What People are Saying About This
"The older I grow, the more I am personally convinced that the church is our Lord's answer to the adopting of so many precious children who so desperately are in need of a good home. Dr. Russell Moore has done the church a tremendous service by reminding us in this writing of the call of God to meet the ever pressing needs of these little ones. Read with the intent to obey."
—Johnny Hunt, Former President, The Southern Baptist Convention; Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church Woodstock, Woodstock, Georgia
"Russell Moore shows how churches should view adoption as part of their mission. He shows what a difference it would make if Christians were known once again as the people who take in orphans and make them sons and daughters."
—Marvin Olasky, Editor in Chief, World News Group
"This is a powerfully insightful book of how adoption is a beautiful act of love and mission for the gospel. I pray that God uses this book to encourage and impact many, many lives."
—Dan Kimball, Pastor, Vintage Faith Church; author, They Like Jesus but Not the Church
"This book is for all who have been adopted by God. Moore illumines the beauty and wonder of our adoption in Christ and its profound and necessary implications for orphan care and the earthly practice of adoption. If you want to deepen your worship of the God who adopts and who has revealed himself to be a 'Father to the fatherless,' Adoption will serve you exceptionally well."
—Dan Cruver, Director, Together for Adoption; author, Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father
"The Bible tells us that pure religion is caring for widows and orphans. Dr. Russell Moore challenges Christians to an aspect of Christ's Lordship that many have never considered. His remarkable way of putting our salvation into the context of being adopted into God's family brings a new perspective on being the recipient of undeserved mercy and grace."
—Jerry Rankin, Former President, International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention
