Publisher's Summary

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.

Russell D. 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.©2009 Russell D. Moore (P)2010 christianaudio.com

What the Critics Say

"Adopted for Life is a well-written rooting of adoption in biblical theology. Moore, who weaves in the story of the two Russian children he and his wife have adopted, 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; Provost, The King's College, New York City)

    "Less than expected"

    As a prospective adopting parent I was really looking forward to a book written by a man about his experiences with adoption. I was hoping for all sorts of stories and insights about the adoption process, meeting the kids, learning from them, teaching them, growing with a deeper understanding of their culture... Forget it! This book is like a doctoral thesis on religion. I'm a believer so I should have been a bullseye for his target audience and I hated this book. Kept listening to it for awhile, put it away, try it again. If you are an avid Audible listener you know what I mean--you hate to admit you wasted your hard earned money and were fooled by the previews. It happens. I'd recommend something else but Audible doesn't have much on this topic. The Gathering, another book on adoption, is read by a woman who is just plain annoying so I would avoid that one too.

    "Disappointing"

    I thought this audio would be a lot more interesting, especially as it claims to be a book for everyone, and not just people going through the adoption process. However it has not come across that way to me at all.

    I was surprised that there was so much practical advice, as the author says that everything changes quickly in that respect, so there would be no point including practical 'how to' bits. To me that's mostly what this book contains.

    Although on the whole the author narrates his book very well, I did at times find his attitude partronising and sensationalist. However, I did enjoy hearing about the journey him and his wife have taken into adoption, which has been shared very openly.

    This is definitely a very helpful book for those considering adoption and for friends and family too.

    Thanks to christianaudio.com reviewers program for the copy of this audiobook.
