Heaven Come Down
The story of a transgender disciple
Paperback |304 pp |216 x 135 mm
'Chrissie’s book is powerful, uncomfortable but essential reading as the Church seeks to understand the trauma of gender dysphoria and welcome transgender persons.'
‘Exhilarating and dangerous, like her cycle races, Chrissie’s searingly honest, Jesus-centred emergence as a transgender disciple challenges and heartens. It’s one heck of a ride!’
‘More beauty, more truth, and more pain than have ever been found under one cover. Chrissie’s story breaks you open - and keeps you that way.’
Heaven Come Down is the stunningly powerful testimony of someone growing up with severe dysmorphia and gender dysphoria, in a broken dysfunctional family, and their discovery of hope, love and faith through the healing power of God. Chrissie Chevasutt’s tumultuous journey has taken her through drug addiction, prostitution, and begging on the streets of India, before being led to the feet of Jesus. It is a story of hope for anyone who has or is suffering from addictions, suicidal ideation, homelessness, mental illness and the crisis of sexual or gender identity conflict, and seeks to build bridges in places where the Church and the transgender community have been divided.
