Publisher's Summary

Compassionate, biblical, and thought-provoking, Embodied is an accessible guide for Christians who want help navigating issues related to transgenderism. 

Preston Sprinkle draws on Scripture as well as real-life stories of individuals struggling with gender dysphoria to help listeners understand the complexities and emotions of this highly relevant topic. With careful research and an engaging style, Embodied explores:

  • What it means to be transgender, nonbinary, and gender-queer, and how these identities relate to being male or female
  • Why most stereotypes about what it means to be a man and woman comes from the culture and not the Bible
  • What the Bible says about humans created in God’s image as male and female, and how this relates to transgender experiences
  • Moral questions surrounding medical interventions such as sex reassignment surgery
  • Which pronouns to use and how to navigate the bathroom debate
  • Why more and more teens are questioning their gender

Written for Christian leaders, pastors, and parents, Embodied fills the great need for Christians to speak into the confusing and emotionally charged questions surrounding the transgender conversation.

Rich, Loving, and Thorough

There are few subjects that tend to leave us not knowing where to turn than gender identity. Debates over bathrooms, sports, and equality have left us generalizing and fearful of the “what ifs”. Sprinkle gives us a tremendous resource on how to approach the subject in a Christlike manner - loving the person while still honoring biblical truth. It was educational for me and will be a book I will keep in my library for reference and referral. Having him read the audible book was a real treat too. His love for those mentioned in his book was evidenced by his vocal inflections when he quoted them or said their names.
