There’s been huge cultural change in the last few decades. Same-sex marriage would have been unthinkable 20 or 30 years ago. Now it’s almost universally accepted in the Western world. Now suddenly the issue of transgender is the next big social, cultural issue that has dominated the headlines.

Vaughan Roberts surveys the Christian worldview and seeks to apply these principles to the many complex questions surrounding gender identity. This short book gives an overview and a starting point for constructive discussion as we seek to live in a world with different values, and love, serve and relate to transgender people.

Talking Points is a series of short books designed to help Christians think, talk and relate to others with compassion, conviction and wisdom about today’s big issues.

Timothy Keller

The late Founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City and Chairman of Redeemer City to City.

In this brief book on a complex subject Vaughan Roberts combines the traditional Christian understanding of gender and the body, with a very careful, loving, understanding stance toward transgender people. The two almost never go together, and that’s why this book is so good!

Independent reviews

"Have this on your bookstand"

Camilla Olim, Christian Concern, Sept. 29, 2016

‘Transgender’ is short, accessible, and yet theologically robust and emotionally sensitive. It answers many of the questions Christians may have, equipping them to speak clarity into the confusion. Every church should have this on their bookstand.... continue reading


"An essential read"

Tom Roberts, Bethinking, Oct. 2, 2016

Transgender is an essential read for anyone wanting to get to grips with this important issue. Accessible enough to be read by a youth group; deep enough to provide a helpful starting point to church leaders, parents, teachers and others … It’s not the last word on the matter, but it’s a great place to start.... continue reading


"A valuable primer"

Samuel D. James, The Gospel Coalition, Sept. 20, 2016

Roberts’s book offers a helpful summary of what the church should be saying about transgenderism and gender identity.... continue reading

“Very Good Read!”

(Review written for 'Transgender (ebook)')

This book opened my eyes to an area that was foreign to me before; and it did so in a biblical way; which I am truly grateful for; to understand someone in order to share the love of God with them is very important; and because of the "plain language" information shared within these pages, I feel so much more equipped to do so. Thank you!

“Excellent introduction”

A really brief helpful book for Christians wanting an introduction to transgender from a biblically orthodox stand point.

It's not evangelistic/apologetic (and isn't trying to be) so I wouldn't give it a non-Christian.

“Balanced and helpful”

The book is clearly written, informative and balanced, without being too long or complex

“light weight but good”

If, like me, you have an interest in the whole lgbt issue, then this book on gender dysphoria or transgenderism will provide a basic introduction. It traces the issues as to why transgenderism is growing and challenges the worldly reaction that either says yuk or yes. I am sure, like me, the initial reaction is yuk, partly because it is so obviously at odds with what God has created. But Mr Roberts makes the very real Biblical point that just as true believers are trophies of grace, so we should see unbelievers as targets of grace and not as yuk. We really can be gracious without condoning the sin and we must remember that for all of us, our sins (whatever they are) separate us from God. We also need to realise that very soon (if not already), lgbt people will come into our churches, get saved and start to grow in Christ. We have to be there to help them in their journey towards greater Christlikeness.

“Helpful, truthful and compassionate”

This is a wonderful book to lay out clearly key ideas about the topic of transgender. I would recommend this book to everyone.

“Very helpful introduction”

This book is an excellent intro into the topic of transgenderism from a christian and a solid biblical perspective. One little point of disagreement but other 99,9% brilliant. I think it is a very informed and biblically sound booklet.

“Informative but pastorally thin”

A very readable book with concise and thorough Biblical and theological content. However I felt it was less helpful on matters pastoral and practical.

Nov. 25, 2016

“very clear and readable”

Very clear and readable. Faithful to Biblical teaching yet pastoral and sensitive.

Nov. 10, 2016

“good , concise little book”

Good, clear introduction to this issue from a firm, Christian viewpoint. Suitable to give to young people who may be struggling with this.

Nov. 8, 2016

“Excellent compassionate tool for looking at a Christian response to transgender issues.”

Very clear and a compassionate book. Handling a difficult topic with sensitivity. Will be an invaluable tool for Christians wanting to act as Jesus did to those struggling with this issue.
