Love God, Love Your Neighbour, and It’s Ok To Be Trans
By Allyson Hamblett
This book looks at gender through biblical texts and asks whether the biblical account makes room for trans, intersex and gender diverse people. The first and second creation accounts in Genesis suggests that Adam and Eve were more like trans creation rather than binary. Why did Jacob give his son a princess coat? Deborah was a military leader. Jael took down an army and Rehab was loved by God. And what’s going on with those Deuteronomy texts. A wider analysis suggests that the old testament texts lay the foundation for today’s prejudices within the church and in secular society.
