Description
Read the print book review by Christian blogger, Tim Challies.

Watch an interview with Dr. Moore and blogger, Justin Taylor.

The gospel of Jesus Christ—the good news that through Jesus we have been adopted as sons and daughters into God’s family—means that Christians ought to be at the forefront of the adoption of orphans in North America and around the world.

Moore does not shy away from this call in Adopted for Life, a popular-level, practical manifesto for Christians to adopt children and to help equip other Christian families to do the same. He shows that adoption is not just about couples who want children—or who want more children. It is about an entire culture within the church, a culture that sees adoption as part of the Great Commission mandate and as a sign of the gospel itself.

must read -or must listen :)
This is a fantastic book on the topic of adoption, and not only for those interested in adoption! It sits high on my list of "everyone ought to read" books :)

So far so good
As someone who has adopted 3 times now I was really interested to read this book. I found the things written about adoption interesting and helpful in a ready, accessible form as the author moved effortlessly from autobiography to theology. There are plenty of useful encouragements for all parents to let their theology inform and shape their parenting. However, it gets' three stars from me because the title is unhelpful - perhaps it's premature. It appears that his children have barely reached their teenage years and he's writing about 'adoption for life' I wonder if it might more accurately have been 'Adoption for childhood'. It sounds as though he's laying an excellent foundation for life but surely the greatest issues of identiy for all his children are still ahead of the family. So far so good but at moments I found myself hoping he would still write the same book in 10 years or when he's a grandparent.

A Persuasive Joy
In narrating his book, Russell Moore sets forth the practical application of Christian doctrine on adoption. As one listens, one can hear how he wrestled with the deep truths of what the Bible says about adoption as well as how he has experienced the joy of living out the consequent implications of those truths. One quickly realizes that this audiobook is partly autobiographical and partly pastoral. Moore's authenticity is important as he calls for all Christians to be more involved in the adoption process. Listening to this book was a persuasive joy and has moved my family to seriously consider our involvement in the adoption process. T.D. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
