A refreshing and much-needed contribution to the public debates about the rights of transgender people. In this scholarly, yet easy-to-read book, the author gives clear, insightful accounts of what she learned while serving a church in which ten percent of the members identified as trans men, trans women, cross-dressers, or genderqueer, and how it motivated her to learn about gender variant people and put her in situations where her previous understanding of the Bible was greatly expanded. She explores: 1. Whether or not God creates only two genders; 2. What Jesus had to say about gender variance; 3. Various understandings of “the cross-dressing passage”; 4. Gender variant groups and individuals in scripture; 5. The movement, within scripture itself, from the exclusion of gender variant people to their inclusion within the people of God. Includes a section with practical suggestions from the author and a discussion guide that can be used with a book group or as a Bible study. A must read for all pastors, chaplains, counselors, and congregants, and for family and friends of transgender people, as well as for gender variant individuals seeking to find their stories in the biblical narrative, and desiring to know how scripture supports them.

“Out of the Blue” is a mother’s story of her family’s transformation after learning their daughter wanted to become their son. Part study on GLBT social issues, part revelation of the personal journey toward accepting her transgender child, the author suggests that parents who say, “I just want my child to be happy!” might not realize what that really means. At last. A smart, wise, and practical User’s Manual of a memoir for ordinary small-town families whose children are no longer “normal” in the eyes of neighbors, relatives, and fellow churchgoers. Written for parents who feel lost, ashamed, and utterly helpless, this book offers down-to-earth examples of what to read, how to listen, and where to seek support from surprisingly sympathetic sources. Moore is a brave and unusual writer who includes notes, essays, and manifestos by others whose interpretations of family lore may be more accurate that her own. She moves back and forth in time to face her illusions, change her mind, and rethink past attitudes. This is the real deal: a how-to guide that keeps on working. Sheryl O'Donnell, Professor of English University of North Dakota This touching account of a family’s journey, from a mom’s perspective, is not only heartwarming, but enlightening at the same time. The author opened her heart to her readers and shared the ups and downs her family faced during this unique time in their life. As a mom of an openly gay son myself, I have encountered several of the same thoughts, questions, confusions, and uncertainties as this author has shared in her story. We never get to etch out the exact path our children will walk in life, but reassuring them that they’re loved and cherished, UNCONDITIONALLY, is key in any person’s growth and inner strength. Regardless of your viewpoint on GLBT issues, this story will apply to some aspect of life for all parents, and what they want for their children. This is a must read to understand the thoughts, struggles, joys, and reliefs that go along with a transgender journey. Very well written; a treasured account of a mother’s love. Karyn Hippen, author “Make Me New: one woman’s fight to mend a broken past”

Just what is gender, and what can be expected of it when dealing with identity, justice, and equality? Ephraim Das Janssen uses a phenomenological approach to challenge and dismantle the way gender is currently understood. Janssen questions ideas that have formerly been taken for granted, as individuals did during the Civil Rights movement, the women’s movement, and the LGBT rights movement. In so doing he recasts the moral debate about gender and grounds his analysis in observable aspects such as clothing and social roles and how these can imply transgression and questioning. Janssen shakes the very core of gender through a deep engagement with Being and the structures that confine our contemporary notions.
