Transforming by Austen Hartke

Hartke_Final Cover.inddAusten Hartke has an easy, conversational style whether he’s inspecting Scripture and its historical and cultural contexts or sharing personal stories. Hartke includes conversations with and the experiences of other trans and nonbinary Christians, which ends up giving the book a truly intersectional lens (and that is vital when discussing about trans issues).

Transforming is honest about the ways the church has failed trans and nonbinary folx and the challenges they face. Cis readers will gain insight and hopefully, empathy. But Hartke’s infectious optimism combined with plenty of positive experiences shared give the book a hopeful, “share the good news!” tone throughout.
