Product Description

In the West, more and more Christians are coming across the topic of gender identity in their everyday lives. Legislative changes are impacting more and more areas of life, including education, employment, and state funding, with consequences for religious liberty, free speech, and freedom of conscience that affect everyone. So, it’s a crucial moment to consider how to engage lovingly, thoughtfully, and biblically with one of the most explosive cultural discussions of our day.

This warm, faithful and compassionate book that helps Christians understand what the Bible says about gender identity has been updated and expanded throughout, and now includes a section on pronoun usage and a new chapter challenging some of the claims of the transgender activist movement.

Andrew T. Walker also answers questions such as: What is transgender and gender fluidity? How should churches respond? What does God's word actually say about these issues?

Editorial Reviews

Andrew Walker is one of the brightest lights in the evangelical church, which is why he was one of the first people I brought to EPPC. In God and the Transgender Debate he helps the church both understand and compassionately respond to today’s challenges on gender identity. This new edition of the book is needed now more than ever. -- Ryan T. Anderson (President, the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC); Author, When Harry Became Sally)

The Bible tells us Jesus was full of grace and truth. In this book, Andrew Walker follows in the footsteps of the Savior. He speaks truth, but he does it with grace and love. He tackles complex issues with care, clarity, and wisdom. This will be my go-to book for those who struggle to understand this pressing issue. -- Daniel L. Akin (President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary)

Biblically faithful and warmly compassionate, this is a timely resource for any offering pastoral care to those struggling with gender-identity issues. Andrew Walker provides a useful chapter for how parents should address this issue with their children, and also answers a range of commonly asked questions. -- Sharon James (Social Policy Analyst, The Christian Institute, UK; Author, Gender Ideology: What Do Christians Need to Know?)

I am extremely grateful for Andrew Walker’s work on the transgender debate. Throughout my adult life, I have longed to see public issues addressed by Christians in ways that are articulate, intelligent, biblically orthodox, and compassionate. Andrew does exactly that in his writing and speaking. The only way forward for the church is to be faithful, honest, and loving as we subject everything to the lordship of Christ. This book can help us do that with regard to what may be the most challenging social question of our age. -- Hunter Baker (Dean of Arts and Sciences, Union University)

The issue of transgenderism remains hotly contested in our culture and raises a variety of questions for Christians who desire to be faithful to a biblical sexual ethic while also showing love to their transgender neighbors. Andrew Walker offers a wealth of clear, ethical thinking and pastoral sensitivity that is rooted in the authority of Scripture and insights from the best of the Christian tradition. Walker’s book is an excellent go-to resource for church staffs, church reading circles, or parents and teachers who want to think Christianly about how to navigate this issue with both conviction and compassion. Highly recommended. -- Nathan A. Finn (Provost and Dean, North Greenville University)
