The Catholic Church teaches beautiful lessons about human sexuality and our identity as sons and daughters of God, lessons that promote human flourishing. Yet gender activists and their allies in the government and in the media denounce the Church's message of love as harmful and hateful. How do Catholics respond to that criticism?
In this timely and incisive book, John Bursch helps explain what the Catholic Church teaches about the human person and why modern culture's embrace of "gender ideology" is not only wrong but terribly dangerous for parents and families, female athletes, medical professionals - and especially those experiencing gender confusion. Drawing from Church documents and extensive scientific research, Bursch answers numerous questions that confront Catholics living in a culture that promotes gender fluidity. He covers a range of topics including how to approach the use of pronouns in the workplace, whether transgender individuals can receive the sacraments, and ways to accompany those struggling with gender confusion.

Significantly, you will find ways to develop virtue and courage to withstand the rising persecution of those who promote and defend the Church's teachings and will learn how to respond to practical questions with factual information and authentic spiritual guidance from the pope and Catholic bishops.
The phenomenon of transgenderism discloses a deep suffering that calls for a response of love. John Bursch's book begins from the premise that there is no genuine compassion that is not rooted in truth. - Dr. Lesley Rice
This is to date, the most comprehensive popular treatment available of the Catholic position on gender ideology. John Bursch has provided an excellent guidebook not only for clergy, teachers, medical specialists, and politicians, but also for the average Catholic who is increasingly pressured to conform to the medically, psychologically, and spiritually damaging popular cultural agenda. - Fr. Robert Spitzer
Going from a brief and sophisticated overview of anthropology and philosophy right on to the down-to-earth reality pastors, educators, counsellors and parents must confront on transgender issues, this book will prove to be an indispensable resource. - Fr. Robert Sirico
We all need to know how to respond with rational love to the madness of gender ideology. This book shows us how to do this. For this reason alone, it should be on every good Catholic's reading list. - Joseph Pearce
