Reviews/Comments

“As a Christian who has found himself at odds with many believers about the subject of gender issues I felt I had to read this book after seeing an article in The Guardian. I got far more than I expected, the author not only explores these but tells us about how his faith was not tested, but deepened by his twelve-month journey. All Christians should read this whether gay, straight, liberal or conservative.” – TonyR
