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?

Andrew T. Walker is the Associate Professor of Christian Ethics at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Executive Director of the Carl F. H. Henry Institute for Evangelical Engagement.

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.

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.

Sharon James

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.
