The world has embraced the idea that gender is something that can be decided by individuals. As Christians encounter colleagues, friends and family members who identify as a gender other than the one they were born, we need to be informed and equipped with knowledge about what the issues are, what different terms mean and what the Bible has to say about these things. While we walk the line between loving our neighbour and not buying into the world’s lies, Sharon James helps us in this informative and practical guide.
Sharon James has written several books, and has spoken in conferences in many parts of the world. She studied history at Cambridge University, theology at Toronto Baptist Seminary, and has a doctorate from the University of Wales. Sharon is married to Bill, Principal of London Seminary. They have two grown–up children. She works for The Christian Institute.
A powerful, eye–opening, gracious, and ultimately alarming book that will quickly give readers a deeper understanding of the deceptiveness of the modern ‘gender identity’ movement that is rapidly capturing our media, our laws, our schools, and our children – and even our very freedom to speak the foundational truth that God created the human race with two ‘very good’ genders, male and female, and they cannot be changed.

Though short, it is packed with all the information and background you will need to help you understand what is going on in our culture. Clearly written, well– informed, contemporary and biblical. Personally I would recommend that every Christian have a copy, and every church several. Superb!
Well–known pastor and apologist
This is a remarkable book, both for the range of material covered and its sharp insights into the dominant pathologies of our time. … a book from which all parents, pastors, and the Christian public in general will greatly benefit.

Compassion demands that we grasp the argument of this powerful yet uncomfortable book. This book will help congregations to have clarity where they might be feeling perplexed and it will also help us as we seek to minster in love to those who have been impacted.
