    Being Transgendered and a Christian Can Happen

    Hello, I am Charlotte Deneice Windham from Grenada,Mississippi,and I am a Southern Christian Pre-Op Transexual.I find it hard to go out in the public,but You can't let people run your life.When I get ready to go out as a woman,I go without hesitation.The book is a good descripition of how you can make it.I go to several different churches,and two of them I go as a woman,and nothing is said,but I do get strange looks at times.I know that I am a Christian and also I have felt like a woman all my life,and at a early age I realized that I was more comfortable in womens clothes than in mans.My wife knows about this and is not real happy but when I do she don't say a lot,but at times she says she could throw up.She doesn't go with me out anywhere,and since she found out I dressed she hasn't had sex with me at all.That has been 20 long years,and I miss that.I have always had a problem with impotence,but if I feel like a woman then It probably shouldn't get hard either and really there should be a vagina down there instead of the male genital.I just feel when I get up that the female clothes should come on,and my day should be like any other woman spends her day. Charlotte Deneice Windham

    Crossing Over: Liberating the Transgendered Christian

    If you or a loved one is transgendered and you have felt in conflict with your Christian faith, help and enlightenment are finally here. Being transgendered and a Christian do not have to be in conflict. As a transgendered Christian, I wish this book had been written years ago. It provides biblically based information to educate those who are transgendered and those who are open to the truth. Churches that are open and affirming to all Christians would do well to include this in their library and to also circulate it amongst both clergy and lay leaders. The book offers many practical ways that Church communities can embrace our little known group.

    Crossing Over: Liberating the Transgendered Christian

    Vanessa Sheridan has successfully tackled a very challenging topic that effects more of the population than most people realize. Being transgendered or gender variant is challenging enough in a society that has not yet begun to understand, much less accept, this fringe group. Now add to that equation being Christian and you have an appreciation for the difficult subject matter of Sheridan¿s book. She does a good job of educating the reader who knows little about the transgender community, but her primary focus is to provide guidance to Christians on how to accept and welcome the gender variant into their faith community. She helps her readers to understand that acceptance versus persecution of transgender Christians is biblically rooted and consistent with the teachings of Jesus. Sheridan finishes her work with several suggestions on how to open a dialogue within the church family to address the needs of the gender variant. I would highly recommend this book to clergy and church administrators along with transgendered Christians who have felt alienated by their religious experiences.
