Overview

Orphanology unveils the grassroots movement that’s engaged in a comprehensive response to serve hundreds of millions of orphans and “functionally parentless” children.
You’ll see a breadth of ways to care with biblical perspective and reasons why we must. Heartwarming, personal stories and vivid illustrations from a growing network of families, churches, and organizations that cross culture show how to respond to God’s mandate. The book empowers:
- churches—to plan preaching, teaching, ministering, missions, funding adoption, supporting orphans;
- individuals and families—to overcome challenges and uncertainties;
- every believer—to gain insights to help orphans in numerous ways.
Discover how to
- adopt;
- assist orphans in transition;
- engage in foster care;
- partner with faith-based fostering agencies;
- become orphan hosts.
Along with their families’ adoption stories, Merida and Morton give steps for action and features on churches doing orphan ministry, faith-based children’s homes, orphan-hosting groups, and other resources.

Meet the Author

Pastor, professor, and father of five, Tony Merida has quickly become a leading voice in the growing movement for adoption and orphan care. His passion for the fatherless is evident through his writing, teaching, and speaking.

Merida’s itinerant ministry includes preaching at various youth, college, and church events, such as Centrifuge, Student Life, Lifeway’s National Collegiate Week, Defend the Faith Apologetics Conference at NOBTS, chapels at various institutions, and others. He also teaches overseas at various seminaries such as Kiev Theological Seminary, Ukraine.

Tony and his wife, Kimberly, have five children—Angela, Jana, Victoria, James, and Joshua. They are currently relocating to Raleigh, North Carolina, where Tony will serve as professor of preaching at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Once in Raleigh, Tony will serve as lead pastor at Imago Dei Church, a church plant starting in September 2011.
