The topic of Transgender is one which is constantly in the news media. Much is being said about this and about the approach that Christians take to what is a sensitive topic.

As an introduction, the book “Transgender” by Vaughan Roberts is helpful and we would recommend reading it for a clear and reasonably concise treatment of the topic.

The book is published by thegoodbook company, ISBN 978-1-78498-195-2 and can be obtained from your local Christian bookshop or by going to the website. The cost is just less than £3.

In 2018, The Church of Scotland Mission and Discipleship Council published a booklet entitled “Diverse Gender Identities and Pastoral Care.” Via the three links below, we look, in short items, at the background to this booklet, consider further background on Transgenderism and offer a critique of the Church of Scotland booklet.
