More Than a Private Adoption Story
Prepare to be surprised and deeply affected by the tone and content of this book. It isnít just a personal adoption story, although a breathtakingly beautiful one permeates the pages. Nor is it a theological tome on the implications of adoption, though it is chock full of theology.
His Story Ė Refocused
Have you thought deeply about how you have been adopted as Godís child? Could God use Adopted For Life to let you see familiar truths in a new, stunning form? My understanding of Godís love for me was reaffirmed when it was placed in the context of two unwanted Russian babies languishing in a vile, filthy orphanage. As I contemplated my own adoption into Christís family, dwelling on the reality that I am His wanted & loved child drew me to worship anew. As you look around the church and realize that by this great adoption we are family in the truest sense of the word you not only worship our great Father but are also given a passion to support adoption locally and globally as a picture of what Christ has done for us.
A Book For Families Longing For Children
Russell Moore speaks honestly and directly to the fears and questions adoption raises. Adopted For Life also touches on such subjects as how a home-study works and what about the relatives (In fact, this book could be a great gift for relatives who donít understand why you would want to adopt!).
A Book For Families Who Have Never Considered Adoption
God may not call you to adopt, but by His own example He has called you to treasure adoption, and this book will help you do that.
A Book For Pastors, Elders, & Church Leaders
Scripture affirms that churches grow exclusively through adoption. Everyone who comes to Jesus comes because He adopted them. This book should enable you to minister more effectively to your adopted siblings.
Just Read It
As you might expect, some of the topics in here are rather mature. They are very tastefully addressed, but Iíd suggest pre-reading before handing it off to your children. However, we donít think you can read this book and remain unmoved. Pick up a copy, read it prayerfully, and worship your adoptive Father!
