Adopted for Life by Russell Moore
Adopted for Life is a rare book which connects the Biblical foundation of adoption and one family’s experience of adoption. Intertwined is the story of the author and his wife’s adoption of two young boys from Russia. The narrative is a Biblical explanation and reminder that all who believe in Christ Jesus were once spiritual orphans and have been adopted as God’s daughters and sons.
The author challenges individuals and the Church to consider how our own adoption into God’s family must make orphan care and adoption a priority.
This book does not stop with the challenge, but gives practical advice. From wise counsel on how to know if one should consider adoption, how to ask the uncomfortable adoption questions, how to navigate the adoption process, and an honest description of what it may mean to grow up adopted, the book is a transparent look from one who has experienced the realities of adopting.
For churches and the Christian community, this book is a call to make orphan ministry and adoption a priority as a reflection of love for God and and care for His people.
