Dr. Yarhouse demonstrates great care and balance in presenting the issues surrounding the transgender topic. It is readable, yet rigorous. Ultimately, he does not defend a particular point of view, but, focuses more on providing the tools needed for Christians to interact intelligently and respectfully with transgender individuals. This is less of a thesis and more of a toolbox. Overall, 4/5 stars. ( )
