frame, retired J. D. Trimble Chair of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary (Orlando)


Careful, compassionate, and faithful, this new volume from Alan Branch is required reading for pastors, counselors, families, and individuals who are struggling with gender dysphoria. Dr. Branch has waded through a sea of literature to distill an approach that calls on Christians to love those who are suffering and to serve them by sharing biblical truth about sexuality. —C. Ben Mitchell, Graves Professor of Moral Philosophy, Union University


Affirming God’s Image by Alan Branch is a timely and welcome resource for Christians needing to understand the transgenderism movement sweeping Western culture in opposition to the timeless Word of God. It is written in terms easy to comprehend but with a thoroughness deserving academic respect. Branch argues transgenderism is not a genetic or neurological trait, is a constructed social identity rooted in many causes, and is entirely contrary to biblical truth making it impossible to reconcile with reliable Christian ethics. I recommend this book with eager enthusiasm and am sure it will be a standard on the subject for years to come. —Daniel R. Heimbach, Senior Professor of Christian Ethics, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
