Trueman On Transgender-America And The Christian Mission

After persuasively making a fatalistic case that trans ideology will triumph, in the final chapter, Trueman counsels his reader. The solutions he offers are mainly geared toward Christians and may be frustrating to some, as they are not centered on policy changes (and given that it is a short book with one chapter dedicated to a way forward, they cannot be comprehensive).

Christians must revitalize their churches and make them the centers of their communities, engaging in worship and accepting the cross of acting as witnesses for those made in the image of God.
