Adopted for Life

Product Review (submitted on August 9, 2010):
I’ve had my eye on Adopted for Life for some time now, and having been offered to review the audio book version by I can say that author Russell Moore has more than met my expectations.

For the past two weeks I’ve listened to the author’s voice reading his own work warmly, with a depth and authenticity that his own journey through adoption has lent to his work. I’ve wept tears into my dishwater as I’ve let myself be absorbed by his thoughts, both theological and practical on the nature of adoption and its important to Christians.

Our family has had a heart for adoption for sometime, but various circumstances in our life have temporarily (I hope) placed it outside of possibilities for our family. It’s my prayer that God is only preparing our family for a time when we too can add children who are currently fatherless into our own household.

Whether you are like us, or are wondering how to support and understand adoptive families in your church or family, are struggling with infertility, want to spearhead an adoption ministry in your church, or just want a clearer image of how physical adoptions mirror the spiritual reality of our own spiritual adoption – then this is a book for you.

Though only seven-hours in length, there is an immense wealth, breadth, and depth of information contained in this work – you won’t find agency recommendations or country-specific regulations here, those change too quickly, but you will find nearly everything else.

Incredibly inspiring, incredibly moving, and incredibly convicting, Adopted for Life is a title I highly recommend for everyone, whether an adoption is imminent in their near future or not.
