Transcendent Christ Transgender Christians

I've long started working on a comprehensive, detailed analysis of transgenderism from a Christian perspective. Something of a apologetic to those who believe being trans is sinful.  This is all a rough draft subject to change; it's not yet up to my own quality standards and I reserve the right to renege any mistakes or conclusions. In other words, it's not yet official. 

I recommend downloading the PDF version, but you can also check out some chapters online.

Book Versus Site

When I started thinking of writing, I could not decide whether this information would be better in paper format or online. I have decided to do both. In a sense, this book is a linear and formalized version of the website; in another sense, the website is a detailed version of the book. I have tried to make this book brief to save costs and attention spans, having only core ideas. The website avoid those problems and contains much more background information and I continually update it.
