Description

This compassionate, biblical, and thought-provoking book is an accessible guide for Christians who want help navigating issues related to transgenderism.

Preston Sprinkle draws on Scripture as well as real-life stories of individuals struggling with gender dysphoria to help readers understand the complexities and emotions of this highly relevant topic.

With careful research and an engaging style, Embodied explores:

- What it means to be transgender, nonbinary, and gender-queer, and how these identities relate to being male or female
- Why most stereotypes about what it means to be a man and woman come from the culture and not the Bible
- What the Bible says about humans created in God's image as male and female, and how this relates to transgender experiences
- Moral questions surrounding medical interventions such as sex reassignment surgery
- Which pronouns to use and how to navigate the bathroom debate
- Why more and more teens are questioning their gender

Written for Christian leaders, pastors, and parents, Embodied fills the great need for Christians to speak into the confusing and emotionally charged questions surrounding the transgender conversation.

Lisa Bevere

New York Times bestselling author of Without Rival

In Embodied, my friend Dr. Preston Sprinkle tenderly tackles topics most run from. He hosts the very conversations the church avoids or mishandles. This work is researched the way Preston loves ... deeply. I fought back tears as I read and found myself convicted, challenged, and equipped to love, listen, and learn. Everyone deserves to know that they are intimately woven for the love of God.

Lesli Hudson-Reynolds

Gender identity ministry director of Posture Shift

Preston's Embodied is one of the first (and most comprehensive) theological looks into the trans* conversation. As a non-binary Christian I am thankful that he has offered a much-needed voice to this topic. While we do often come to different conclusions, I greatly appreciate his voice in this conversation and his sincere desire to present a holistic approach to better love and understand trans* people in our churches.

The history has not always been good between people of faith and those who identify as transgender. This history, combined with a desire for much better, is what makes voices like Preston's so essential for the times in which we live. Preston has this wonderful, Jesus-like way of flexing the muscles of conviction and compassion, of truth and grace, of law and love, of empathy and human design, all at the same time. As he does this, he not only finds the way but shows the way to befriend, empathize with, and come alongside those whom Jesus has called us to love. I need this book, and I suspect that you do too.
