It is… affirmation and shared narrative that can give transgender Christians the courage to carve out a space for themselves in a global church that often ignores or actively persecutes them. To know that you belong to a God who gathers the outcasts and who commands doors to open... this is the kind of love that leads to liberation. (99)

[The image of Jacob wrestling with God] is incredibly familiar to transgender Christians who have spent a portion of their life grappling with their faith and their gender. Sometimes we have to fight to have our gender recognized, and sometimes we fight to be seen as Christians, and sometimes it feels as if we’re just holding on to God with both hands and refusing to let go until God gives us something. (82)
Are we called to sameness, or are we called to oneness? (161)
