OtherWise Christian: What People Are Saying..

What people are saying about: OtherWise Christian: A Guidebook for Transgender Liberation (2019) by Mx Chris Paige [More details about the book]

“In this invigorating dive into scripture… Paige… reads the Bible in provocative ways… brings to the foreground lesser-known biblical figures… surprising yet plausible… strong and imaginative… This is a treasure chest of resources for those interested in ways transgender individuals can live faithful to God and to one’s self.”
Publisher’s Weekly

“This is the book that we need.”

The Rev. Terri Stewart
United Methodist Alliance for Transgender Inclusion (UMATI)

“The most exhaustive look at gender non-conforming/trans identities in the Bible that I have seen to date. Informative & accessible.”

Peterson Toscano
Transfigurations: Transgressing Gender in the Bible

“I am excited to revisit familiar characters and narratives with a new OtherWise lens. This is an extraordinary gift to the trans community and to those, whether transgender or cisgender, who wish to go deeper in the texts to see those of us who have been hidden, erased, and/or disparaged.”

The Rev. Louis Mitchell
Executive Director of Transfaith

“…a truly incredible book. Mx Chris’ writing is clear, elegant, and prophetic, and the book’s intertextual readings of scripture and popular culture are very insightful. This book beautifully answers the deepest possible question: how can we imagine and practice our spirituality in ways that are truly just and liberatory, especially as it concerns our gender.”

Cleis Abeni/Upāsikā tree
Transgender elder

“…a wonderful resource… This is a faith text that CANNOT be ignored.”

The Rev. Shanea D. Leonard
Associate for Gender & Racial Justice for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

“…a brilliant yet down-to-earth, supremely compassionate and practical guide for how religious people who don’t fit binary categories can engage with and draw strength from the Bible… Though addressed to those who identify as Christian… it does a marvelous job of reaching out toward non-Christian religions, particularly Judaism.”
