Austen Hartke is the author of Transforming: The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians, and the creator of the YouTube series Transgender and Christian. Today, he sits down with Matthias to talk about his new book, bodies, yoga, and spiritual practices that help us get into our bodies.

Austen is a graduate of Luther Seminary’s Master of Arts program in Old Testament/Hebrew Bible Studies, and is the winner of the 2014 John Milton Prize in Old Testament Writing from the same institution. As a transgender person of faith, Austen’s greatest passion is helping other trans, nonbinary, and gender-diverse people see themselves in scripture.
