"No matter how you identify yourself on the wide spectrum of gender--and some people find themselves in significantly different locations on that spectrum from day to day--if you're Christian and you care about issues of gender, transgender, and justice, this book is for you."
--from the Introduction
Based on their own journeys as transgendered Christians, Mollenkott and Sheridan have created an inspiring book about hope, opportunity, struggle, joy, difficulty, and transcendence. They offer information and inspiration while sharing real-life experiences about the joy and pain of being both Christian and gender-variant to illustrate how each person's enactment of their authentic self helps to create an environment that moves toward moral justice for all persons. Those who identify as gender-variant or are struggling with their own identity will find this book a useful companion on their journey. It is also a valuable resource for those seeking to help their communities take the next steps toward a more just society. Chapter topics include:
- Equipping for the Journey - Reordering Our Travel Priorities - Virginia Ramey Mollenkott's Gender-Variant Journey - Vanessa Sheridan's GenderVariant Journey - What Does It Mean to Walk a Transgender Christian Pathway? - Reclaiming Our Territory, Mapping Our Pathway - Developing a Theology for the Transgender Journey - Coming Out as an Act of Faith - Wilderness Pilgrims and Prophets -ÊSteps that Lie Ahead
