New Books from The Sibyls

   

  Little did Christina Beardsley think when she joined Michelle O’Brien in co-editing ‘the Sibyls’ book’, This is my body: hearing the theology of transgender Christians’, that it would be Volume 1 of a trilogy. But that’s what’s happened!   A new book by Chris  and Tina "Transfaith: a transgender pastoral resource",  published by Darton Longman and Todd, is due out soon.

This is Volume 2..... and you can order it now.

Volume 3, will be a very practical, ‘how to do it’ book for churches about making Christian communities safe and welcoming for trans people and their loved ones. It will be published by Jessica Kingsley.

 

Focus Group meetings will be held in London on the 3rd February and in York on the 24th February. The book Transfaith: a transgender pastoral resource will be launched straight after the York event.
