Great book concerning the church's / Christian's relationship with those dealing with transgender issues. Walker demonstrates a loving attitude, affirming biblical standards.
LibraryThing member thedenathome
Excellent presentation of the gospel and how it intersects with the transgender issue. Walker carefully dissects many of the issues, and is thoughtful to provide some quick and short answers to common questions as well. At a little over 160 pages plus appendix/glossary, this is a nicely sized look

at what and how Christians should, and often actually do, respond to this issue and the people who are considering/have chosen some form of transgender identity. Very useful and helpful.
